A BIG Thank You to Keri from Books with Swords for passing on the Kreativ Award to me. The rules are that I must list seven favorite things and nominate seven bloggers for the award.

Here goes:

1. Books (of course!)
2. A necklace/bracelet my best friend gave me
3. Chocolates
4. Fruits
5. Tulips
6. Bookmarks
7. Hard Rock T-shirts (I'm collecting them!)

Finally, I would like to pass this award on to some of the book blogs I have discovered recently: Bermudaonion's Weblog, Giving...Reading - A Chance and Half Deserted Streets.

    Books I Like


  2. BooksPlease Says:

    Impossible for me to choose!


  3. Veens Says:

    God! mostly my answers are BOTH :) just like yours :)

    THANK you for the award! I will be writing a post on that !


  4. Julia Says:

    I mostly answered mine with "both". Because honestly I like both *grin*...But I can see why you prefer stand-alones books *grin* :)

    Happy BTTs! Have a good Thursday


  5. I'm impressed with your self-control in keeping your answers short.

    This has been a great challenge for getting to know other book bloggers better. Happy BTT!


  6. Dot Says:

    Melody you are far more disciplined than me, I couldn't decide between a lot of them! My answers are quite similar though! Happy BTT!



  7. Rhinoa Says:

    Well done for just picking one answer. I rambled a bit and mostly said both or it depends...!


  8. violetcrush Says:

    You choose one for fun? It would have been torture for me to choose just one :)

    congrats on the award, love the 7 things.


  9. Trish Says:

    I would have a hard time choosing just one answer as well! Some I do know for sure--definitely owned and definitely paperback. Congrats on the award--tuplips are such a beautiful flower.


  10. Beth F Says:

    Congrats on your award!!!


  11. Lauren Says:

    Yay yay yay! Thank you! And congrats on YOUR award :)

    I agree with pretty much all of your survey answers, by the way :)


  12. Sandy Nawrot Says:

    Congrats on the award, and thanks for sharing a little more about yourself with us! This is a nice BTT.


  13. Congratulations on your award! It was difficult for me to choose. Happy BTT!


  14. CeeCee Says:

    I needed the quick answers today. Low om coffee. Happy BTT!


  15. I agree, some were very tough to pick!


  16. Vasilly Says:

    I choose almost the same answers as you! I am not into stream-of-consciousness. It's nice for the great language sometimes, but I need a plot.


  17. The name of my blog is "Well-Mannered Frivolity" - can you guess what my answer to number 1 was? It was hard to choose between some of the answers this week though...


  18. mattviews Says:

    This one is not as easy as it seems. I find it difficult to capture my reading behavior in multiple choices!

    I prefer a plot-driven novel that slowly unfolds in fruity and lush prose, with multiple layers and allusion that indulge my mind long after I turn the last page like the lingering aftertaste of a good glass of wine.


  19. Nymeth Says:

    I'd have to say both to some of those...no way I can pick!

    Also, congrats on your award, Mel :D


  20. Melody Says:

    Hello, everyone! Thank you for your comments. I really appreciate them all. Please accept my apologies for replying this one to all.

    This week's meme is fun; I think it's a challenge answering some of the questions considering they are simple questions. :P


  21. You're very welcome, Melody! Aside from your book reviews, I look forward to Wordless Wednesday each week. :)


  22. softdrink Says:

    Except for autobiographies, I would have said exactly the same thing...even on the ones where you wanted to answer both!


  23. Alice Teh Says:

    I answered them at Julia's blog. :D


  24. Melody Says:

    Keri - Thank you again! :)

    Jill - Glad we share the same thoughts!

    Alice - I read your answers, Alice. :) It sure is hard to choose only one, isn't it? :P


  25. Debi Says:

    I don't think I could have stood up to challenge of answering all of those like you did, Melody. Some I just don't think I could ever choose.


  26. Iliana Says:

    Congrats on the award, Melody!

    And, I think I just learned something new about you... hard rock t-shirts? :)

    For some reason bloglines isn't picking up your blog posts for me so I'm a bit behind reading your blog. I hate it when bloglines acts up like that. Anyway, hoping you are spending a great time with your family this weekend.


  27. Kim L Says:

    It's hard to choose without putting in caveats, isn't it? I had trouble answering some of them!


  28. naida Says:

    this was such a fun BTT :O)
    and congrats on your award, it is well deserved!

  29. Melody Says:

    Debi - I know, they're hard to answer considering they're easy questions, eh?

    Iliana - Thanks! Bummer about bloglines; I hope they've it fixed by now! Hope you've a great week ahead, Iliana! :)

    Kim - Exactly!

    Naida - Thank you! :)
