The 2013 Barney Awards

The time has come again for the most irrelevant awards in the blogosphere, The Barneys!  Twelve days of completely unasked for, completely unappreciated, coveted by absolutely no one awards in which Pauline and I go through the books we read and highlight a few that stand out.  Rather than the typical best of list we prefer to do it our own way.  Expect silliness.

You may laugh, you most certainly will cry (especially if you read my posts and care a lick about grammar), you will stay for the popcorn (bring your own popcorn).  If all goes right, you will have fun.

Starts tomorrow, then one a day from there.  Can’t wait that long?  Check out last year’s Barney Awards!

Enjoy!  Oh, and I will try to keep up with linking them below.
