Another Sunday, another stash! And we kick this one off with a HUGE thank you to a fellow blogger. CJ, I am talking to you!!! She gave me an award!!
The Little CJ Award
CJ and her mini-me Little CJ run the fabulous The Thrillionth Page blog and last Tuesday they blogged about this award that they created. Forget about Premio Dardos. Never mind the Zombie Chicken award. Because clearly the only award worth having is the Little CJ Award. BESTEST Award Ever.
(Little CJ is that good enough for you? GEE, you did NOT have to send me this image as a “friendly” reminder. I WAS going to give away the award today anyways!).
Ahem. Anyways, I shall pass on this incredible award to my bellow bloggers: Tumperkin from Isn’t it Romance and Kmont from Lurve a La Mode (you guys better pass this award pronto – I promise you ,you do not want to suffer the ire of Little CJ).
We had two contests this week and here are the winners (randomly selected using Random.org).

BEA – Book Export America was on this past weekend in NY and Katiebabs has an excellent report of the event.
Speaking of BEA, I have another HUGE thank you to say to the lovely Sarah from the Smart Bitches Trashy Books website. She was at the event when she twitted about this book and how Gail Carriger was signing copies of it:
This is one of the books I REALLY want to read this year and I was all like OMFG, I NEED, I WANT. And Sarah, was all like, I can get it for you. And then I think I passed out. All I know is that she got it, and she is sending it to me all the way to the UK. How is that for coolness? So yeah, Sarah, THANK YOU.
And that is it for today folks!
Have a great week and we will see you around.
