Blogs of Note



I was thrilled to discover (thanks, Rebecca) that Blogger chose my blog as a "Blog of Note" on Feb18th (yesterday).

Thanks Blogger, you rock!

Also, happy to see my friend David MacMahon's blog was nominated as well.

**an update** Just want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who stopped by to leave your wishes. I am overwhelmed at the wonderful response and attention my rather humble blog has been receiving...thank you so very much! My whole aim in starting this blog was to spread the love of reading and to get involved with a reading community. I welcome all of you to my blog, please visit often. Thank you!

Congratulations on being chosen as a Blog of Note. Whoever does the choosing was right to award you with the honor. I've enjoyed reading your most recent reviews of books. I checked out The Corpse Walker but found that the events in my life didn't allow me the time to read it. I'll have to give it another try. The Girl from Foreign sounds intriguing as well. I'll be back again to see what you read next!

Good evening,
After blogging all afternoon, my eyeballs are dried up & tired. I was getting ready to happily log off and join my family downstairs when I saw LOTUS READS in Blog of Note.
In Asian astrology, Lotus is my flower. I'm also a librarian. So I had to fly over and take a look-see.
What a fantabulous blog you have here.

I esp. enjoyed reading your Indian posts (I went to India in 2007).
I will have to join the crowd and follow along.
Glad to meet you.

Auntie, aka cagny said...

Good morning Lotus,
Auntie is back for a second look at your blog. My eyes are not as tired and dried-out as before.
WOW, I'm now seeing things I didn't catch last night.
This blog of yours will be one of those blogs I will begin my day with even before I look at my own blog!
haha

Congratz! Your blog deserves accolades higher than this. I know reading is time-consuming and then to have the impressions scribbled for a quality post is yet more demanding. Keep it up.

Hi! Nice to know that Blogger chose your blog as "Blog of Note" last Feb. 18th.. I hope someday Blogger discover mine too. Anyway, I just found your blog on my friend's profile who is Count Sneaky. Congratulations! Keep it up! :D

Auntie, aka cagny said...

Auntie is back!
I must tell you Lotus, your blog has actually motivated me to read MORE. I know it sounds shallow, but your blog makes reading look so cool and fun. As a librarian I often feel reading is just part of the job (like a tiresome chore). Thanks for rekindling my fondness!

Lotus, I loved your blog. I'm pretty fond of reading myself; and found your blog pretty interesting. Am very fascinated with China as a country & your blog on the books on China was great. Have the books on my bookshelf now :) The Eric Meola books also looks fascinating. Thanks.

Good luck & Happy writing
