Amy at My Friend Amy has announced the preliminaries leading up to this year’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week which will be September 14-18. Please go check out the blog and if you have a book blog, register and join in the fun.
Here’s what the BBAW site says about this:
There is a long list of awards to be presented – the nominations are open now so head on over and nominate your favorites. I’m working on mine, but need to think about it for a few days. Nominations won’t close until August 15th, but there’s a long category list to consider so take a look soon.
Last year over 400 blogs came together to celebrate the art of book blogging during the first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I am so pleased to announce that the second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be taking place September 14-18.
WHO Anyone who blogs about books is invited to participate. In fact, we want everyone who blogs about books and reading to be a part of this week!
WHAT 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 recogonizing the best among us with the Second Annual BBAW Awards. There will be special guest posts, daily blogging themes, and giveaways.
WHEN September 14-18, 2009
WHERE Here at the new Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog! (Please note that this year there are three separate blogs and feeds—one for the main event, one for
giveaways, and one for awards.)
WHY Because books matter. In a world full of options, the people talking about books pour hard work, time, energy, and money into creating a community around the written word. I, Amy, the founder of Book Blogger Appreciation Week love this community of bloggers and want to shower my appreciation on you!
You don’t have to have a blog or register to submit nominations, so take a look at the nomination form and submit your favorites.
