BBAW: Day One: Appreciation

Monday: Appreciation! There are no awards this year, but it can still be hard to navigate the huge universe of book blogging. Share with your readers some of the blogs you enjoy reading daily and why.


Hi readers!
First day of BBAW and I am stoked! I have to say, I appreciate you guys the most. You readers are why I keep doing it when I feel like it's too much, and your encouragement and comments lift me up. I appreciate my fellow bloggers, but without you readers, really, why bother?!
So now I will pay homage to the "faves" of my blogging world. Some are old and some are new... enjoy!

  4. Thank you so much, Freda. I have always appreciated your support and enthusiasm for Reading Lark & Reading Lark After Dark. Somehow I wasn't a follower here. I have no idea how that happened - it has been fixed. :)
