Sept. 13-17 is Book Blogger Appreciation Week

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.

To register for BBAW, go this form.

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.

  1. Song of Napalm by Bruce Weigl (review)
  2. Full Moon Boat by Fred Marchant (review)
  3. Poetry Speaks Who I Am by Elise Paschen (review)
  4. Welcome to National Poetry Month
  5. Reviewing Poetry

Here are the 5 posts for the Best Writing category:

  1. Watermark by Vanitha Sankaran (review)
  2. Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann (review)
  3. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman (review)
  4. Tim O’Brien Gets to the Emotional Core at Politics & Prose
  5. 2010 Split This Rock Poetry Festival WrapUp

Here are the 5 posts for Best Author Interviews:

  1. Interview with Frank Delaney
  2. Interview with Pam Jenoff
  3. Interview with Lisa See
  4. Interview with Abigail Reynolds
  5. Interview with George Bishop, Jr.

I hope everyone participates in BBAW.  It is always a fun time.


  1. Congrats on making it past the long list. Good luck.

  2. Good luck, Serena!

  3. Glad to see that you registered – I love your blog! Good luck in all categories. *grin*

  4. Good luck, Serena…glad to see you registering 🙂

  5. Best of luck, Serena! Cheering for you 🙂

  6. You are on the ball! I’m excited about BBAW…it was so much fun last year. Good luck!

  7. I like that you chose poetry and best writing. I definitely think you deserve some recognition for all of the work you do promoting poetry – especially for the National Poetry month posts and events!

    • That should have also said “and best author interviews.” 🙂 I didn’t want you to think I left that one off for some reason – just my fumbly fingers typing too fast.

      • No worries. I wasn’t sure I could register for both Best Writing and Best Author Interviews, but then I figured if it was a check box and not a button, it would be OK to register for both.

    • Thanks for the kind words. We shall see who else is in the category with me. There are some great bloggers out there that do poetry as well.

  8. You go, girl! BBAW coincides with our 10th wedding anniversary (can you believe it??), so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve registered and plan to participate, though.
