BBAW Coming Soon

Book Blogger Appreciation Week is coming up in September. I participated some last year, but I hope to be more active in it this time around. For all the details you can visit the official BBAW website HERE.

WHO Anyone who blogs about books is invited to participate.  In fact, we want everyone who blogs about books and reading to be a part of this week!
WHAT A week where we come together,  celebrate the contribution and hard work of book bloggers in promoting a culture of literacy, connecting readers to books and authors, and recogonizing the best among us with the Second Annual BBAW Awards.  There will be special guest posts, daily blogging themes, and giveaways.
WHEN September 14-18, 2009
WHERE Here at the new Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog!  (Please note that this year there are three separate blogs and feeds—one for the main event, one for giveaways, and one for awards.)
WHY Because books matter.  In a world full of options, the people talking about books pour hard work, time, energy, and money into creating a community around the written word.  I, Amy, the founder of Book Blogger Appreciation Week love this community of bloggers and want to shower my appreciation on you!

It’s Monday. What are you reading?

on_mondays

It’s Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event to list the books completed last week, the books currently being reading, and the books to be finish this week.

Well, July 2009 is going down as the worst reading month ever for me. Lots of things going on the past week in my family that prevented me from having much time to read, and when I did, I didn’t really feel like it. I guess this is what it might be like once I go back to work. Basically, I finished no books. Yikes.

My reading plan has drifted since last Monday, but I’m needing to set better goals and prepare a little bit more if I’m going to finish the September challenges.

Reading This Week:

  • A River Runs Through It (already started)
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (due to library by 7/28)
  • Sin City: Volume 6 (due to library by 7/28)
  • Decked (due to library by 7/28)
  • Marley and Me (book club 7/30)

Hopefully I can get through these relatively quickly this week. I’m taking a little weekend road trip so hopefully that will help.
