How’s that for a title? It makes perfect sense to me. Actually, I couldn’t think of anything else. Anyway… Today is Day One of BBAW (Book Blogger Appreciation Week), the week we celebrate book bloggers and the work we do. I think we really need that this year. It’s been an altogether depressing state of affairs for bloggers lately.
If you don’t know what BBAW is about, well, here you go:
Book Blogger Appreciation was started by Amy Riley of My Friend Amy in an effort to recognize 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.
Today we were asked to highlight a few blogs that we visit everyday. I’ve been terrible at visiting lately and when I looked at my Google Reader, I saw that many book bloggers had either quit or moved on to other things. I decided to take another tack; I went to Twitter.
I spend too much time on Twitter but I also end up visiting people’s blogs through it more often than I do through Google Reader. Plus, I’ve had some interesting discussions this way. So, here are some of the blogs I follow:
- The Sleepless Reader (Alexandra)- She looking for a book to keep her awake at night. She also is a contributor (along with myself and others) to Project Gutenberg Project.
- The Worm Hole (Charlie)- Charlie is “a reader, a writer, a history geek, an amateur photographer, a musician, and a web designer.”
- Reading In Winter (Kristilyn)- Kristilyn is from Edmonton, Alberta, here in Canada! She’s not only a book blogger but a singer-songwriter.
- Julie P from Girls Just Reading- Julie is a contributor to Girls Just Reading. She reads Contemporary Fiction, Historical Fiction, Mysteries/Thrillers, & Women's Fiction.
So there you go! Just a few of the great book bloggers out there. Happy BBAW!
