Book Blogger Appreciation Week Contests, Giveaways & Thoughts…
This week September 14 – 18 is Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW). All over the blogsphere there are contests, giveaways, interviews and blog partying happening in honor of BBAW. I have been attempting for the past day or so to compile a good list of these happenings to share with everyone. Then I discovered via Kindling Romance that there is a pretty comprehensive list that already exists on the Official BBAW site, click here to find the list of giveaways.
All the contests and giveaways are great but to me one of the best parts of BBAW is the introductions to so many great blogs that I might never have found on my own. Through these blogs I am finding new-to-me authors and adding to my TBR list. Then when I read the books I found out about from these great blogs I will be posting reviews here and then you may find some new-to-you authors and new characters to fall in love with. In the end more people will end up buying books and helping the authors who work so hard (for so little) to continue being able to write the books we want to read & blog about. BBAW has something for all of us – readers, bloggers, authors and even publishers. So as when you pop over to one of the 113 or so listed blogs don’t just enter the contests/giveaways and then move onto the next link. Take your time to browse the blog, read some reviews and check out some authors. You might just find something you didn’t even know you were looking for.
Here are a few of my favorite book blogs: (in no particular order)
