Brotherhood of the World Bloggers Award

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

brotherhood award

I was nominated byย Brittany @ Perfectly Tolerable! (Sorry I took so long in getting this post up, but thanks for thinking of me!). This is actually the first award I’ve been nominated for by another blogger, so I’m honored.

 

Rules:
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the questions sent to you.
  • Nominate around ten bloggers.
  • Create your set of questions for your nominees.
  • List the rules and display the Brotherhood Of The World logo in your post.
Brittany’s Questions:
  • Are you a mood reader or do you plan out which books to read?
  • Who is your favorite superhero?
  • What are your favorite blog posts to write?
  • Briefly explain your blogging style (where is your favorite blogging spot/tools โ€“ as in, on the couch using your smartphone or something).
  • How did you come up with your blog name?
  • Do you have any goals for this year?
  • What do you enjoy most about blogging?
My Answers:
Are you a mood reader or do you plan out which books to read?

I’m both actually. When I can find the time to read books off my tbr shelf, I definitely go for the genres I’m in the mood for. There are times when a book has been on my mind for a long time and I do plan ahead to make sure I read it soon. Other than that, ARCs are the books that I have to plan out; in order of release date.

Who is your favorite superhero?

This is a no brainer for me. I’ve always loved Batman. There’s always something about a broody hero that just calls out to me. My favorite Batman is Michael Keaton’s version.

 

 

 

What are your favorite blog posts to write?

I love writing lists. They are the easiest and the most fun to write.

Briefly explain your blogging style (where is your favorite blogging spot/tools โ€“ as in, on the couch using your smartphone or something).

I usually do all my blogging on the couch with my laptop. Honestly, I can’t stand using my smartphone; it’s just not big enough.

How did you come up with your blog name?

It was actually a bit of a lark. I kept coming up with names and brainstorming with my husband. I was writing down every little idea that came into my head. After what felt like a million ideas, I glanced at my bedside lamp and it came to me. Lampshade Reader. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have any goals for this year?

I’ve mentioned a few times in my Sunday Posts, but eventually I do want to get my blog store active. I have the products ready to go, I just need to find the time. I plan is for it to go live this year. *fingers crossed*.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

 

Interacting with fellow bloggers. When I first started this blog, I wasn’t aware of the large community in the book blog world, so to find fellow minded peeps is awesome.

 

My Questions:
  • Do you have a book boyfriend this year? If so, who?
  • What are your favorite genres to read?
  • Any hobbies?
  • Are you into reading challenges? Which ones do you participate in?
  • How long have you been blogging?
  • Do you have any goals for this year?
  • What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I nominate:

I nominate anyone who wants to do this. I didn’t want to put anybody on the spot. So feel free to do this and let me know if you do! I want to read your answers. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you remember any of the other blog names you thought of? I think Batman is why I like to read about broody characters as well. In fact, I will do this for my next Sunday Post.
