BBAW, Day 1

It's time! Book Blogger Appreciation Week is upon us, and I do plan to participate here and there throughout the week as much as I can. When I saw today's topic, I was especially keen to jump on in!

While the awards are a fun part of BBAW, they can never accurately represent the depth and breadth of diversity in the book blogging community. Today you are encouraged to highlight a couple of bloggers that have made book blogging a unique experience for you. They can be your mentors, a blogger that encouraged you to try a different kind of book, opened your eyes to a new issue, made you laugh when you needed it, or left the first comment you ever got on your blog. Stay positive and give back to the people who make the community work for you!

First off, I hate choosing. I'll just say, I read a TON of blogs, and I love each and every blog and blogger for different reasons. You bring this community to life for me every day.

The first blogger I'd like to recognize is Allie from A Literary Odyssey. Allie is a great example of a committed, passionate blogger. She has a goal to read 250 classics, and she's working through those at what I consider a REALLY impressive rate. She's also a teacher, though her state has been hit hard by the flailing economy. I love Allie's blog for her writing but also because Allie herself is a wonderful, thoughtful, lovely person.
Another blogger I'm thrilled to mention is Bellezza of Dolce Bellezza. She's also an educator, very well read, blogs about interesting and varied reading choices. Beyond all of these wonderful attributes, I find Bellezza an inspiring woman. She's sassy, she's honest, and she's a woman of faith. Reading her blog always reminds me to stay centered and find the beauty in everyday things.

Finally, Carrie from nomadreader is another enduring favorite, and a rock awesome librarian! She has inspired me to read more literary fiction with her informed, finely crafted reviews. I also love her posts about cuisine and travel. She's a nomad after my own heart. Her blog inspires me every time I visit.
Thanks to all of these ladies for always spurring me on in my own blogging. You're an inspiration!
