Book Bloggers Appreciation Week: A Thanks and Giveaway


As part of Book Bloggers Appreciation Week (BBAW), we've been asked to mention a few blogs that didn't make the award lists or shortlists. I have to be honest and say that there are so many that I'd like to acknowledge, that I can hardly keep track of them! At this point, the blogs that I've been following with the most regularity, are those that I've been friends with for some time, those that Twittered their posts, and those who have left comments on my own posts. I'm going to make the list short, but that doesn't mean that there aren't a hundred or more others who I'd like to mention!

Babbling about Books, and More!
Heidenkind's Hideaway
Bookscoops
Books, Lies & Alibis
Booking Mama
Books on the Brain
Emily's Reading Room
Hawaii Book Blog
It's All About Books
Ooh...Books!
Alaine--Queen of Happy Endings
Angieville
Confessions of a Book Habitue
Lost in Books
One Librarian's Book Reviews
Pudgy Penguin Perusals
Starting Fresh
The Biblio Blogazine

Each of these blogs have inspired me in their own ways, so thanks for all you do!

As for part two of my post, I'd like to post a giveaway in honor of BBAW! I've already given this book away earlier this year, after LOVING the escape factor in this fun, romantic, chick read. For my giveaway, I'd like to offer a copy of Harriet Evans' novel A Hopeless Romantic. Yes, I'm offering yet another copy!

If you'd like a chance to win this fun romp of a read, all you have to do is post a comment here with your email address attached. Yes, I'm making it super easy! This is my thank you to all those I've met here, in the hopes of meeting a few more. I will be closing the giveaway on Sunday, 9/20 at midnight MST. For more information about this fun read: A Hopeless Romantic.

Best wishes!

  4. You don't need to enter me hon. I just wanted to express my appreciation for mentioning my blog The Bibio Blogazine.

    And you are SO right. There are many blogs that I would love to see get more attention, and with the efforts such as you, GalleySmith, and others, the word is getting out.

    Every time a troll makes the rounds, all I have to do is think of all the good ones, such as you, and it makes being part of this community worth it.

    Thank you!
