Speaking of fabulous new books and bookish events, I have 2 exciting bits of news about the Indie Lit Awards!
- You no longer have to be a book blogger to nominate a book once nominations open up! So let all of your book-loving acquaintances know that 2011 their opinion matters. Also, nominations will be private this year, so no peer pressure worries. (and some clarification: to be part of the running/judging of the awards, you still must be a book blogger...the only thing that has opened up is the nominations.)
- If you are a book blogger, you can now put your name on a list to be considered to receive free books from publishers. Go to the ILA website, select your preferred genre, and look for the linky @ the bottom of the page.
I am sooo totally jealous of everyone at the BEA!! I want to go!!! If you do go next year, maybe we can go together????? I haven't seen the Armchair BEA. I'll check it out. Can't we blow off the end-of-the-school-year burnout for once?ReplyDelete
It sounds like a great excuse to go to NYC, don't you think? I'm pretty sure I could convince my kids to end school early too. ;)ReplyDelete
It's a great idea to open the Awards. I've already nominated one.ReplyDelete
