The Zombie Chicken Award

Zombie Chicken Award
I can’t believe the lovely Heather from Gofita’s Pages considered my blog deserving of a Zombie Chicken Award.  I’m clucking and drooling with delight… thank you Heather.  Heather has also just given her blog a makeover and it looks fantastic.  The details of the award are as follows and then on to my choice of deserving blogs.
The Details:

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.

and the awards go to…..

1.  Kat at the Book Thingo – such a romantic but she’ll kick butt when she has to.  I spend loads of time browsing her blogworld.

2.  Michelle at Galleysmith – a terrific blog and a girl who I’m sure never sleeps, might explain her crush on True Blood!

3.  Stephanie at The Written Word – who by hosting the Everything Austen Challenge has given me great pleasure and a means for getting my Austen reviews written!

4.  April at Cafe of Dreams – for whose dedication and enthusiasm for book blogging is infectious.

5.  Clare from My Pride and Prejudice - who has gathered together the most extensive ‘all things Pride and Prejudice’ this Austen fan has seen!  She, also like me, has an obliging husband who with good grace puts up with our Austen obsession.
