BBAW 09 Day 1: Favorite Blogs That Didn't Make the Shortlist

BBAW 09—Celebrate Books (Daily Blogging Topics)

Each day this week, bloggers will be talking about
different topics on their blogs:

Monday, September 14th - Favorite blogs not nominated

Tuesday, September 15th - Blogger interviews

Wednesday, September 16th - Reading Meme

Thursday, September 17th - Blog about a book you found on another blog

Friday, September 18th - Blog about your goals for you book blog

Day 1: Thank and spotlight your favorite blogs that didn’t make the shortlists

Here is a list of some of the blogs I visit most frequently. I hated even starting to make a list such as this because, as we all know, the list would go on and on, and I would still likely leave out some blogs I love (and that's why we have things like Google Reader!) But the point of today's BBAW assignment is to spotlight blogs and bloggers, so I must name names. Here are people and places I visit just about daily for fun, inspiration, support, conversation, information, and (I almost forgot) book recommendations, among other things. If you are unfamiliar with any, drop on by and check them out.

(I didn't realize my list was so femininely slanted until I plugged in each blogger's name. Ooops!)

I think it's hard not to have a feminine slant when it comes to listing book bloggers. I would be curious as to what the percentage is overall of guys to gals who are book bloggers.

Thanks for listing my blog! It looks like we read a lot of the same blogs.

Daphne said...

Thanks for including me in your list. I'm so glad that you entered my recent giveaway since that's how I discovered your blog!

I found it extremely difficult to make up a list too - there's no way to include all the great blogs out there. Thanks for including me in your list.

Diane said...

Gwen, Thanks so much for including me; i love your blog too. So many of the ones you mentioned are favs of mine as well.

Dawn @ sheIsTooFondOfBooks said...

It seems we all struggled with compiling the showcase lists!

You've listed many that I read on a regular basis, and some new to me; thanks for the introduction :)

Anna said...

Thank you so much! That truly means a lot to me. I think I read almost all of the blogs you listed, and the others I'll have to check out.
