To Celebrate BBAW

Since today is the end of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I thought I'd clean out my Google Reader's Starred category and celebrate all those wonderful bloggers who made me laugh, chuckle, grin, ponder, and well, made me put a star on your post.  This way you all can find maybe new-to-you blogs or just have a laugh.  Enjoy!

I'm going to start with this post by Jen at Devourer of Books where she told me of Fyrefly's new Book Blogs Search Engine.  How cool is that?

Another favorite blogger, Pat at Pat's Fantasy Hotlist (who may stop blogging, arg) has a great list of Favorite SFF Characters.  I love that he has Mat Cauthon from Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time.  He's one of my favorites as well.  He also has a list of Most Hated SFF Characters.

I love finding new artists.  Like Books I Done Read, her sister Rebekah Joy Plett is an amazing artist.  Seriously, go look at her portfolio......I love the Words Take Flight one.

I love Masha's blog, really crazy cool drawings and lovely posts about beautiful book illustrations.

Lists.  Who loves lists? I do.  Like Page Turners post on the Angus and Robertson Annual Top 100.  Or Skemommle and Skedaddle's wish list.  Or Tedious and Brief's Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I've Never Read.

And videos...I love funny/cool videos.

This one's from Bookshelves of Doom

Or how about another one from her blog, Jane Austen's Fight Club.

Or this bookish song from The Book Lady's Blog.

Or this video which is making the internet rounds about, let's say one's girl's obsession with Ray Bradbury (here's the link).  Pat of Pat's Fantasy Hotlist also posted on it, including the photo or Rachel Bloom meeting Ray Bradbury.

My Fluttering Heart is such a cool blog for beautiful things.  Check out her post which includes this video:

I have T-shirt lust over at The Tome Traveler's Blog.  And galley lust over at The Book Lady's Blog.  Seriously how cool is that packaging?

Some blogs have me dying to read a book.  Like the reviews for Day for Night at The Book Lady's Blog and Capricious Reader.

This photo at A Striped Armchair just cracks me up.  How adorable is it?

Bart's Bookshelf reviewed The Boy With the Cuckoo-Clock Heart and made me order it at the library.  Basically because this video got stuck in my head.

Speaking of a really cool dark movie, check out this short film, Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man.  I found over at EPBOT: Geekery, Girliness, and Goofing Off.

I would have never thought to read this book but am contemplating it considering A Reader's Respite review.

I enjoyed Chris's post at Book-a-rama on reading alone.

I found this knitting blog called Eat.Sleep.Bog and am bookmarking this post on choosing a yarn.

I found a ton of new blogs during BBAW so I thought I'd share one.  Go over to Regular Ruminations and check out her interview with One Librarian's Book Reviews.  I love her favorite book picks.

Last but definitely not least, is a favorite of mine, Publish or Perish. Look at his gorgeous photos and then dream of visiting Australia. 

Ok folks, that's it for now.  I haven't totally cleaned out my star folder so until next time.  Enjoy!

  2. What a list! Thanks for sharing so many links. I love that Jane Austen Fight Club clip - makes me laugh every time.

  3. You left a comment on my blog (Southern Comfort in a Northern Life) and I am so glad that you did. I LOVE your blog. Now I have a new one to follow!

    Happy Weekend.
