BBWA 2012 – Book blogger finds

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series BBAW

Book Blogger Appreciation Week Highlights

Initially, I could say the best thing about this week is that I discovered the annual BBAW event. I could say that. I could also say that another major highlight is the wide variety of books highlighted by all the particpants. Yes, I could say that. But in the end I realized that what matters most are the people who take time out of their daily lives to sit in front of a blank computer screen and gush, rant, ramble, and swear their way into the weekly output of book reviews that make up the fascinating world of book blogging.

Book bloggers to read and watch

Write Meg!

It’s always risky to pluck a few names from a close community to share but there are three who were unfamiliar to me. These are my brand-spanking new book bloggers that are definitely reader-worthy.

Write Meg! – Meg has created an interesting book blog that contains reviews and photographs of her travels. Aside from the actual writing, she caught my eye because we share a history of working for Borders Books.

Pretty Books – Stacy (from London) is another book blogger who demanded my attention. I like her writing and the fact that she’s gone to the London Book Fair. Doesn’t hurt that she read 100 books in a year last year.

Book blogger Benji shares his passion for booksThe Non Reluctant Reader – It’s hard not to be captivated by a 12 year old book blogger named Benji. He’s an articulate, avid book lover who came to book blogging for all the right reasons. He loves books, loves to read, wants to talk about it. He says it best:

 So in short what blogging is for me is an outlet for me to gush, rant, and ramble about books. It’s a place for me to share my opinions and receive others. It’s a place for me to be enthusiastic about every kind of written word…. Benji Kenworthy

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is probably the best highlight of all.

    Great wrap up, Vikk! Book bloggers really do put a lot of effort and work into their blogs. It’s been fun and cathartic to come together this week and talk about why we’ve stuck it out and what keeps us coming back.
