Each day features a new topic, and here’ s the kick-off:
We encourage you to write a post thanking and spotlighting your favorite blogs that didn’t make the shortlists.
First, I’m going to disobey orders and mention three award-nominated blogs I love:
Thanks to each of you for keeping me entertained and informed. Consistently. I am grateful.
Civil disobedience now out of the way, I shall return to the task at hand. And it is a fun one! I’ve limited myself to mentioning three blogs by name, but will suggest that turning one’s eyes to the right-hand column will reveal a blogroll that lists the book blogs I read every week… (I’m a sneaky one today.)
Books and Cooks beautifully reviews the types of books I enjoy reading (a wonderful mix of fiction, mystery, nonfiction, and book club books)—plus she writes about food and cooking just enough to mix things up a little. I love this time of year, because she posts photos of her farmer’s market haul. Thanks, Books and Cooks!
Gentle Reader has a photo of herself reading at the beach as her profile photo, and every time I visit her blog, I feel like I’m taking a little vacation. It’s wonderfully relaxing to visit her blog to read about the books she’s read recently, which are a fabulous mix. Thanks, Shelf Life!
Dani’s posts are always a pleasure to read, and she often writes about books that are new to me—even if they’re not brand new releases. Often they’re hidden treasures, and she has an absolute talent for discovering them. Thanks, A Work in Progress!
Many thanks to all the devoted book bloggers out there–
