*NOMINATION NO. 2*
*FINALLY FALL BOOK TAG*
(See page 1 for thanks and intro.)

  1. Mention the person who nominated you for this tag.
  2. For each category/ question, assign a book that you have read in the past, and that fits the theme.
  3. Nominate other bloggers.

CATEGORIES and ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. “IN FALL, THE AIR IS CRISP AND CLEARNAME A BOOK WITH A VIVID SETTING.”
  2. “NATURE IS BEAUTIFUL… BUT ALSO DYINGNAME A BOOK THAT IS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, BUT ALSO DEALS WITH A HEAVY TOPIC LIKE LOSS OR GRIEF.”
  3. “FALL IS BACK TO SCHOOL SEASONSHARE A NON-FICTION BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.”
  4. “IN ORDER TO KEEP WARM, IT’S GOOD TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH THE PEOPLE WE LOVE

    NAME A FICTIONAL FAMILY/HOUSEHOLD/FRIEND-GROUP THAT YOU’D LIKE TO BE A PART OF.”

  8. “THE DAYS ARE GETTING COLDER

    NAME A SHORT, HEARTWARMING READ THAT COULD WARM UP SOMEBODY’S COLD AND RAINY DAY.”

    NAME AN OLD FAVOURITE THAT YOU’D LIKE TO RETURN TO SOON.”

  10. “FALL IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR COZY READING NIGHTS

    SHARE YOUR FAVOURITE COZY READING “ACCESSORIES”!”

This is the first time in two years that I choose not to do an/ award tag. Unfortunately, I have a terrible memory when it comes to books, and, unlike other Bookish Beasts, I have not tracked the books that touched my fingers. That is something I only started doing this year, and I shared those in the last month’s award post.

Again, thank you for the warm smile, a nod, and a pat on the back, but I have to bow out of that one. My apologies.

MY NOMINATION:

  1. I never thought about doing something like this before. I have at times accepted awards, but mostly kept the blog as a creative writing outlet. I’ve been wanting to get back to the connections and conversations. It’s definitely something I’m really enjoying these days.

    1. I understand. I didn’t want to spam my blog with award posts, hence the once a month post that encompasses all the awards and tags.

      Indeed. The conversations and connections are very important. They motivate you. They inspire you. They give you an escape.

  2. Haha I’ll have a wild guess why ai got the stormer award 🤫 I am now without laptop, so I guess I will be buying today. Maybe.
    Not one with the bitten apple, but I did buy an iphone. An older model. But I just couldn’t deal with losing all my stuff from the previous one. Mainly cause all the apps for my doodling were expensive to buy again.
    Thank you icloud.

    Ps. I’ll do an apple doodle soon.

    I love citrus as well. Also as ice cream it’s my favorite !

    1. The rules for my Stormer Award are simple.
      1. I count the amount of comments made by every single person. – This is the most important metric.
      2. I might deduct some points if your comments are… not substansial in essense.
      3. Once a winner, you are out of the running for the next … while (not determined yet). I want to encourage everyone, not just one or two people.

      Good luck buying a laptop. I keep delaying having to do the same.

      That’s one of the reasons why I don’t like them. They trap you. Once you’re with them, it’s like prison – you can’t leave.

      I look forward to your doodle.

      Ice cream? Orange? Lemon? Lime? I dislike fruit flavored ice cream. It defeats the whole purposed of the ice cream being a “treat”.

  3. The symbol of a bitten apple? I have no idea what this is about. I’m guessing it has to do with Adam and Eve in the garden. It’s a symbol people are using? Why? Maybe I don’t understand what you mean. 😀 You are really good about coming up with things to say about yourself. Whenever I get the question to say something about myself I go blank. I really have to wrack my brain, but then I probably assume that Tina facts are kind of boring because I’m pretty square, old fashioned and I appreciate the simple things. Hey I just said something about myself. Lol. 😁

    1. Apple’s logo is a bitten apple. I just didn’t want to blatantly use that company’s name.
      Your Eden idea made me smile. What if that’s exactly what the logo represents? People tasting the forbidden apple and being cast away from paradise? I’m probably reaching here, but I like to speculate.

      Not. At. All. I struggle with things to say about myself. Usually, I say something mundane. A phrase, a short sentence. But somehow, this time around, inspiration came. The person that nominated me shared some cool things and she elaborated on them. It motivated me to reciprocate.

      I totally relate to your “boring facts”. I didn’t read that part of your comment when I wrote “mundane”. Yet another thing we seem to have in common.

      Stay golden!

  4. I never knew about the whole page number setup. I don’t know how you do it. 😮 Is it a blog feature or something for that? Thanks for the shoutout nonetheless and I greatly appreciate that you tag along with my own blogging/reading/tv-show-movie-watching life. Keep up the awesome work on your own blog!

    1. I hit shift+alt+P. However, it doesn’t seem to work for everyone. I wish the page numbers were more visible. Maybe if they were placed right under the text instead of way below.

      Your blog is really enjoyable. It motivates me to read more, which I think is one of your goals.

      And thank you for the encouragement.

  5. I never knew anything had a bitten apple 🙈.
    Thanks for your nominations in the past… I know I never acknowledged them for I never knew what to do with them, I really appreciated the thought though and was touched. I know, I know, I should have said so then, whenever they were, but thanks!!!

    1. A very big tech company has it as a logo. Many seem to be confused by that. I’m not sure why… hmm….

      That’s quite alright. People react to them differently. I nominate those that I want. It is up to the people that receive it to do something about it or not. Absolutely no pressure. It’s meant to be fun and not an obligation.

      Stay golden!

        Though it depends on my mood usually which I choose. I like the top hearts best, the candle best, and I think the top glitter looks most like glitter although not especially my favourite. The fireworks are. I love the envelope too.

        1. I think I would go with the first heart, but I do like the envelope, too. I like the candle, but it’s a bit hard to make out on the computer. Maybe there is a more defined candle option? As for glitter, I like the second one.

          Overall, option no.2 is pretty neat.

              1. I’d love sleep!!! It was good. It was/is good to have time to catch up on comments here even if not yet got time to catch up on posts…. been busy today and yesterday was shabbat so just reading/lazing about.
