BBAW Day One!

Welcome to Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010!  This is my first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week.  I don't think I can say enough about how much I love Teach Mentor Texts and how much fun I am having being an official book blogger.  I've been posting reviews about the books I've read on my "personal" blog but devoting an entire blog to books has been a lot of fun.  Most of the fun comes from interacting with other book bloggers out there through Armchair BEA, Bloggiesta, Got Books? and now Book Blogger Appreciation Week!

Today's topic is "First Treasure" which means I'll be talking about the very first book blog I discovered (since I'm new to book blogging!).  I honestly can't remember how I even discovered There's a Book but I signed up to be part of her When I Was Young series.  Here's the interview she did before I even started Teach Mentor Texts.  Soon after that a friend suggested I start a blog just about books and I remember e-mailing Danielle to see if she had any advice.  I love the she offered help so easily and welcomed me as a book blogger.

What I love:  I love her colorful background.  I love her reviews - that she has a range of books, not just picture books.  I love her energy to be involved in book blogging events.  I love her enthusiasm for authors and publishers.  I love her excitement on Twitter.  I love that she's a mom.  I love that she's real!

Other Book Blog Looooooooves:

  3. I love all three of these blogs that you've mentioned! Great sites!

  4. Ahhh...thank you so so so much! It's always so reassuring to hear that someone else "gets" what you are putting out there and I'm so glad it's you! Thank you! I'm also so happy you started your book blog. I still love your other site, but this is great as well and your reviews are fantastic!

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart! :o)
