Good morning. Mondays are always hard for me to post anything beyond the Monday What Are You Reading meme because I really want that one to hold for the day… however there are occasional exceptions. 😀
My plan was that when I came home yesterday afternoon I was going to write-up my Appreciation post. Instead… I was at the library from 11- 2 building the Banned Book Week display, then I had a few errands to run, picked up my dog from the groomers, started making my dessert for book club that is tonight, whipped up a quick dinner for Al and went to a Friends Of The Library meeting.
I never did get that post done.
This morning, I thought I would touch on it as my post this afternoon will be my interview swap with a new (and impressive!) book blogger to me, Benji from The Non Reluctant Reader (who in turn, is interviewing me and already has the post up!
So Appreciation. It is always so hard to narrow down the blogs and bloggers I really appreciate. For one, there are so many bloggers I love – they crack me up…. (Jill at Fizzy Thoughts, Trish from Love, Laughter, and a touch of Insanity, Jenners from Life With Books,… and those I like to read their thoughts on books ( and inevitably buy books off their recommendations) : Kathy from Bermuda Onion, Alison from Alison’s BookMarks, Ryan from Wordsmithonia, Laurel from many book blogs :D, Reagan from Miss Remmers Review, Alyce from AT Home With Books…
Of course, inevitably I will be driving into work today and do the hand to the forehead thing and realize someone else I surely should have added to this list and how did I forget and *sigh* Know that you are ALL LOVE and ALL APPRECIATED.
Truly – If you stop by Book Journey and read my nonsense, comment on my reviews, share in my work out woe’s, give advice, play along in the read-a-longs, meme’s, challenges…. I adore you and I thank you – because without you stopping in and making me smile when I open up my laptop and I see your comment…. I dont know if I would do this. Seriously, the readers, make the experience.

Thanks for the mention, Sheila…love how you described my blogs…lol
I’m glad to come here everyday with my coffee and chat….enjoy your day!
Thanks so much for mentioning me! 🙂 I’ve had too much going on this week to participate in BBAW.
Thank you so much for the shout out! You are one of my favorite bloggers and a huge inspiration to keep going at this. Hope you have a great week. I just wish I hadn’t spaced BBAW off this year.
*Your* blog is one I really appreciate. 🙂
Thanks for including me on such a great list! I appreciate you right back!
How about a blogger I loved and really miss?
Cathy from Constance Reader was one of the first bloggers I followed and I loved her insight about books that were unique to her blog and not being reviewed all over the place. She moved in June and hasn’t posted since. 😦
I likq your blog so much especially your Monday morning meme.
The readers do make the experience. Hear, hear!
Am already a follower of several of these blogs, including the awesome Ryan of Wordsmithonia! Happy BBAW Sheila!
So many fantastic blogs and bloggers out there, but one of my favourites is Bree from All the Books I Can Read. Thanks for the giveaway!
One of my faves that I forgot to mention in my appreciation post because I lost track of it in my messy Google Reader is the Everyday I Write the Book blog at http://everydayiwritethebookblog.com.
Aww, thank you! I appreciate you, too, especially for your boundless enthusiasm!
I appreciate a few book blogs. One I enjoy is Luxury Reading.
I have way too many blogs I enjoy to choose only a few… but I do enjoy my visit here everyday. Your endless amount of energy is like my morning cup of coffee!
Now see Leslie, you fall into that head slap category – you and I as well have similar tastes in books!
