If you haven't visited the new blog that indexes audiobook reviews from your fellow bloggers, I hope you go take a look. We hope you use the site often to link up your own reviews and to discover some great listens and narrators.
We (my partner in crime Susan aka @AudiobookDJ and I) have received almost 375 review links so far and each one needs to be indexed by author, title, narrator, and genre. And each title also gets a separate post with publishing information and a list of reviewers.
These initial days require a lot of work, but once we've cataloged everyone's backlog of audiobook review links, I'll be back commenting on your blog on a regular basis. I am looking through my feed reader daily, so even though I'm not commenting, I'm not missing out on what you have to say.
Early morning edit: Wow! We now have over 400 links! Thanks everyone.
Book Blogger Appreciation Week is coming up: September 13 to 17. The entire book-blogging world, from reviewers to publishers to booksellers, will be participating and so should you! Be prepared for lots of fun, the announcement of the award winners, and daily posts. I'll be hosting four international giveaways of some great books and other bookish items that week plus blogging on the daily BBAW prompts.
I am a member of the 2010 Executive Board and have gotten a firsthand look at how much work goes into making this event a success. I hope you'll be joining in on the fun.
Once you recover from BBAW it's time for the 2010 fall Read-a-Thon. The date has been announced (October 9) and people are already signing up to be readers and cheerleaders. Pick out your books; get ready to play along with the mini-challenges; and read, read, read.
Can't devote the whole day? No worries. You can host a mini-challenge or be a cheerleader during whatever time you have to spare. Can't abandon your family? Get them involved too; lots of bloggers spend the day reading with their spouses, children, and grandchildren.
