BBAW: highlighting our favorite blogs

Monday, September 14, 2009


Happy BBAW Week to my fellow book bloggers!!

So today is the day to thank and spotlight our favorite bloggers who did not make the short list. Honestly? I really have way too many favorites to be able to list them all. And then I would feel bad if I accidentally forgot to include anyone. So what I'm going to do is highlight a couple categories of bloggers.

First I want to spotlight my PBS swapper friends. I joined paperbackswap.com in May of 2007 and became addicted to the site!
The funnest part about the site was the swap games. That is where I met all of the following book bloggers. I don't play in the games as much anymore so I'm glad to have another place to keep up with their reads!

Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books
Rhonda from Rhonda's Corner of the World
Lori from Lori's Reading Corner
Melissa from Shhh I'm Reading
Melissa from Coffee, Books, and Laundry


Next I'd like to spotlight some of my favorite book bloggers whom I've met just through book blogging. These are people who I feel like I converse with somewhat regularly or I just am at their blog so often I feel like I am getting to know them, lol! Some of these bloggers are newer than the others but they are all very friendly. This is one of my criteria for favorite blogs! And while I haven't conversed as much with some of them, their blogs are still very intriguing!

Linda Ellen at Bambi Reads
Christy at Christy's Book Blog
Cynthia at Cynthia's Bookshelf
April at Good Books and Good Wine
Jennifer at Jennifer Justice Reads
Jenn-ay at My Tea Time is Book Time
Sara at My Life is an Effing Fairy Tale
Karoline at Okbo Lover
Andreea at Passionate Booklover
Michelle at Red Headed Book Child
Peter at Kyusi Reader
Natalie at The Book Inn
Trisha at Eclectic/Eccentric
Lezlie at Books 'n Border Collies


These next two I decided to separate into their own category,
though they are also super friendly and great bloggers, because of the greatness I think they signify. They are younger bloggers and they are great role models for teens in terms of reading for pleasure and they are great writers as well. I am so impressed with their love for books at an age when so many don't seem to have any interest.

Danielle at Opinionated? Me?
Alyssa, Jake, Gregory, and Anna at Teens Read & Write

It's very possible I've missed some other favorites. (I'm writing this late and am all of a sudden so tired). Also keep in mind these are the ones who are not shortlisted... I have about 3 more favorites that made it to the short lists!! I want to send a thank you though to all of these bloggers I listed especially for being so friendly and making the blogging process fun (and informative) for me!

Thanks for the shout-out Jenny! And I love that you highlighted Danielle and Teens Read & Write - I'm already sending an email to my cousin (a 15 year old reader).

hi,
Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

I have added you to my blogger roll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.

Thank you so much for the mention. I adore reading your blog and friendliness is definitely important and it comes out in yours as well.

I am having so much fun doing this and I love the people that I get to "meet".

Hope you have a great day!

Michelle

Thank you for being friendly and supportive. I remember when I started my blog being worried that other bloggers wouldn't like me or what I had to say and that no one would ever read my blog - you and many others in this wonderful community have been so kind and supportive. Thank you!

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

Of course I read our fellow PBSers, but I'll have to check out some of your other faves!
