It's Getting Closer: Sept 14-18!

Announcing the Second Annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week September 14-18, 2009

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!

If you would like to be a part of this week - please visit the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog for all the info!

I didn't participate last year - as I have only been blogging 1 year and 9 days as of today (I know - I missed my anniversary!) There is currently a meme going on for past participants and newbies - so here are my newbie questions!

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
Meeting a ton of people who share my love of books and discovering new books and authors.

2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
J.Kaye of J.Kaye's book blog - Her's was the first blog I remember following and she was a wealth of information. I think she gave me my first "award" also!

3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer? I have no idea - I will probably have more questions after I have been through one!

Book Blogger Appreciation Week sounds interesting. I'm not sure my blog would count, but I'll wander over there anyway. Thanks.
