Book Blogger Appreciation Week Shortlist

I recently found out that Teach Mentor Texts made the short list for the 2010 Book Blogger Appreciation Week in the niche of Best KidLit Book Blog!!!  I am completely ecstatic.  I love Teach Mentor Texts and I'm really proud of what I do here.  It makes me even prouder to know that it has been shortlisted amongst two truly amazing book blogs.

Danielle over at There's a Book actually was one of the first book blogs I fell in love with.  When I was still posting book reviews over at my personal blog she interviewed me for her When I Was Young series.  I love her.  She has given me so much support as a new blogger and I am so grateful for her guidance!

The other book blog I am shortlisted with is Playing by the Book.  I had never visited this blog until I saw the long list for Book Blogger Appreciation Week and this is another great blog.  I can tell she is an amazing mom and she has lots of great ideas for books and activities to go with them.  This is a blog that I will undoubtedly be visiting myself as a teacher and a mom.

I am so happy that I decided to start Teach Mentor Texts.  Being involved in the book blogging community has been such a great experience.  I have loved participating in the fun book blogging events and meeting other book bloggers.  I am thrilled to be shortlisted and even moreso to be shortlisted along with two other brilliant book blogs.

I definitely recommend looking at the list of book blogs nominated for BBAW 2010 to see all the other great blogs that are out there!


  1. Congratulations! I don't read many "kidlit" blogs, but I enjoy yours because it's got the focus on teaching. :-)

  2. Congrats, Jen! Not bad at all, especially for a new blog. You're doing a good job!
