MOTM August 2018: AmySmiles

Post by bookowlie » 30 Jul 2018, 11:28

It’s time to pass the baton to the August Member of the Month…AmySmiles! She has been an active participant on the site since joining in March 2018. AmySmiles has already written several insightful reviews; she also supports other reviewers with her frequent comments. She is an all-around positive force and is respectful when making suggestions about improving the site. What really makes AmySmiles shine is her continued willingness to answer questions and offer advice, particularly in the Review Team Support forum. Please join me in congratulating our newest Member of the Month, AmySmiles. We honor and appreciate you!

Wow, oh my goodness, this was quite a surprise this morning. Thank you all so much. I'm quite honored. I'll try to live up to the standards the other MOTMs have up held. You all are so wonderful. I'm glad to be a part of OBC. Thank you everyone!

It's a pleasure to see you as MOTM.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

Congratulations AmySmiles! This calls for an encore of the banana band and their dancing sidekicks. :)

It's customary to wear something on your head during the month of your reign. Since it's August, may I suggest a watermelon or crown of sunflowers? :)
