the Book Blogger Appreciation Week widget over there on the right? It's voting time. Assuming you're reading some book blogs, as well as writing blogs, you may want to head over there and put your two cents in. You can link to their home page with the widget, or use this link to get directly to voting. Scroll down to the bottom of the ballot to see the complete shortlist of nominees and the links to their blogs.
If you aren't already following some of these blogs, the nominees are a great resource for finding new ones. If you're a writer, you are most likely a reader. Book bloggers can help you stay on top of what's good and what's being published, even if you don't have time to read it all. And really, who does? I'm constantly overwhelmed by my "want to read" list, and because I work at the library, the list grows every day. I can't tell you how many people return a book and tell me I have to read it, or ask if I've read a particular book they're considering. I could read all day, every day, and still never catch up!
Whoa, sorry about the tangent. Anyway, as we all know, there's strength in numbers. Your blogging community is sifting through the books for you, choosing which ones are worth your valuable time. The best way to repay them is through recognition.
