Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010.

After a bit of debating, I decided to enter myself into the BBAW awards. I figured, "why not?" I can only suffer embarrassment and humiliation, right?

Actually, no. I am really excited to read through posts that highlight the best of the book blogging world. I know that the way I view my own reading and free time has changed since starting my blog and challenge back on September 1, 2009. So this seems to be a perfect way of sharing my challenge and what I have accomplished with others in the book blogging community. I just want to say that I feel slightly uncomfortable entering myself, so please don't assume that I am trying to toot my own horn.

Anyway, there are two categories for nominations, niches and features. I am submitting my blog for one in each. Let's start with the niche category.

Best Literary Fiction Book Blog
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
On Personal Reading Experiences (The Dollmaker by Harriette Arnow)
On Racism and History (Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell)

I am also entering in the featured category.

Best New Book Blog
The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
The Beginnings of "A Literary Odyssey."
Thursday Treat: A Man Without a Country
Cranford Read-Along
