Book Blogger Appreciation Week and Nominations

I was surprised and delighted this week to learn that has been nominated in several categories for a Book Blogger Appreciation Week award. Here is the criteria from the BBAW website that define my nominations. Wow is that ever intimidating! I couldn't agree more with whoever first said that it is a thrill just to be nominated.
  • Best Speculative Fiction Blog (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Paranormal) – This blog features the best reviews and specialized content in speculative fiction.
  • Best Reviews – Book reviews are the heart and soul of book blogging, and this blog is the cream of the crop - consistently well-written, entertaining and informative reviews are a staple on this blog.
  • Best Writing – It’s not just what they say, it’s how they say it. This blog is almost as enjoyable to read as the books (and anything else) it talks about.
  • Best New Blog – This new blog seems to have appeared out of nowhere since September of 2008 and has jumped into the book blogging world with both feet. You love their posts and wonder how the book blogging world ever got along without them.
Book Blogger Appreciation Week will run from September 14-18, 2009


  1. WooT! Congratulatons!! Very much deserved on each nomination. :)

  2. Congrats. Now I know who my competition is. There goes my chances. :P

  3. Congrats on the nominations, Doug. You totally deserve them :-D

  4. Hi ya Doug...CONGRATS and no way in heck was I surprised!!! You have one of the most awesome blogs found on the net and I'm still amazed at how much information you process :-)

  5. Congrats on all your great nominations!

    Dottie :)

  6. You definitely deserve those nominations. This is one of the most interesting and informative blogs about my favorite genre to read that I've seen. I see covers on here before I notice them on bookstore websites (especially since I stopped using Amazon). You should feel proud. I'm sure it takes a lot of work too, lately it's all I can do to write something once a week on my blog.

  7. Chris, Donna and Ryan - thanks so much.

    LOL Jackie there are so many terrific blogs out there I doubt I will make the short list on any of them. Bet you do though :)

    Thanks everyone. Like my post says it is cool just to be nominated which reflects more on the terrific readers that support the blog.


For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
