Hey, it’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I unfortunately do not have time to write a long post today, but today’s invited topic is:
For those of you who participated in BBAW last year, what’s a great new book blog you’ve discovered since last year’s BBAW?
For those you new to BBAW, what was the first book blog you discovered?
As I started blogging in November 2009, I am new to BBAW. I actually started reading book blogs regularly as a result of the BBAW 2009 awards, which had been spotlighted in an American Library Association newsletter. I started subscribing to some of the award nominees and winners, including A Striped Armchair, books i done read, Sophisticated Dorkiness, among others. I see other winners/nominees from last year whose blogs I currently subscribe to, but I’m not 100% sure I subscribed to them right after reading about the award winners.
Probably Eva’s blog, A Striped Armchair, did the most to compel me to start blogging myself. I love her Library Loot vlogs! Additionally, the blogrolls of various bloggers led me on a merry blogroll click-fest throughout the book blogosphere to find other new blogs. The sense of community was strong and that was the main reason I decided to start blogging myself.
