September 14 – 18 is the second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Here is the rundown on this celebration from the Book Blogger Appreciation Week site:
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 recogonizing 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 Here 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. I, Amy, the founder of Book Blogger Appreciation Week love this community of bloggers and want to shower my appreciation on you!
Book bloggers can register to be included in the database of book bloggers and for a chance at winning the grand prize. To nominate book bloggers for awards in various categories (there are many – I just filled it out and it was very hard to choose), go to the Book Blogger Appreciation Week awards page sometime between now and the end of August 15. Also, you can follow Book Blogger Appreciation Week on Twitter.
