Wednesday, December 26, 2012 with 194 comments


So, I hadn't planned a hiatus from the blog for the holidays, but one was imposed on me by family and family obligations, so I missed out on doing my "best of 2012" lists this week.  But not to worry, I've still compiled  a list of favorites to subject you to...and I'm going to give one of them away to one lucky reader, thanks to this giveaway hop organized by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.  And here are the nominees:
