The Reading Life receives The Zombie Chicken Award Sunday Salon

I am proud and very happy to announce that my blog has been awarded the Zombie Chicken award
by Suko of Suko's Notebook.

Here are the officials rules governing  the award:

"The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken-- excellence, grace, and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all."

I would give The Zombie Chicken award to

DS of Third Story Window

Westcobich of Oh! Books...Paper...Real Life

Mark of Absorbed in Words

Jessica of A Book Lover's Diary

Juliet of Crafty Green Poet

I subscribe to all these blogs in either Bloglines or Google Reader.   I read every thing they post.
To me that is really the most sincere compliment I can pay to a fellow blogger.

Thanks again Suko
