New, Unique Finds Through BBAW

My Friend Amy has asked all of the BBAW participants to post about the blogs they have discovered throughout the BBAW nomination and participation process and to recognize those blogs that did not make the list of nominees.

1. I am sure that I am one of many touting Booking Mama. Julie's Web site is well known around the book blogging world, and just stopping by from time to time I can see why. Her book giveaways are next to none and her reviews always leave me salivating at new books to add to that ever-growing TBR pile. I just love visiting Julie's site even if I don't always comment.

2. Shannon's Confuzzled Books is another blog I discovered through BBAW, and I am now a regular reader. I love the colors and design of her pages. My favorite part of her blog is Refer a Book Friday where she solicits recommendations from her readers, and she then chooses one of those recommendations to add to her TBR pile. The winner of the Refer a Book Friday event is given the opportunity to obtain one of her free books, and she has plenty to choose from.

3. Diary of an Eccentric is my third highlight for this post. And you all should have seen that one coming. Anna and I have been friends for 13 years, at least that was last when I took the time to figure it out. We've always had similar interests from reading and writing, but the blogging world just adds to our office and out of office banter. We're even planning a joint challenge for our readers...more on that later...yes, you heard it undertaking of epic proportions...are you scared yet? LOL

Another friendly reminder about these contests:

1. Diary of an Eccentric is holding a contest for The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold and The Choice by Nicholas Sparks Deadline is Sept. 30

2. Savvy Verse & Wit is holding a contest for Howl and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg as the first contest for Book Blogger Appreciation Week Deadline is Sept. 19

Please also double-check the list of giveaways that continues to grow at My Friend Amy's blog.
