Today kicks off Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW for short), a week devoted to celebrating the book blogging community. I like how the event’s website puts it. BBAW was created “to recognize the hard work and contribution of book bloggers to the promotion and preservation of a literate culture actively engaged in discussing books, authors, and a lifestyle of reading.” Today we are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for us.

I have a couple of wonderful ladies to mention. Tif, from Tif Talks Books, first got me interested in fairy tales and other folk stories through her Fairy Tale Friday posts in 2010. I’ve fallen in love with them, leading to my own weekly posts, and I really have her to thank.

The second is Blodeuedd from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell. I enjoy the conversational tone of her reviews, they make me smile. Also, she first introduced me to the Monday Morning Flash Fiction Challenge, hosted by Dottie at Tink’s Place, and while it’s not technically book-related, it’s something I’ve been having a lot of fun doing.

But really it was hard to pick out a couple to highlight. So many people have made blogging a fun experience with their insights, comments and support. Thanks to all of you.
