Happy Book Blogger Appreciation Week!


So for the next five days, our regularly scheduled Boston Bibliophile programming will be put on hold as I take part for the first time in Book Blogger Appreciation Week, a week when book bloggers from all over the world take some time to show our admiration for each other.

The festivities include coordinated blog posts where folks write about similar topics each day. Today's topic is the personal blog short list- in other words, it's an opportunity to talk about our favorite blogs that didn't make the BBAW official shortlists. A tall order, since there are so many excellent blogs, and so many of my favorites were represented among those nominated for awards.

Here are some of my favorites:
And there are more. Of course there are more. How could there not be more? Just look at my blogroll. I don't read every blog every day but I do try to check in with them when I can- and I do check in with all of them from time to time. But yeah. Lots of awesome blogs and bloggers out there.

Today is going to be bad for my Google Reader, isn't it? So many new blogs to check out. Not to mention familiar ones that are always fun to visit again. :-)

Thanks so much for creating this list. I am new to reviewing books on-line, and welcome the opportunity to see what others are writing. And since I am a librarian at a K-8 Jewish Day School, I especially appreciate the links to Jewish book blogs (and I appreciate your blog as well).

My reviews can be read at www.bookfrontiers.com

Thanks again for the great list!

You've spotlighted some great blogs here. Some of them I know but the ones I don't I am going to look at more closely now.

Thanks for the shout out, Marie! I strive to be half as insightful and a pleasure to read as your blog - I think I'm succesful one-twentieth of the time.
