Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010 - Intent to Register






I recently discovered the Book Blogger Appreciation group which works to "recognize the hard work and contribution of book bloggers". Even more, the group also sponsors a Book Blogger Appreciation Week to recognize the contributions of book bloggers everywhere.

I'm by no means a full-time book blogger, but I comment about enough books here that I wanted to participate in their event. I also like the intent of the Book Blogger Appreciate group, and want to do my small part in publicizing their activity.

For the BBAW awards, there are several niche categories you may pick from to enroll your blog. After traversing the categories and looking at what I posted this past year, I decided to select the Best Nonfiction Book Blog category and have selected the following as representative review posts:

Superbug: The Fatal Menace of MRSA by Maryn McKenna (Book Review)
Shop Class as Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford (Book Review)
Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn (Book Review)
Less by Marc Lesser (Book Review)
Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott (Book Review)


Bloggers are also invited to register in a featured category, and I selected Best Written Book Blog. Below are my selections:

Superbug: The Fatal Menace of MRSA by Maryn McKenna (Book Review)
10 Reasons Why Memorial Day Is the Best Holiday
25 Days of Christmas (25 post blog series)
Shop Class as Soulcraft by Matthew B. Crawford (Book Review)
TiMER (Movie Review)

  1. Good luck. Is there any way we can vote for you?

  2. Travis,

    Thank you - I appreciate that. I don't believe there's open voting, although anyone can sign up and panel vote through the Blogger Appreciation group's site.

    No worries, though. My interest is foremost to participate and help publicize the event. From what I've seen, some of the other book bloggers are crazy prolific and it will likely be hard to compete against them based on my more modest and succinct posting.
