For once, this is NOT a review!
Tonight, when I discovered my very good friend Sue Palmer had awarded me this, I felt more than flattered.
My first thought was, "What ever did I do to deserve this?"
My blog is not very elaborate, it does not hold hot discussions about important subjects, it is only what its name says, my reading corner, the place where the impressions, feelings and thoughts evoked by the books I read find their way from my mind and heart to the written page (or should I say to the screen?).
All I want is to share these feelings and thoughts, and maybe show to other people good books that truly deserve to be read, nothing more.
So, what can I say? Just thank you!

Now, they tell me that with the award comes the task of:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post... I do not know how to do that, I admit my absolute ignorance, so I'll try to do it my own way!

2. Share seven things about yourself... okay, this is hard too. Let's see...

a) I love cats, but I suppose all the world knows that, by now.
b) I love horses too, and horseriding, which I've been doing since I was a child... and this is something few people know.
c) I absolutely love weapons, most of all firearms of the Nineteenth century. My dream is to own a Winchester 1873
d) I tried to shoot my ex-husband. Unfortunately, I chose the wrong pistol and it fired only blanks. But he gave me the divorce without any trouble, after that
e) Once I got to ride a mechanichal Brahama bull... I lasted five seconds, at most, but it was fun!
f)I got to meet Clint Eastwood, when I was 14... just five minutes, but worth a life, at least for a teenager!
g) I wrote my first short story when I was 13, and I threw it away when I was 18

3. Pass the award off to 5 recently discovered blogs and let them know about it... again, choosing it's not so easy... let's see...

Well, it seems I did it!!!!
Now, all of you who are so kind as to pay a visit to my quiet reading corner, go and meet these friends too... I'm sure you'll find other very interesting whings awaiting you there!
