What is it? "Book Blogger Appreciation was started by Amy Riley of My Friend Amy in an effort 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 first Book Blogger Appreciation was observed in the fall of 2008 and occurs every September. The week spotlights and celebrates the work of active book bloggers through guest posts, awards, giveaways, and community activities. Book Bloggers are encouraged to register their participation for inclusion in a database of book bloggers."
"This year marks the fifth Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I can hardly believe it, but I am so thankful to know that in five years of doing this book blogs haven’t gone away, but they’ve grown and become even more interesting, diverse, and meaningful. We have etched out a place on the landscape of literary discussion, and we are not going away!" - http://bookbloggerappreciationweek.com
There will be daily interviews, guest posts, in-depth profiles on bloggers, and interview swaps. The focus is on community and community building. So, come join the fun. Registration is now open. http://bookbloggerappreciationweek.com/register-for-bbaw-2012/
