Life is Better When You Share It

To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with.
― Mark Twain


Laughter, books, smiles, knowledge–these are just some of the things that have the potential to take on a whole new level of awesomeness when you get to share them.

That’s what these amazing friends did when they shared their awards with me:

Amanda over at BornBookish.  She is a college student sharing breathtaking book covers and reviews.  Plus she has the scoop on intriguing words like xanthophobia on Word Lover Wednesdays.

Sophia Chang says she’s Tiger mom tested and approved–and I believe it since she’s a YA writer who has found success in acting, modeling, and singing (and graduating from Harvard), but underneath all of that is a sparkly, kind heart.

Tameri Etherton is a writer who says she wishes she was born a fairie princess.  Well, if sweet and generous are the criteria, then she already is one!

The first words that come to mind when I hear Prudence MacLeod‘s name?  Strength of spirit!  Read her posts over at her Valkyrie Rising blog and you will think so too.

Debra Kristi says she is just a girl with a story or two to tell, but take the time to read one of her Immortal Monday posts and you will see the amount of time she puts into entertaining and informing–and all with a smile.

Stop by their blogs and say Hi!


If YOU have something to share, please tell us in the comments!

Got a book or a blog you want to talk about?  Or maybe someone did something awesome for you that you want to share?

I would love to hear it.

Oh and please stop by Catherine Johnson‘s site on Tuesday–she has a special Valentine’s surprise to reveal tomorrow!

Have a happy one!

        Coleen this is seriously one of the nicest things people have said about me all year.
