Book Blogger Appreciation Week

I just saw on Melissa's Bookshelf the announcement of the Second Annual Book Blogger Appreciation Week (September 14-18, 2009). Below is the information from their web site, or you can click here. This sounds like a lot of fun and a great way to recognize some of your favorite blogs. This will be my first time participating and I'm really looking forward to it. I'll take some time this week to put together my nominations, and will do a follow-up post with my nominations.
