BBAW 2010: The Bloggers Behind the Scenes
The third annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) starts today! To kick things off, Florinda (of The 3 R's Blog) would like to introduce the book bloggers who made this year's event happen. This is the third year of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, and it continues to grow and refine its operations. BBAW 2010 was organized and overseen by an Advisory Board of book bloggers who agreed to remove their blogs from award consideration. Since one of the major reasons BBAW is on She Writes is to introduce writers to book bloggers, I thought this group would be a good place to start. This information comes from the Book Blogger Appreciation Week website. Amy Riley - Amy Riley is the founder of Book Blogger Appreciation Week. She blogs at My Friend Amy, a space devoted to talking about books, pop culture arts and their influence on our lives. Amy also writes for The Friendly Book Nook, and is co-founder of the online publicity company Winsome Media Communications.

Ann Kingman - Ann Kingman is the co-publisher of Books on the Nightstand, a blog and weekly audio podcast offering conversation about books and reading.
