Yay! One of my favorite weeks of the year is here! This past week has been really rough for me and yesterday was the final blow, so I was debating whether or not I even had the energy to fully participate in BBAW anymore. But now that it’s here and I’m making myself get back to writing, I can already feel my mood getting lighter. Last year was the first time I participated in BBAW, and I loved it because I got to find out about so many new bloggers. It’s a great community to be a part of.
If you’re new to this blog, Harvey the Ditz and I welcome you (that video was taken a couple of months ago, but he still does that). I’d also like to take this moment to thank everyone who voted for this blog for the 2011 Best Cultural Book Blog category. It was an honor to be shortlisted alongside S. Krishna Reads and In Spring it is the Dawn; both of those blogs are fantastic, so I’m in great company.
One thing about this week–I probably won’t participate on Thursday because that’s the first day of Latina/o Heritage Month, so I’m going to post about something related to that instead (FYI: I’ll be posting about Latina/o literature throughout the month). But other than that, I look forward to celebrating book bloggers this week. I’ve got a giveaway I’m really really really excited about–details Wednesday!–and I can’t wait to add even more blogs to my Google Reader.
Today is all about blogger love, and I have tons of that for you today:
Blog that has most contributed to make my TBR list ridiculously long… A Striped Armchair
Blogger who is always blowing me away with her awesome reading projects… Amy Reads
Blogger I’ve known the longest without even realizing it… Paperback Reader
Blog I go to when I need a music-infused literary fix… Largehearted Boy
