My involvement in the book blogging world increased when I discovered the Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) awards last year. I don’t remember which specific blogs I discovered through the awards, but I know it was a great introduction to the book blogging community. A couple of months later and I became a book blogger myself. My first post was November 4, 2009.
Today is the last day to enter one’s blog for BBAW award consideration. I’d been hemming and hawing about whether to enter, and then the last week and half have been so busy, and the internet was down at home, that the deadline snuck up on me. So I decided today, why not?
I am entering my blog for two awards categories: Best Eclectic Book Blog and Best New Book Blog. The posts to be considered for each category are listed below.
Best Eclectic Book Blog
Swampwalker’s Journal: A Wetlands Year by David M. Carroll [review]
The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy [review]
Breath, Eyes, Memory by Edwidge Danticat [review]
Enna Burning by Shannon Hale [review]

Best New Book Blog

I’m looking forward to participating in this event and discovering new book bloggers!
