 The purpose of the Liebster Award is to get blogs with less than 200 followers noticed.

The Rules

  2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees.
  3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they've been chosen.

Questions from my nominator:
(now this part is going to be a little tricky, I have 2 sets to answer!)

This first set is from Book Club Librarian

11 Questions from Book Club Librarian

Which book have you always wanted to read, but haven't read yet?

That one is just to hard to answer, if I really want to read a book I buy it!  I already have some I want to read but waiting for the right time.  I end up finding more good ones to read. No matter what I will never say I don't have anything to read. LOL!

How many books do you read a year?
That varies, depends on the size of the book, I usually average 2 400 pg books and a 200 pg book a week.  So I would say about 150 a year (that does not count short stories etc.)
What is your favorite genre?
Easy Sci fi thriller
Do you read more than one book at a time? If so, how many do you juggle?
Usually 3 book at a time (sometimes 4), I try to make sure they are not the same genre. 
Do you own an e-reader?  If so, which one?
Yes, Kobo (had 2 gave one to my sister) and bought a 7in tablet that I use as a reader, it has Kobo and Kindle on it.
