Book Bloggers Appreciation Week

Have you heard about Book Blogger Appreciation Week? Know what it is? The event 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 Week 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. You can vote on your favorite book blogs at the website until September 12th.

Serena at Saavy Verse & Wit has been collecting prize books from authors to give away to these hard-working bloggers, and I donated a copy of To Hell in a Handbasket. I hope everyone who loves books and reading and writing them will participate in the event and check out the blogs of some book bloggers you haven't visited before. Who knows? You might find a favorite reviewer to follow.
