Media Statement from:
Since the issue was first hinted at last week, the blogging community has been literally awash in rumours about will they or won’t they.
Bombarded by messages (not to mention the threat of a #booksluts_fail), we are pleased to be able to put your minds at ease (for God’s sake stop emailing us!) and proudly announce the opening of nominations for the whenever-we’re-in-the-mood-to-give-it-to-someone-nual…
BOOK SLUTS ‘R’ US BLOGGER AWARD! *woo hoo*
We don’t care who nominates who (in fact preference may be given to those who self-nominate because of the sheer and utter sluttery of the action), but all entries must demonstrate one or more of the following:
-> huge tbr pile (extra points go to those who continue to buy books regardless of the size of this tbr)
-> overextended 2009 book buying budget
-> more than five review blogs on daily reading list
-> blatant book and/or author pimpage
-> unrepentant crowing when said pimpage has an effect on someone else’s tbr
The person selected by our esteemed judging panel (ie Tracy and Kris) will not only receive the Book Sluts ‘r’ Us inaugural Blogger Award, but will be the first inducted to what is sure to become the very prestigious Book Sluts Honour Board. Oh, and we’re going to throw in an ebook of your choice up to $8. (It’s true. We so rock.)
Nominations should be sent by email (krisngoodbooksATgmail.com) and received no later than next Tuesday 11.59 PM (Tracy’s time)/ Wednesday 2.59 PM (Kris’ time – she changed because she got it wrong *sigh*).
Does it count if you buy so many books that your hard drive is in danger of collapse, and you know you have to live to 1000 years to read them all?
Well, I’m nominating myself for overextending my book buying budget. Oh wait, I don’t have one which means I can buy books indiscriminately and never be OVER budget. But its bad, I’m bad. But I figure I don’t buy cocaine or male prositutes so I’m allowed an indulgence. And I nominate Kris for book pimpage. You should wear one of those gigantic pimp hats when you are on-line. No wait, ALL the time. http://images.buycostumes.com/mgen/merchandiser/21990.jpg It screams “BOOK SLUT”.
Tam I think Kris would look fabulous in that hat! lol
I think I actually qualify for all those statements but I’m too modest to nominate myself.I used to have some sort of control over my tbr pile, but it’s got completely out of hand since Christmas, with no hope of ever diminishing cos I keep buying new books. It’s even worse now I’ve started reviewing for Wave.
Ok – I hear the talking about nominations but I’m seeing no emails. Come on people! 😉
Wave: Umm, I think so. LOL.Tam: Dammit I guess that means I have to kick the men and drug habit. *snort*That hat. So me. I’m wearing it virtually now… complete with the eye shadow. ;)Jen: Modesty, schmodesty. You know there’s a free book in it, don’t you??So you blame, Wave, for your recent tbr probs. Hmm. *Adds another excuse to book sluttery.*Tracy: Yeah! They should hurry up already. They only have a week to go. 🙂
Tam I don’t have a book budget either and it kills me sometimes. I just have to stay away from the bookstore unless I want to spend a lot of money. Ok, so there are ebooks but I manage to stay away – sometimes!Wave – 1000 years? Impressive! lolJenre – Understandable – you’re a book slut. Need I say more?Kris? Nice hat.
Do I HAVE to send an e-mail? Can’t post number 2 be considered an e-mail? I’m lazy people, I’ve got too many books to buy and read to be sending e-mails to you guys. Sheesh, the pressure, the pressure. Oh and I nominate Jenre for all categories. There, now she doesn’t have to worry about nominating herself. And I’m nominating Tracy for going over her book budget. Is there a category for tempting people with money back guarantees? Wave does that to me all the time the wicked woman. So far she’s been very lucky she hasn’t had to send me a check or cheque depending where you are living when you read this.
ROFL! I think I’m gurl crushing here. But there’s sooo many blogpals I’d nominate. Guess imma have to do the selfless thing and nominate myself. Wouldn’t want the other friends to get mad and feel left out if I didn’t pick them to nominate.
Tracy: Considering the fact that we are judges, do you think we can accept nominations of our selves?? There’s a free book involved. I’m all for it.Tam: Did you not read the bit that said email?? Email already!Emmy: *wipes tear from eye* What a beautiful selfless act, Emmy. Just beautiful. *sniffle*Oh, and bonus points are added for the admission of girl crushes, our adorableness, etc.
…and you know you have to live to 1000 years to read them all?Seriously? WOW!OK, I’ve emailed, but I’ve nominated three people (because no where does it say that you can only nominate one 🙂 And who am I nominating?- Kris, because it is completely obvious you qualify on all counts :)- Jesswave – because having enough books to read for 1000 years in insane…but fantastic!-KatieBabs AKA KB – because that woman lives and breaths books… 🙂
*crossing fingers in the hopes that Tracy let’s me be included in the award nominations*
Just thinkin’ SissyI wanna be nominated! ‘Cos you know that your father never read a book until you were 9 months old. So you really got your love of reading from us M…s.Not beggin’ or nothin’, really!Mumma
Can we be nominated? hmmm…doesn’t buying ourselves a book defeat the purpose? Oh, all right – go ahead and nominate Kris! lolTam – thanks for the nom! 🙂
Mumma: So you’re playing the ‘you wouldn’t had gotten here if it wasn;t for me’ card?? Noice. Hee, hee.Tracy: My thoughts are that it gives us another reason to but ourselves a book. It’s a convincing argument.
Thank you Tracy & Kris for letting me nominate…um…you!
You are very welcome, Orannia. We live to be accommodating. 🙂
