BBAW: First Treasure

Welcome to Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010!  I hope that everyone is ready for a week full of blog reading and celebrating.  My posts will be brief but don't think that I'm not incredibly excited about this event.  I just want to leave you time to visit as many sites as possible!  And please leave a comment if it's your first time here.  I would love to follow it back to your site or just to know you stopped by!

I'm going to start here with the first writing exercise and following this later today will be my giveaway post.
We invite you to share with us about a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year!  If you are new to BBAW or book blogging, share with us the very first book blog you discovered.  Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more.
Well, this is an easy one and a tough one.  There is one blog that comes immediately to mind and then there are a bunch more that immediately follow it and I would love to share them all with you.  But I'm going to mention the one blog that you absolutely need to check out if you haven't already and that's Jenny's Books.  Jenny has a wicked sense of humor and a wonderful blogging voice.  She also reads a wide variety of books and was the host of the ridiculously awesome Diana Wynne Jones Week last month.  I hope that you go say hi to Jenny today and tell her that Kristen sent you!

Beginning the celebration,


  1. Oh, I am so flattered! You are nice and deserve much credit for the success of DWJ Week because you were so gung-ho and great about it. Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm blushing. :p

  2. I don't think I've checked out her blog...going to do so, now!

  3. I already love Jenny...and now I think I could like you, too!

  4. Well, she has a great name ... I know that!

  5. *waves* Hi, this is my first visit to you I think, so I'm saying hi. =) Thanks for reminding me I should be following Jenny!

  6. Sorry, haven't been around much recently - but I promise to check out Jenny's blog (plus a few others I keep meaning to try) once I'm fully online again.

  7. Eva - I love bloggers who really put their personality into their posts. I'm working on doing that more myself.

    Jenny - Aww -- anything to help you and DWJ!

    Jeanne - Hehe ... thanks!

    Jenners - There are a lot of Jens and Jennys, aren't there? ;)

    Hi Megan!

    Glad to see you surface, Tracy! Hope to see you back full time again soon.
