Book Blogger Appreciation Week Meme

You can find this meme and more links to answers here.

1) What has been one of the highlights of blogging for you?

One of the many highlights of blogging was having my review of The City and The City excerpted by the presenter at a reading by author China Mieville and then getting him to sign my book to me via the blog:

Another was the time I went to a library conference and a library marketer I email occasionally said she'd read my blog- the first time someone outside my immediate acquaintance had mentioned it to me out of the blue.

2) What blogger has helped you out with your blog by answering questions, linking to you, or inspiring you?

That would be Sandra of Fresh Ink Books, who writes beautiful reviews of literary fiction and has absolutely fantastic taste.

3) What one question do you have about BBAW that someone who participated last year could answer?

A question I have about BBAW- how is the "short list" of nominated blogs for the various awards selected from the myriad of entries?
