Book Blogger Appreciation Week

Well BBAW is gearing up again! If you know know what it is, this is what it says in the about page on the Book Blogger Appreciation Week website:

Book Blogger Appreciation was started by Amy Riley of My Friend Amy in an effort to recognize the hard work and contribution of book bloggers to the promotion and preservation of a literate culture actively engaged in discussing books, authors, and a lifestyle of reading.

The first Book Blogger Appreciation was observed in the fall of 2008 and occurs every September. The week spotlights and celebrates the work of active book bloggers through guest posts, awards, giveaways, and community activities. Book Bloggers are encouraged to register their participation for inclusion in a database of book bloggers.

They changed the nomination process this year so that blogs can nominate themselves for awards. It feels rather presumptuous to enter myself for anything, but after mulling it over for a while, I think it would be fun.  It would be nice to find some new blogs and be found by others.

I’m registering and also nominating this blog for best SF blog. Since janicu’s book blog is mirrored in three different platforms (wordpress, livejournal and vox), I’m just linking to the wordpress posts for the SF category.

    • Thank you! Good luck to you too (I like your reviews – I kinda lurk – always say so much yet are perfectly concise). I don’t think I’ll win, but what the hey, may as well join in and have fun! 🙂

  1. Good luck 🙂

    It did feel like that for me, I did think about since it was the last day today but since I have a giveaway and interview and didn’t want 2 posts. Well there is always next year

    • You could always just register so you can join in on the judging, have your blog in the directory, but not nominate your blog. Then you don’t need to post anything…
