Last year we were flabbergasted. This year, gobsmacked, to be chosen for Best Literary Fiction Book Blog from a shortlist including The New Dork Review of Books, The Picky Girl, Roof Beam Reader, and Reading on a Rainy Day — all fine blogs with good writing, smart insights, great book lists, and strong followings. To be chosen among such a strong shortlist makes this award an especially big surprise!

Thanks so much to the the BBAW organizers and the judges, as well as to all the participants who voted for us. And thanks most of all to the readers who read and comment here regularly. Your regular interest and support is the best award of all!
