I'm so excited that Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2009 has begun! This is my second year participating, and while I'm a bit overwhelmed with blog reading and posting today (on top of a busy, exhausting day at work), I'm already having a blast.
Today, I want to highlight some blogs with some really awesome reviews that didn't make the shortlist for the BBAW awards (or at least not in the reviews categories). There are so many blogs I enjoy and subscribe to, but I'm going to limit myself to 5. Otherwise, I'd be adding links to this post all day.
You've GOTTA Read This!
Peeking Between the Pages
Life in the Thumb
At Home With Books
It's always a pleasure to read reviews by Kathy, Sandy, Dar, Staci, and Alyce, and if you don't already regularly read their blogs, it's about time you started. ;)
Even though she was on the shortlist this year (congrats!), I want to give a shout out to my good friend Serena of Savvy Verse and Wit. She's been my partner in crime for more than a decade, and we both take turns in the driver's seat at War Through the Generations. She always has something book-related to discuss, she's passionate about promoting poetry, and she's been a big help to me when it comes to blogging and writing.
And finally, I want to thank everyone who visits Diary of an Eccentric. I appreciate each and every one of your comments, and if you're a reader who hasn't yet commented, I hope you'll use BBAW as an opportunity to say "hi."
