BBAW Registration Post


It's almost that time of year again! Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be celebrated September 13 -17. If you haven't participated in this event in the past, it is not be missed. There are blogger interviews, daily memes, and awards. In 2009, I was lucky enough to interview the amazing Nymeth from Things Mean Alot - I think my blog almost crashed from all the hits! You are introduced to so many wonderful book blogs, I think my blogroll doubled after last year! My only regret is that during BBAW in 2009, I was on vacation, and had to sneak in my time on the computer. I'm going to make sure I'm home this year!

This year, instead of bloggers nominating each other for various award categories, we nominate ourselves. I have to admit, I am extremely uncomfortable with this. I honestly don't view myself to be in the same league as some of the blogs I follow, but I also think it would be a shame not to participate. So what the hey. Please accept my humble offerings. Here are the categories I am entering:

Best Audiobook Blog

The Girl That Played With Fire - Stieg Larsson (ISBN #9780307269980)
Sandy's Audies

Best Eclectic Blog

YA: The Heart is Not a Size - Beth Kephart (ISBN #9780061470486)
Graphic Novel: Fun Home - Alison Bechdel (ISBN #9780618477944)
Biography: Christian Encoungers: Jane Austen - Peter Leithart (ISBN #9781595553027)
Literary/Movie: Fingersmith - Sarah Waters (ISBN #9781573229722)

We all have to get over our shyness about nominating ourselves. That is so hard to do. I have the same issues with it that you do.

I'm entering the eclectic blog category, too. (whisper) I'm using one of our Blindness posts as an entry. I thought they were wonderful. I'll mention that part of that nomination should go your way. I plan on posting my list later this week.

Best of luck!

I love coming to your blog so good for you for entering! I've got so many friends I'm going to be cheering for :)

I'm probably going to be on vacation during BBAW so I am going to miss out on the fun of all the posts but I guess I'll just have a lot of great reading to catch up on when I return.

Good Luck!

I will vote for you Sandy. :) I didn't quite understand the rules of this year's contest, and also I have the issue of shyness. I most likely won't enter but would visit all the blogs.

The way they explained it, it doesn't seem as bad to nominate yourself. And I think your choice of audiobook blog is perfection! : )

Best of luck!

Good for you! You always have my support. I have put off doing this for some of the reasons you mention. Just cannot get behind nominating myself. Maybe I will just nominate myself in the category I was shortlisted for last year? Hmm. Think I still have a few days. Nothing like procrastinating.

Amy said...

yay Sandy! :)

Darlene said...

Good luck Sandy! You definitely have my vote.
