Recently Amy from My Friend Amy announced the Second Annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week: September 14-18, 2009! Here's the information on the front page of the official BBAW web site:


Last year over 400 blogs came together to celebrate the art of book blogging during the first ever Book Blogger Appreciation Week! I am so pleased to announce that the second annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week will be taking place September 14-18.

WHO Anyone who blogs about books is invited to participate. In fact, we want everyone who blogs about books and reading to be a part of this week!
WHAT A week where we come together, celebrate the contribution and hard work of book bloggers in promoting a culture of literacy, connecting readers to books and authors, and recogonizing the best among us with the Second Annual BBAW Awards. There will be special guest posts, daily blogging themes, and giveaways.
WHEN September 14-18, 2009
WHERE Here at the new Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog! (Please note that this year there are three separate blogs and feeds—one for the main event, one for giveaways, and one for awards.)

How exciting--this will be my first time participating since I've only had my blog since February of this year! It seems like such a great community-building week, though. I finally went and submitted my nominations this morning, even though I had registered as soon as I saw Amy's post. I wanted to put a lot of thought into my choices and as you all know there are so many incredible book bloggers out there, it's not easy! Be sure to register and make your choices known, too!! :-)
