Party Like a Rock Star (even if you didn't make a shortlist)- BBAW Week

Yay! It's finally Book Blogger Appreciation Week! Woohoo! I hope everyone is as giddy and excited as I am. MyFriendAmy and co. have really worked hard to bring this community building experience to us. Today during BBAW is a day when we write a post celebrating and spotlighting our favorite blogs that didn't make the shortlists for the BBAW awards. (Congratulations to all of you who made it!) I have so many blogs I love it is hard to know where to start! If I follow you and subscribe to you, you know I heart you. I love reading your blogs!

I thought I would start off by giving away a special award I made to all of those blogs who inspire me the most and who contribute the most to my ever-growing TBR List! Whoa, it's huge.

I now present this Warning: Dangerous Award to:

~A Garden Carried in the Pocket
~A High and Hidden Place: Tales of a Capricious Reader
~A Sea of Books
~As Usual, I Need More Bookshelves
~Between the Covers
~Bibliophile by the Sea
~Book Addiction
~Bookworming in the 21st Century
~Confessions of a Bibliophile
~Heidenkind's Hideaway
~In Spring it is the Dawn
~Library Lounge Lizard
~Life in the Thumb
~Passages to the Past
~Reading the Past
~Tanzanite's Shelf and Stuff
~The Book Book
~The Reading Life

My second special award is to those bloggers who write thought-provoking posts and who dare me to look deeper & use books to expand my brain, not just occupy it. To you I give The Confucious Says Award:

~At Home with Books
~Book, Line, and Sinker
~Books on the Brain
~everything distills into reading
~Farm Lane Books Blog
~Historical Tapestry
~One Literature Nut...
~Reading in Appalachia
~She is Too Fond of Books...
~The Biblio Blogazine
~The Book Chook
~The Dangerous Pages Review
~Write for a Reader

I have also created MORE awards that I think are lacking out there in the book blogosphere so keep your eyes peeled for those. You never know who might receive one- even you!

Also be sure to stay tuned for tomorrow's BBAW event: My Interview Swap with Robin of My Two Blessings!
