Sunday Salon: Book Blogger Appreciation Week

I have been a little lazy posting this up, so here goes. The annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week is going to be held from Sep 14-18, 2009. There is a dedicated website you can visit, lots of giveaways and contests, and many bookish memes too. Here's what the official pitch is.

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!

This is my first BBAW and I'm looking forward to participating in it. I have really no clue as to what it involves, but I see a lot of enthusiasm among past bloggers. If you are a book blogger, and you haven't joined the BBAWwagon, what are you waiting for? Go check out the site, and join up.

And also, starting this week, I shall be posting on Sunday Salon about different international giveaways and contests across the blogosphere. I've found some great blogs through the giveaways they have held, but I often forget to check back. So the Sunday Salon posts will help me keep track of my giveaway entries, and thus, the wonderful blogs hosting them, so that I can visit again, and help you readers find giveaways you probably missed.

At Home with Books is giving away The White Queen by Philippa Gregory
One Persons Journey through a World of Books is giving away The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory
Peeking between the Pages is giving away Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Update: I just found out that our mid-term exams are scheduled for the BBAW week. Talk about bad luck! But I will nevertheless try to drop in on BBAW, however short the visit may be.
