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!
