Book Blogger Appreciation Week the Second is a Go!

Bokok Blogger Appreciation Week
I didn't know if we would make it, but we did! The Book Blogger Appreciation Week blog is live, and taking registrations. And once everything is tweaked, we'll be taking nominations, too!

Book Blogger Appreciation Week (from here on out to be known as BBAW) was started last year as an effort to appreciate the fabulous community of hard working bloggers (who love books as much as I do!) that I adore. It's really just a week to celebrate our very diverse and exciting community and get to know each other even better.

This year, BBAW has its own blog. This will hopefully make things easier to follow, no more mass emails from me! But, of course, if you want the behind the scenes scoop on how things are progressing, this is the place to be. ;) Please be patient with us as we get the blog fully functional as well.

BBAW season means three things to me: 1) No Sleep 2) Less Reading 3) Lots and lots and lots of fun!

I hope you'll join in! Read all the details about BBAW 09.

Thanks Amy!

very exciting!! Last year was so much fun! The awards, the directed essays, the interviews, the giveaways, the spreading the love of reading ... Heading over to the BBAW 09 site now :)

Elizabeth said...

Hi, Amy! I'm excited for the 2nd BBAW, but I actually stopped by to recommend a TV show to you. On Sci-Fi Tuesday nights is Warehouse 13. Since you are a big Supernatural fan, I thought you might like to try it out. BTW, I'm almost done with Season 1 of Supernatural and still can't decide if I'm a Dean or Sam girl.

What a fabulous idea! Cannot wait to check it out.

Melody said...

Beth Kephart said...

Okay. But you better sleep. Some.

Tif said...

Thank you so much for doing this!! I'm so excited to experience it for the first time this year!! :)

Trish said...

Sweet--so excited about this. I'm going to try and publish a post tomorrow morning, but we'll see how that goes (if I can get my butt out of bed early, that is). Thanks so much for all of your hard work, Amy. We all really appreciate it.

Sheila DeChantal said...

Amy I am considering running an Appreciation contest during the BBAW. Still tweaking that in my head. If you have any ideas as I was not around last year to see how this all lays out, I would be happy to hear your suggestions to make it tie in well.

Thanks for doing this! I cant even imagine the amount of work to pull this off!

Please do know if you need any kind of help.

Anna said...

Please let me know if there's anything specific you'd like me to do to help. I had a blast last year, and I'm looking forward to this year's bash.

Thanks for all your work organizing this. I missed most of it last year because Hurricane Ike knocked out our power, so I'm hoping for better weather this September!

bkclubcare said...

You rock!

damnedconjuror said...

This sounds great; I'll be participating in the events.

Rebecca :) said...

I am so excited for BBAW, Amy! This is my first year blogging, you know, and I have heard so much about last year's BBAW. I went to the site and registered and then took a look at the awards. Oh my! So many blogs to choose from, right? But luckily a lot of awards, too. It will be difficult to choose just one for each category! I think a couple of my faves fall under one category at first glance. I think I will print out the form and fill it out as I go through the blogs in the next couple of weeks. Great, great idea. Oh, and I put the button up on my blog, too!

Memory said...

You've done such a great job with this! I'm really excited for this year's BBAW; I'd just started blogging during last year's events, so I didn't participate very much. I'm looking forward to combing through my feed reader and figuring out what I'd like to nominate. :)

Debbie's World of Books said...

Tanks so much for organizing this and for making me feel so welcomed in the book blogging community!

Jenny Girl said...

Girl How DO you do it? I wasn't around last year, so I'll have to go check this out.
I know quite a few blogs that should be nominated.

Park Avenue Princess said...

YAY Amy!! I am SO excited !! Thank you SO much for helping me filling in this event.

xoxo Amy (Park-Avenue Princess)

What an amazing idea. I'm all registered, and thank you so much for setting this up. Should be so fun!

Jenners said...

I wasn't blogging last year at this time but I think this is a great idea and I look forward to participating this year. Thanks for all your hard work.

Looking forward to it, I will post links to BBAW on my Sunday Salon post. I have registered also, and it is my first time too.

Hi, Amy! My first time on your blog. And it's great to know you're hosting a cool event like BBAW. I'm so excited to participate and get to know more fabulous book bloggers! Already blogged about this:

My blog's not strictly book blogging. It's more like a hodgepodge of different interests. But I'm hoping I'd be qualified to join. ^_^
