Nancy Drew Week

I am discovering so many great new book blogs through Book Blogger Appreciation Week registration. (and I bet some of you haven't known that I've been reading your blog for months!)

I'm slowly working on my spreadsheet, and let me tell you...you guys are awesome. Seriously, your emails to register were very kind and the level of support for this idea has far exceeded my expectations. Many thanks to all who helped spread the word. I think we'll have a really fun week.

Nominations for the awards may be delayed to this weekend or early next week, because it's all taking me a little longer than I expected. But who knows, I may get the ball rolling sooner than that. ;)

Anyway, one of the awesome new things I discovered was Nancy Drew week, which is going on RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND!!! That's right, if you head over to The Thrillionth Page, you can read all the awesome reflections and posts.

When I was little I used to play Nancy Drew. I always got to be Nancy, and I made my friends be Bess and George. I was bossy like that, and besides, I doubt they read the books as devotedly as I did. You see, books have always been there, always just a really huge part of who I am, and that's why things like LibraryThing and book blogs thrill me to no end.

One more thing...while we've had about 175 bloggers register for BBAW, we've only had a few readers. Readers, get in on the fun! Just dash off an email to bookbloggerappreciationweekATgmailDOTcom This week is for you, too. :)

I loved the Nancy Drew books as a kid (still love them now). I spent many summers holed up in the library, sprawled out on the floor with one of those books in front of me. I later enjoyed The Hardy Boys when I ran out of Nancy books. This will date me, but when I read the books..they actually had a Nancy Drew series on TV with Pamela Sue Martin and the Hardy Boys were Shawn Cassidy and Parker Stevenson. LOL.

Get the nominations started when you can. We are patient bloggers. LOL I loved Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I read my copies over and over...and when we had those book catalogs from school, those are the books I always ordered.

Hey! I always get to be Nancy, so you'd better watch out! I didn't know about this, either, but I just got my niece hooked on Nancy, so it's timely in our house, too!
