One Lovely Blog Award & Grammar Bit #3.

Tina, from Book Couture, passed along the One Lovely Blog Award to my blog. So with this, I send her many, many thanks. And also, I hope, more readers. Her blog’s rather new, but it’s fabulous – check it out!

Here’s how it works:

1. Accept the award, then post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know that they have been chosen for this award.


I’m going to hope there’s no repeats listed here, but carefully scanning each blog to see if you’ve previously won the award makes me a little cross-eyed. Some of them are old finds, some new finds. Either way – repeats or no repeats, new or old – these blogs deserve the award!

1. writer, reader, dreamer.
2. would you like some tea?
3. Trisha’s Book Blog.
4. A Tapestry of Words.
5. Bookspeak.
6. Emilie’s Book World.
7. Oh My Books!
8. Pages of my Life.
9. Planet Print.
10. The Paperback Princess.
11. Une Parole.
12. Bibliophilic Monologues.
13. Down the Rabbit Hole.
14. The Book Girl.


And yes, another Grammar Bit!

Lie or Lay?

Lie is to recline.

EX. I lie on the ground.

Lay is to place or put.
An object must always follow lay because it is a transitive verb (requires both a subject and one or more objects).

EX. I lay my book on the coffee table.


  1. awwww.. thanks so much for the award.. That is too sweet!

  2. Oh thank you!! :D I really appreciate you passing the award off to me. Thank you.

    I have SO many problems with lay/lie, really. It's ridiculous.

    Also, in reply to your comment on my blog -- I know that this new series by Riordan is set in the same world as Percy but I don't know how much Percy's series is going to be an influence... I'd still recommend reading his books first, ha!

  3. I know I already commented back on your comment at my blog, but I wanted to say thank you again for this award. :)

  4. Aw. You're all welcome and very deserving of it. :]

  5. Oh thank you! As for the grammar bit, misuse of lie/lay drives me nuts. Also when people misspell weird (wierd).

  6. Thank you so much for the award! It means a lot! :)

  7. Thank you for passing the award to me! :)

    For the grammar thing, would it be acceptable to say "I lay down"? What is the right way of saying that someone was lying down - I always get confused with that!

  8. You're welcome!

    And you would say "I lie down." Unless, of course, you're talking about an object; then it would be, "I lay down the book." Or whatever object you choose to insert after "I lay down."

    The lie forms are lie, lying, lay, (have) lain.
    The lay forms are lay, laying, laid, (have) laid.

    I've always been confused by them, too. They all sound the same!

  9. Thanks so much! That's cleared it up for me :P.

  10. Question: What is "laid", then? I have some issues with this...

  11. Nevermind you answered it. That'll teach me to post new comments without reading the old ones first. -_-;;;;

  12. Hey, congrats on your award and thanks so much for passing it on to me! Don't worry, it isn't a repeat :D

  13. Thanks a lot for the award! You're too sweet. Also, the grammar bit is a really cute idea!

  14. That was so incredibly sweet of you! I send you the same wishes too!


  15. I just wanted you to know, I love your grammar bits! they are little fortune cookie messages, only far more useful. :)
