First Treasure: Kicking off Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010

Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010 has arrived, and bloggers will be celebrating, sharing stories and loot all week.

My giveaway of two copies of Intimations of Austen is now posted on BBAW. So make sure you register to win a copy if you haven't already read my collection of Austen-inspired stories.

Each day BBAW will post a writing challenge and today's is to share a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year! If you are new to BBAW or book blogging, share the very first book blog you discovered. Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more.

I think the first blog I discovered and started following was Shelf Love and it remains a favorite. I have discovered so many wonderful books via this blog, and I appreciate Teresa's and Jenny's insights, thoughtful reviews, and excellent writing. The range of books they cover is remarkable and I always come away feeling richer in having read one of their reviews. I particularly like it when they jointly cover a book, and the review takes the form of a discussion.


  1. Thank you so much for the mention. (And our conversation posts are among my favorites too! We started doing them partly because of BBAW last year.)

  2. I wholeheartedly agree that Jenny and Teresa at Shelf Love have a great thing going. I love their book choices and their personalities!

  3. A great choice to highlight. Shelf Love is one of my favorite blogs! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thank you so much! What a lovely mention!

  5. Your giveaway reminded me that I need to track down my copy of your book! I loaned it to a Jane Austen fan in my book club and she so heartily recommended it that it has been making it's way through the club!
