"Better to travel ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books" ~ a Chinese proverb
sued51 has nominated my blog for the Reader Appreciation Award. The title of her blog is very lovely:
Last Train to QVille A Wonderful Place to Visit.
sued51 loves to read and write. We got to know each other’s blog as we both participated in the Weekly Photo Challenge, which gives us a chance to know a lot of blogs that we are not aware of. Through the weekly photos presented by the fellow blogger, I ‘ve got to find some interesting blogs like the Last Train to QVille. I was particularly impressed by her self portrait in the Weekly Photo Challenge : Silhouette
Thank you for nominating me for this Reader Appreciation Award. Although we didn’t talk a lot, I know we appreciate each other’s posts. I look forward to learning more from your posts, particularly your recommendation of authors and poets that you like.
Here are the requirements for accepting this award:
1) Thank the blogger who nominated you and share a link to that blog – Done!
2) Attach the award icon to your site –Done!
3) Answer some specific questions. Unlike many awards which just ask for some random things about you, this asks specific questions as follows (with my responses):
4) And finally, offer “pay it forward” nominations, advising those bloggers that they have been nominated and how to accept.
Dear fellow bloggers, I know some of you have got many awards already, including Freshly Pressed. However, I cannot help nominating you for another award, because I feel that you deserve all these awards. There are a few of you that I have nominated before, but I still want to do that again because you have inspired me so much, that I really want you to accept this special award named “Reader Appreciation Award”, to show my appreciation as your reader. If you don’t want to accept another award, please just acknowledge it in your heart and you don’t have to reply. I will know if I have not heard from you. I just want to use this opportunity to show my appreciation.
These are my nominations:

Additional note: I have posted the link and the badge of the previous Super-Sweet Award here, so that all awards will be in one category. The Super Sweet Award was not intended for my Food Blog, but I posted it there to make the post more interesting since the cupcakes are desserts! I do not want to copy that post here as it may be confusing to all the previous nominees since it was a past event. If you are interested reading the nominations of the Super Sweet Award, please check out the link to that post.
