I Am Fabulous Award

Aww...I am so flattered to be nominated for the I Am Fabulous Blog Award. I was nominated by Marie at CupcakeWitch and Bookworm at BookwormBookLovers. I love both of these blogs so much, so I was tickeled that these awesome bloggers like my blog!:)

Here are the rules:
List five things you are obsessed with/addicted to and then nominate five other fabulous blogs to pass on this award on to!
My five things:
1) Books, of course! I can't have enough. I'm addicted to getting books from the library and buying books whenever and wherever I can. I always have been addicted to books-my first word was actually book!
2) Blogging - I am seriously addicted to blogger. I spend waay too much time checking every update on every blog I follow, but I love it and I love connecting with other book lovers. I think this one goes hand in hand with #1!
3) Scrubs-I got my fiance to watch Scrubs a few years back because I liked it and thought he would too. Well, now he's hooked and it's always on. He has all the seasons and we can't miss a new episode when it's on. I'm really sad that this looks like the last season, but at least it's always on on some channel, so we can still get our Scrubs fix.
4) Cookies-I have to have cookies around. Usually it's Oreos, but I love Chewey Chips Ahoy and E.L. Fudge. I'm also in love with the chocolate peanut butter Girl Scout Cookies. If there aren't cookies in the house, I pretty much cry and complain until I can get more cookies.
5) IMDB - I watch too many movie trailers on here and can't watch a movie without looking up to see what else everyone has been in so I know where I've seen them before. I also get started looking up movies coming that are based on books and read the various comments and I can't stop. But, I feel like a movie expert when I know what cool movies are coming out!:)
I am nominating the following fabulous blogs:
Abby at AbbyLibrarian-I'm so glad Abby found my blog so I could start reading hers! It's pink, which I love, and she's a librarian, like me! She posts book reviews and other fun library things about her library, and its always fun to read!
Lauren at Shooting Stars Mag-When I started blogging, Lauren was one of the first bloggers I connected with and started reading her blog. She always has awesome reviews and contests and she's so sweet and funny too! Plus, she loves Harry Potter, so she's of course fabulous!:)
ErikaLynn at Kiss My Book-Erika may be a new book blogger, but she rocks and I'm already addicted to her blog! She also is the one who introduced me to Weekly Geeks, which I hope to start posting soon.
Andy at TeenKing-Yes, this is my fiance, but I'm nominating his blog anyway because he started a blog and now he's reading YA stuff, which makes me super happy! Plus, he's really cute!;)
Rebecca at Rebecca'sBookBlog -Rebecca's blog is one I love reading because she, like me, likes to read historical and romance books. She has great reviews and always posts awesome books to watch for.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
