It’s here. Well, almost here. Book Blogger Appreciation Week will run the week of September 14 -18 this year. Started by Amy Riley of My Friend Amy, BBAW recognizes 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 week spotlights and celebrates the work of active book bloggers through guest posts, awards, giveaways, and community activities.
Last year over 400 blogs came together to celebrate the art of book blogging during the first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I was late in finding out about it and didn’t get registered until the last day (I think). This year, I’ve already registered Straight From Hel. It’s a fun way to pay homage to blogs talking about books and the hard work that goes into those blogs - as well as a spectacular way to meet lots of bloggers, visit their blogs and connect readers to writers.
There will also be tons of giveaways, plus awards for the best participating blogs. During that week, there will be daily blogging themes. It’s a lot of work for Amy, of course, but also for all the participating blogs. But it’s a labor of love.
You can nominate your favorite book blogs until August 15. There’s a long list of categories. After nominations close, the nominated blogs are shortlisted and voting begins in September. You nominate by URL, not blog name. For example, should you decide to nominate Straight From Hel (no pressure), you would copy and paste the link into the box - http://straightfromhel.blogspot.com - that’s just an example, of course. ;-)
