I’m really excited about this year’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) because … well, this year I actually understand what’s going on. Last year’s event happened a month after I started writing The Betty and Boo Chronicles, so BBAW felt like being at a very fun party without knowing anyone there or what language they were speaking.
Oh … maybe you’re like me, back then, wondering what Book Blogger Appreciation Week is? Read on …
Thanks to the magnificent Amy, the 2nd annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) will be taking place in September. What is BBAW, you ask? Well, read on for all the details…
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 recognizing 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: Over 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. Amy, the founder of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, loves this community of bloggers and wants to shower appreciation on you!
