Thanks to Mark B., I have another awards post to write!
I appreciate when my fellow bloggers give me nominations
for such great awards. I am one who likes the extra ‘pats
on the back,’ along with the evidence that someone, out
there, finds something in my writings.
You may check Mark’s blog for his well written movie
reviews, personal stories and a fine post for the
“ABC Award.” This stands for Awesome Blog Content.
I have been working on my list of ABC’s that were supposed
to reveal even more about myself than anyone would ever
wish to know.
Instead, I am going to list using the alphabet, the names
of authors that I have read, enjoy reading and have interest
in their styles, genres, information and fictional stories.
If you survive my convoluted way of accepting my Award,
through my own way of following rules, you will find some
people’s blogs to read that I highly recommend and have
not included in any of my recent awards’ posts. Some are
almost ‘brand new’ to me, too!
Robin’s Recommendations of Authors in ABC Order:
A is for Alcott, Austen and Angelou.
B is for Ray Bradbury, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert
Browning and Frank Browning.
C is for Catherine Cookson, Stephen Crane and Lewis Carroll.
D is for Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
E is for Janet Evanovich.
F is for F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner and Ian Fleming.
G is for Paul Gallico and John Grisham.
I enjoy Sue Grafton’s books, that coincidentally are written
according to the alphabet! She started with “A is for Alibi,”
and I am a big Kinsey Milhone (her protagonist character) fan!
H is for Nathaniel Hawthorne, Dashiell Hammett, Alex Haley,
Langston Hughes and Joseph Heller.
I is for John Irving, Washington Irving and Henrik Ibsen.
J is for Erica Jong.
K is for Ken Kesey and Stephen King.
L is for Jack London, Harper Lee and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.
M is for Margaret Mitchell, Margaret Mead, Herman Melville,
and Toni Morrison.
N is for Nietzsche, Robert Nathan and John Nichols.
O is for Edwin O’Connor and John O’Hara.
P is for Robert Parker, Edgar Allan Poe and Boris Pasternak.
The P Ladies I enjoy are Sara Paretsky an Jodi Picoult.
Q is for Anna Quindlen and books about Queen Elizabeth.
R is for Nora Roberts and Christina Rosetti.
S is for Shakespeare, Salinger and Steinbeck.
T is for Thoreau and Twain.
U is for Ulysses, Updike and Uris.
V is for Voltaire and Kurt Vonnegut.
W is for William Wadsworth and Alice Walker.
X is for Xeroxing the best of authors’ quotes.
There is an author named, Xu Xi, who wrote “Unwalled City.”
No, I did not read this person’s book.
Y is for Yeats and You.
Z is for Zelda Fitzgerald and Paul Zindel.
Here are the ‘new to me’ bloggers that you will enjoy
reading and finding out more about these folks:
1. Michael’s Poetry is interesting and varies daily
in subject matter. Originality is his forte!
2. It has been awhile, I think, since I have given
Marylin a nomination. As my mother grows more forgetful,
I search and find comfort in Marylin’s helpful articles
about Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Her own personal letters
to her mother are very uplifting.
3. I have become closer acquainted with Cindy and really
wish you would go check out her beautiful sharing of her
trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico. The post I enjoyed was one
filled with gorgeous arches, called, “Los Hermosos Arcos
de San Juan.”
4. For artistry, photography and splendid writing, please
check out Stacy Alexander:
5. There is beauty in this country living blog, with spunk,
courage and the photography captures a friendly place to be:
6. Either she has re-vamped her blog, or I have not realized
that Soul Gatherings has been on my list of places I like to
read that long… for faith and ‘food for thought check this out:
7. Be With Us spreads joy and also, shares their handcrafts. I
enjoy when there is the puppy named Kerby, who is so sweet and
there are little captions of his thoughts. I have nominated this
blog, a long, long time ago. They are due for an update!
8. I have missed a few posts of this fine writer, but will
be checking her out more in the future…
9. Ajay, you have such wisdom and peace in your posts.
10. Eda or Denisa Aricescu who shares poetry in another
language with photographs. You will find after translating
them, wondrous messages…
Congratulations to the nominees of the ABC Award!
Hope you found an author or two that you have enjoyed in
my ABC list and also, find a current author and participant
in our blogging world!
