Yesterday I found out through Tia’s blog, Fantasy Debut, about the upcoming Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Following the link in Tia’s post I discovered a very interesting event, already at its second edition, a week dedicated to the blogs about books. The event will include also the BBAW Awards (I already voted for some of the blogs I love) and Giveaways. With the mention that I just signed up for the Book Blogger Appreciation Week, here is the event presentation quoted from its blog:
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!
