BBAW 2011

Book Blogger Appreciation Week is an annual celebration of book blogs.

It’s a jam packed week dedicated to acknowledging the hard work and contribution of book bloggers to preserving our culture of literacy.

This year’s celebration takes place September 12-September 16th.

The week includes guest posts, daily activities, giveaways, games, special podcasts, and an awards program exclusively devoted to book blogs.

I started Book'd Out just after this event last year but I remember the excitement surrounding it all. It allows book bloggers and readers to nominate their favourite blogs for any one of over 25 categories - view the list of categories HERE. You simply need to register and then you can fill out the nomination form to give recognition to your favourite book blog. It's a huge event that should be lots of fun. The website has all the information you need to learn more about this celebration - GO HERE to find out more!

Oh and of course feel free to nominate Book'd Out! Maybe you think I'm the Best Eclectic Book Blog but if you don't - that's okay too :)

Hello My Fellow Bloggers! I'm going to be gone for the next 2 weeks visiting my daughter in Oregon, so I'm giving you the next two weeks of giveaways to post for me. Thank you so much for all your help. Both weeks are e-books for young adult and adults who are young at heart:

Interview with Romance Author Celia Yeary
E-Book Give-Away August 22 - 29: To win an e-book of Wish for the Moon, leave a comment about this interview with your e-mail. International.

Wish for the Moon is a tale about a 16-yr-old in 1901, Annie McGinnis, who lives on a farm with her family in Northern Texas. Her life changes when a stranger, Max Landry, walks to their house and asks for work. During the 3-year span of the story, Annie becomes the caretaker for her big slow-witted brother, her mother until she dies, her widower father, and a local blind man who has no place to go. She even attempts—and succeeds—at rescuing Max from the hangman's noose. Eventually, grown-up Annie gets her wish, the one she asks for every night of a full moon, the one her mother always told her: "Annie, girl, you might as well wish for the Moon." To win a book, leave a comment at

With the help of her best friend Lucy and her semi-crush Crammit, Juliet is determined to catch the ticket dispenser and climb a few rungs on the middle-school social ladder.
