Book Blogger Appreciation Week

From the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Website:

Announcing the Second Annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week September 14-18, 2009

Last year over 400 blogs came together to celebrate the art of book blogging during the first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I am so pleased to announce that the second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be taking place September 14-18.

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!

Please help us spread the word about Book Blogger Appreciation Week by posting about it on your blog, stumbling this post, twittering about it, and telling everyone you know that it’s time to have a party and celebrate book bloggers!

I'm joining in this year and you should join in too!

But wait!! We don’t want those of you who didn’t participate to feel left out, so if you didn’t participate last year, how about these questions?

They asked some questions on the website and here are my answers - I'm a newbie to the week:

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?
Contact with wonderful authors and publicists, comments from readers, knowing there are so many others out there that have a passion for reading makes me feel great!

2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?
J Kaye's Book Blog is one of the ones who has inspired me. Also Books and Needlepoint and all my regular commenters.

3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?
What can I do as a new blogger to help make the week successful?

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for including me in your answer! It is funny because I put J.Kaye in my answer for that one also! So I am so very flattered to have you include me there!

J. Kaye said...

LOLOLOL @ Kristi! Thank you both for your kind words. So nice to hear, especially during an insane morning like this one.

I've been reading these meme's and J. Kaye has been in a lot of the answers.

On a unrelated note. I clicked on your Twitter button to make sure I followed you (I can't always remember who I follow and who I don't) and it's not set up to go to your profile. Thought I would let you know.
