First things first: I want to thank Amy from What Amy Read Next for nominating No Friend As Loyal for the Liebster blogging award!!  I am floored by the response my little blog has gotten so far, and I’m so honoured by this recognition.  I’m currently working on my answers to Amy’s great questions, and I’m trying to think up some good ones for my nominees.  Hopefully it will all be ready for posting by the weekend!
