BBAW – Day 1: Appreciate
September 10, 2012 56 Comments
I’m participating in the Book Blogger Appreciation Week, which is an event 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.
The blog post for today is about : Appreciating other bloggers
BBAW says: “Appreciation! There are no awards this year, but it can still be hard to navigate the huge universe of book blogging. Share with your readers some of the blogs you enjoy reading daily and why.”
Go to the BBAW hosting site to find links to other blogs taking part in the BBAW. These will also discuss the same topic today!
I find this SO difficult! I don’t really want to single out certain bloggers and not mention others. But I will give you just five of my favorite ones and you can be sure there are many more that I check regularly and enjoy reading. Go on and have a look for yourself!
Jackie of Farm Lane Books. Jackie keeps me up to date with new UK books. She often reads books from award shortlists, and inspires me to read some of those books too (I normally say “humbug” to awards lists). Our reading taste is quite similar.
Adam of Roof Beam Reader. Adam is inspires me to read the classics (which I do, sometimes) and he often reviews interesting books that I hadn’t heard of. Furthermore, he’s a generous and active blogger with a huge following.
Leslie of Under My Apple Tree. Besides books, Leslie has a love of birding and regularly shares pictures and information about the birds she discovers in her garden or out and about. She often reviews books that end up on my wishlist, too!
Shelleyrae of Book’d Out. I like following Shelleyrae because she’s such a lovely person! Our book tastes overlap only sometimes, but I’m always curious to see what she thinks of books that I’ve also read. She’s a great book ambassador in her community.
Suzanne of Bibliosue. Suzanne gets her hands on quirky books sometimes and the way she writes about them, I just have to get my hands on them. She also writes about her life, in an interesting, recognisable way.
Do you read these blogs too?
