During Book Blogger Appreciation Week, there will be fun events, introductions to bloggers you may have heard of or may be new to you, giveaways, and other activities. There also are awards for Best YA, Kidlit, Eclectic, etc.
For information about the event, please visit the blog. For information about the awards and nomination process, go here.

As part of BBAW, bloggers are asked to nominate their blogs in a niche category. I’m going to nominate my blog in Best Poetry, Best Writing, and Best Author Interviews categories.
In accordance with those nominations, I must list 5 posts (3 of which must be reviews) for the judges and voters to check out.
Here’s are the posts for the Best Poetry category, though I would like to mention that my blog is home to the Virtual Poetry Circle every Saturday in which a new poem is posted and discussed weekly.
- Song of Napalm by Bruce Weigl (review)
- Full Moon Boat by Fred Marchant (review)
- Poetry Speaks Who I Am by Elise Paschen (review)
- Welcome to National Poetry Month
- Reviewing Poetry
Here are the 5 posts for the Best Writing category:
- Watermark by Vanitha Sankaran (review)
- Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann (review)
- Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman (review)
- Tim O’Brien Gets to the Emotional Core at Politics & Prose
- 2010 Split This Rock Poetry Festival WrapUp
Here are the 5 posts for Best Author Interviews:
- Interview with Frank Delaney
- Interview with Pam Jenoff
- Interview with Lisa See
- Interview with Abigail Reynolds
- Interview with George Bishop, Jr.
I hope everyone participates in BBAW. It is always a fun time.
