BBAW – Day 5: The End
September 14, 2012 20 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 : Saying Goodbye for Another Year
BBAW says: “I don’t know about you but I feel like BBAW flew by this year. I hope you were refreshed and reminded of why you love doing what you do!
And that’s what today’s topic is…what did you get out of this week? What will you take with you in the future? I liken it to the end of camp when you say goodbye and exchange addresses and promise to stay in touch!.”
Go to the BBAW hosting site to find links to other blogs taking part in the BBAW. These will also talk about this topic today!
This is the last day of BBAW and it’s time to wrap up and see what the event was like for me:
As always with events like this, I visited fewer blogs than I was planning to. But even so, I met a lot of great bloggers and added some new blogs to my reader (or subscribed by email).
I know I have some new followers too, and I just want to say: welcome!
I got to know some book bloggers a bit more, during Day 2 (Interviews) and it’s always so nice to find out about their hobbies, their reading habits, and their to-read piles.
I also added some new books to my wishlist because of Day 4 (A Book I Love). I’ll have to live to at least 253 (that’s well into the 23rd Century) to read all the books on my wishlist, but hey who knows, it may just happen with all the modern technology.
I was reminded yet again that there is this great book blogging community around the internet, and I was also reminded of its size: it’s so much bigger than I can possibly imagine! And all these people share a love for books. And so, 65-year olds talk with 17 year olds about great books, people in New Zealand talk with people in Mexico about their favorite books, it’s one big family and I’m glad to be part of it.
See you all on the blog or at the next blogging event!
How about you?
