After my review of the glorious Otto the Book Bear, you’ll know where I stand on threatened library closures. If you have similar feelings about how valuable your local library is, how libraries as a whole are something to be valued and cherished, you may like to sign this petition in support of public libraries.
In other news… if you’re a fan of book blogs you might like to know about Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW). I’m not a huge fan of the title, but last year I did take part in BBAW and it was a fantastic way of finding new book blogs. Two blogs that I’ve come to really enjoy over the last year are ones I read for the first time as part of BBAW: Iris on Books and Presenting Lenore.
It’s now time to nominate your favourite book blogs for this year’s BBAW. You’ve only got until August 13th to nominate and you can nominate in as many or as few categories as you like once you’ve registered.
You can register (and then nominate) here: http://bookbloggerappreciationweek.com/2011/07/book-blogger-appreciation-week-2011-registration-is-now-open/
You can read about the different categories open for nominations here: http://bookbloggerappreciationweek.com/2011/07/the-2011-bbaw-awards-categories/
The list looks daunting but you don’t have to nominate in all categories – in fact you could nominate in just one category 🙂
You don’t have to be a book blogger to nominate (though you do need either a google account or twitter account to register). If you are a book blogger you cannot nominate yourself in any category.
I’ve already submitted my nominations, I hope you submit yours too!
