The second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week is set for September 14-18. The brainchild of My Friend Amy, BBAW is “A week where we come together, celebrate the contribution and hard work of book bloggers in promoting a culture of literacy, connecting readers to books and authors, and recognizing the best among us with the Second Annual BBAW Awards. There will be special guest posts, daily blogging themes, and giveaways.”
There’s still time to register, as well as to nominate your favorite book blogs in a myriad of categories — nominations close August 15.
Amy posted a little meme to help people learn about BBAW:
1) What was the highlight (something that happened, a post, an activity, etc.) of BBAW for you last year?
2) What is one new blog you discovered during BBAW last year?
3) What tips would you share to help others get the most out of their BBAW experience?
It’s very hard for me to pick one highlight; last year’s BBAW was a very fun and exciting time. The sheer volume of book bloggers was eye-opening and surprising to me. It was also pretty fun when some of the blogs I knew won in their categories.
I’m having a hard time remembering what blogs I discovered when. I think I found Devourer of Books during last year’s BBAW, though.
Last year, I decided to join in at the very last minute; this made it not as good for me as it could have been. My advice to you: Register now! Go read the nominations list now (the list is long!), so you can start thinking about which blogs to nominate and still make some nominations before the deadline. Join in, participate, have fun!
