If you usually read these posts in a feed reader and don't click through to the blog, you probably haven't seen this widget in the sidebar yet:
Independent Book Blogger Awards on Goodreads for the chance to win one of four expense-paid trips to Book Expo America in June. (Full disclosure: I'm going to BEA anyway. I just couldn't pass up the chance to have the trip paid for...and I won't lie, the award recognition would be very nice too.)
One winning blog will be chosen in each of four categories: Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction, Young Adult and Children's, and Publishing Industry. I'm entered in Adult Nonfiction, and have submitted these posts for consideration:
- How to Write a Book Review
- Chick Lit LIVE! An Evening with Anna Lefler
- Book Talk: *The Girls of Murder CIty*, by Douglas Perry
- (Audio)Book Talk: *American on Purpose*, by Craig Ferguson
- Book Talk: *Planting Dandelions*, by Kyran Pittman
Public voting opened yesterday on Goodreads and will continue through April 23. The top 15 vote-getters in each category will be designated as finalists, and their entries will be reviewed by a committee of judges. Winners will be selected and announced in early May.
Goodreads members may vote once
(And if you don't want to spend your Adult Nonfiction vote on me, please consider giving it to Kim, Alyce, Melissa, Aarti, or Gwen!) I hope you'll help send four great book bloggers (or three great bloggers plus me) to BEA 2012!
(And speaking of votes--thanks to everyone who weighed in on Sunday's "Which e-book should I read?" poll! The runaway winner was Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein, and it's waiting in the Kindle app on my iPad right now.)
