Hot from my inbox:

Dear Lizzy,

Congratulations! Emma Lee here, and your blog, Lizzy’s Literary Life, has
received our 2010 Top 50 Book Blogs award!

Winners were chosen through a scoring system led by internet nominations,
which came from your reader base!


Emma Lee

I was completely unaware of this initiative but here are details of the process which my blog has successfully negotiated.  This gives me the right to collect and display a trophy, (it’s over there  —> , topish right)  but more importantly, it allows me to get dolled up in my best evening gown, borrow some diamonds so as to look drop dead gorgeous when delivering  my long, rambling acceptance speech …..

No, I shall save you and myself that embarrassment and content myself with sincere thanks to those anonymous readers who nominated Lizzy’s Literary Life

Thank you, thank you, thank you,  she says, biting hard on those stiff British lips so that she doesn’t well, you know, disintegrate into an ugly weeping wreck.

Looking  at the list of other award winners, I’m in exalted company.  Really, this is terrific news.  Thank you, again.
