Book Blogger Appreciation Week! Book Blogs I Love

It's here again folks, and though I almost missed it, I found out over the weekend that this is the week. I'll be participating kind of sporadically; I hadn't planned anything so I'm going to just kind of wing it.

Today's topic is other blogs we appreciate. BBAW isn't doing awards this year (wise decision in my opinion) so it's all about showing our appreciation for the blogs we love.

You only have to look at my sidebar to see just some of my favorite blogs and bloggers. Scrolling down the list this morning it's impossible for me to choose my top favorites so I'll just say, visit any of the blogs on my list and you can't go wrong.

There are blogs I read because their taste is similar to mine and I'll always find books to add to my TBR pile, like Nonsuch Book, A Guy's Moleskine Notebook and Dolce Bellezza;

there are blogs I read because their content is creative and original and push the boundaries of what a book blog can do, like Books and Bowel Movements and Enrique Freeque's Forum;

there are blogs I love because the bloggers are loyal, prolific commenters, like Raging Bibliomania and BermudaOnion;

bloggers who are good friends in real life, like Archimedes Forgets, A & A's Movie A DayLaura's Review Bookshelf, Care's Online Book Club, and more,

bloggers who bring sunshine into my day whenever I get to peek into their world, like You've Gotta Read This and Scobberlotch;

blogs whose topics are specialized and fascinating, like Reading Proust in Foxborough, ImageNations and Almost Insider,

blogs which emphasize diversity and global literature, like Amy Reads, Kinna Reads, and The Feminist Texican [Reads],

and all the other blogs I love for their passion for books, whether or not they read the things I do or comment all the time or post every day or once a month or hardly ever. Going over this list, I noticed I really need to update it with all the blogs I read all the time but haven't bookmarked. So many great blogs!
