I am joining an exciting event next month, and want to tell you all about it! I will participate in the second Book Blogger Appreciation week. If you love reading and blog about books, this is a great opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and win some fab prizes. Speaking of prizes, I am also donating a great book for a giveaway there: French Women for All Seasons by Mireille Guiliano. She is the author of the bestselling French Women Don't Get Fat . I greatly enjoyed both books - if you have not read them, you should!
So, about the event:
Last year over 400 blogs came together to celebrate the art of book blogging during the first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week! My Friend Amy is at it again. The second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be taking place September 14-18.
Here's the rundown straight from the official Book Blogger Appreciation Week 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.
