Today is the first day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Many blogs have been nominated, votes were cast and now the winners will be announced during the Awards Presentations. There are many exciting things going on this week, including the Book Blog Readers Contest and lots of BBAW giveaways. Throughout the week there will also be some activities and assignments for BBAW participants to take part in and blog about.
To get us started...you may have noticed that the blogs you love best and appreciate didn't make the list of nominations! So today is your chance to thank them. Write a post thanking or highlighting the book blogs you love to read (be sure to link to them!)
Naida’s blog The Bookworm is one of my favourite blogs. Her book reviews are always a pleasure to read. Naida also participates in the Weekly Geeks and her entries are interesting and fun. Take a peek at her blog and make sure you visit her Etsy shop Naida’s Crochet, where you can find beautiful hand-made scarves, hats and more. My personal favourite is Lucius the Sock Monkey!
Icedream at Reading In Appalachia is another blogger who gives terrific opinions and insights into her reading. Just try not to get lost daydreaming while looking at her beautiful blog header! Icedream is also a regular contributor to the Tuesday Thingers and her answers are always interesting. Icedream has terrific giveaways, an eclectic taste in books and I love reading the wonderful comments she leaves on my blog.
Allesandra can be found at Out Of The Blue, where you can find lots of entertaining thoughts about books and reading. Something I discovered at Allesandra’s website that was extremely interesting to me is her posts about languages and the ways we learn them. She is also a contributor to 3 other book related blogs: Read The Nobels, I Heard It Through The Grapevine and YA Romance Challenge.
Maree’s book blog Just Add Books (what a fantastic title eh?) is another favourite of mine. Just last week Maree geeked it up with me and we interviewed one another about a books (Space and The Gargoyle) Maree gave me some terrific questions and answers! She is a fantastic reviewer, whose blog is so much fun to read. And who can forget about Merlin?!?
Also for this weeks geekery Maree is treating us to a quote a day about cats, with some utterly adorable pictures to accompany them. (If I end up at the SPCA this week I blame Maree lol)
