Zombies & Chickens & Awards, Oh my!

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 worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.

Thank you to my wonderful blog friend, Kim, at Chapter Chit Chat for bestowing the Zombie Chicken Award on my little Slice of Life! I promise, under threat of a zombie apocalypse, to pass this award of excellence on to other bloggers whose posts and book musings inspire and energize me!

First on my list today to receive the Zombie Chicken Award is Lezlie at Books 'N Border Collies. Besides featuring the cutest pups (Skye and Max), her book blog is chock full of interesting links to book-related topics and her writing is informative and concise. I love her plan and mission statement for being a lifelong learner!

I recently discovered Sharon's lovely blog, Sharon's Garden of Book Reviews. It is a very welcoming and peaceful place to visit, as if you have wandered into a secret garden. Her book reviews are excellent -- polished and professional. Treat yourself to a few minutes each day at Sharon's blog.

My favorite genre is historical fiction, and there are so many terrific blogs that specialize in this area. One of my new favorite historical blogs is The Burton Review. Marie writes professional, thorough reviews and makes her blog an enchanting place to visit.

And last but certainly not least, one of the most charming and energetic bloggers that I've had the pleasure of meeting in this book community deserves this award: Reagan at Miss Remmer's Reviews. She's just the most enthusiastic, thoughtful book blogger out there!

So.....there you have it. I will now proudly display this newest token of friendship from Kim and happily pass it along to thank those fantastic bloggers who make this book blogging community so much fun.
