BBAW Registration Thingy



I'm sure you've seen a few of these posts go up around the community.  To be eligible for an award during Book Blogger Appreciation Week this year, there is a registration process.  You have to choose your niche and link to five representative posts.  I thought about passing on this because I'm not great at self-promotion but I also loved BBAW last year and all of the new blogs I found through the event.  I don't want to miss out so here we go!

We're obviously going to be joining up in the Eclectic category.  Here are what I think are five of our best posts from the past year --

Generations in Oz
Banned Books Week or My High School Reading List
To Serve Them All My Days
Variety is the Spice of Picture Books
"It was raining again ..."

And here are a few other posts that were in the running (in case you are newer to our blog and haven't gone back through the older posts) --

Please note that you need to register your blog to participate in the voting even if you don't want to be eligible for an award.  This is new this year.  I hope to see many more of these posts go up so that I can vote for my favorite blogs so don't miss the July 7 deadline!

Dusting off and polishing some old posts,

  2. Yay! I love your blog, and I'm glad you're registering. I think the momentary discomfort of 'nominating ourselves' is going to pay off. At least, I hope so. Keep up the good work!
