Some of My Favorite Blogs!

Last week, I wrote a post about BBAW and the awards process. I am extremely happy to have been shortlisted, and I think all of the blogs that were nominated are incredible. Unfortunately, not everyone could make the shortlists; and this has really made me sad over the past few days. I know that's the reality of any awards process. I just don't like to see anyone feel less than terrific about their blog -- there are just so many incredible blogs out there! I have over 300 in my reader (and that's before I added new ones that I've discovered during this year's BBAW.) I love each and every one of these blogs for a different reason, and I think they all bring something special to the book blogosphere.

Today, I want to mention a few of those blogs (that are very near and dear to my heart) that didn’t make the shortlists:

At Home With Books
Bloggin' bout Books
Book Club Classics
Books 'N Border Collies
Books on the Brain
Care's Online Book Club
Devourer of Books
Jenn's Bookshelves
Linus's Blanket
Literate Housewife
Medieval Bookworm
Peeking Between the Pages
The 3 R's Blog//Reading, 'Riting, and Randomness
The Book Lady's Blog
The Book Studio
The Debutante Ball

I am so incredibly worried that I've left out a few blogs that are really important to me. I was half tempted to list my entire blogroll, but I didn't think anyone would appreciated reading through that! If you've noticed that I've left out a blog that you absolutely adore, please leave their name and a link in the comments! Thanks!

An excellent list, Julie!

I limited mine to blogs with series/features, else I'd be filling pages. It's hard not to feel like I left out some favorites!

Wonderful list! It's so difficult to remember all the blogs we love - I limited myself to just 5.
