My heartfelt thanks:

1) To whoever nominated Lizzy’s Literary Life for the Most Wanted Book Blogger’s Award 2010.

2) To anyone who even considers casting a vote for me or, indeed,  any of the nominees.

3) To all the wonderful UK (and other)  bloggers who have made my literary life so much more sociable and pleasurable during the past 12 months.  (It was only a few years ago that being a bookworm was such a lonely activity.  How times have changed!)
