                                                  THE READER APPRECIATION AWARD                                          
   
                                            

The Reader Appreciation Award is given to writers who have supported other writers' blogs. Happily, I've received the award from Sharla Shults (Blog: Awakenings from Then 'til Now and and Catnip of Life) and Raani York (Blog: Raani York) who I admire for their fine writing and sustained, determined work ethic. 

Sharla Shults is a poet and writer and has two books out on Amazon Echoes and Remembering.     
Her third book out this summer is Awakenings from Then 'til Now.    

 Raani York has published articles, letters, short stories, poems, continuation stories and novels (some of which appear on her website). One of her short stories made it to the semi-finalist level in a contest sponsored by the Boroughs Publishing Group.  

Giving a big HUG to Sharla Shults and Raani York for nominating my blog, The Fat and The Skinny, for this award and providing the occasion to spread the love around online. As a former English teacher and professor, I uplift any opportunity to engage others in reading which some have claimed is a dying "art" in our digital age of short word bursts and flash fiction.

             SPREADING THE LOVE AND NOMINATING OTHERS WHO HAVE LEFT                SALIENT COMMENTS AND ENCOURAGEMENT ON MY BLOG OR SHARED
                 CONNECTIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA SITES.

Thanks so much Amberr. You are a constant source of inspiration and I look forward to reading your posts, though I do not always have time to comment. I do promote them, though, whenever I can and know that others enjoy reading and sharing on your expanding network.

A pleasure as usual.

Carole
