Bookish Dinosaur Art

_SophieTheDino

Hello, bookworms

I decided to make a drawing, and this is the final result! It’s a dinosaur morphing out of a book, and the writing on the page is a quote from the book ‘I Capture the Castle’. The quote is: ‘But I have noticed that when things happen in one’s imaginings, they never happen in one’s life.’ I hope you guys enjoy this post, even though it’s a little different from what a usually do.

P.S Sorry for the crappy scan, I haven’t figured out how to use the scan/fax/print hybrid machine my dad bought yet

The Dragon’s Loyalty Award

_dragonsLoyalty

Hello bookworms,

Today I am going to share seven facts about me with you, since I was nominated for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award (yay)! I was nominated by Michelle over at www.mytokyoblues.wordpress.com (go check out her blog, I discovered it a few days ago and it is very nice), thanks for the award! These are the rules:

The Rules

  1. Display the award on your blog
  2. Announce your win with a post and link the blogger who awarded you
  3.  Present 6 deserving bloggers with the award
  4. Link your awardees in the post and let them know of their being awarded
  5. Write seven interesting things about you.

I am going to start with listing seven facts about me, so prepare your selves for some pretty weird stuff (just joking…).

Facts About Me

  1. I have a cat named Tiddles, and it is a wonder that I didn’t mention him earlier on my blog since he is the only thing I can talk about in real life.
  2. I have to take Latin and Greek at school. I like Latin, but I really hate Greek.
  3. I may be kind of a doubter (still in denial about that one, I think).
  4. I have started NaNoWriMo this year but have only written 363 words, it’s a classic example of the thing where I start loads of projects, but rarely finish them.
  5. I love to climb, and climbed my first 6a recently.
  6. I am a quarter Croatian, and I can understand the language when somebody is speaking to me, but I can’t say anything myself or write it.
  7. I recently started wearing quite a lot of dresses, I am loving it, but it is a hell to bike with.

So, I hope you liked these facts (they are surprisingly hard to come up with)! I am going to tag:

Jocelyn @52lettersinthealphabet

Kelsy @bookaddictkels

Jenny @jenny in neverland

I only tagged three people because the other people I follow were already nominated.

Have fun with this award! And don’t forget to hop over to the blogs of the people I tagged, they all host some pretty amazing book blogs.

Bye, Sophie

Leave a fact about yourself in the comments down below, or just gush about your cat, they are basically the same things.

What’s Better then 99 followers?

Hello, bookworms

As of today, there officially are a 100 bookworms wriggling around on my blog!

THANK YOU!!

This is the part where I am supposed to say I never imagined this ever happening, which is true. When I started my blog nearly two years ago, I remember being sooo excited because 3 people read my blog! 3 people I didn’t know found me on the internet and read stuff I wrote, because they enjoyed it! WWHHHHHHAAATT! For two years I have been blogging, and I have seen the follower count slowly climb up, never imagining it being bigger than 5, 10, 20, 50… And now a hundred people read the stuff I write (it took a while for this to sink in)!

Thanks for leaving comments, and liking my posts, and introducing me to the blogging community, I am enjoying it immensely and am so happy I signed up to WordPress that one Sunday afternoon when I was dying of boredom. Ok, this is enough sappy stuff for now, kudos to you if you made it to this point. I will be back tomorrow with a post on being a self-denying fangirl (probably), so keep your eyes open for that!

Bye, Sophie
