Book Blogger Appreciation Week

As most of you know I'm fairly new to blogging. Earlier this week I learned, through Girls with Books, that there is going to be a Book Blogger Appreciation Week in September. I'm not exactly sure what it's all about, but since I blog about books occasionally, I decided to register and find out. Here is all the information from the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog (copied from the website). I've also added a badge to my sidebar. So all you book bloggers, if you are interested or curious about this, you might want to register. I'm anxious to see what it's all about myself.

From the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog:

Announcing the Second Annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week September 14-18, 2009
Last year over 400 blogs came together to celebrate the art of book blogging during the first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I am so pleased to announce that the second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be taking place September 14-18.

WHO Anyone who blogs about books is invited to participate. In fact, we want everyone who blogs about books and reading to be a part of this week!

WHAT A week where we come together, celebrate the contribution and hard work of book bloggers in promoting a culture of literacy, connecting readers to books and authors, and recognizing the best among us with the Second Annual BBAW Awards. There will be special guest posts, daily blogging themes, and giveaways.

WHEN September 14-18, 2009WHERE Here at the new Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog! (Please note that this year there are three separate blogs and feeds—one for the main event, one for giveaways, and one for awards.)WHY Because books matter. In a world full of options, the people talking about books pour hard work, time, energy, and money into creating a community around the written word. I, Amy, the founder of Book Blogger Appreciation Week love this community of bloggers and want to shower my appreciation on you!

Intrigued? I know I am.

I will most certainly be checking that out! I don't blog (much) about books myself, but I sure do enjoy reading about it when others do!

Very interesting....I have no need to blog about books 'cause you do such a wonderful job, I just read whatever you suggest. Easy.
