AR AWARDS: Proximidade! :) Thank you.

This blog invests and believes in the Proximity - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award.

What a lovely award. This time I have LadyBug to thank for her kindness. Once again, this award belongs to all of us here at AR -- all reviewers, staff working behind the scenes and our readers who keep coming back. Thanks!

1. Debbie @ Debbie's World of Books
