BBAW Short Lists Are Up!

BBAW Short Lists Are Up! post image

I’m a little late to the party on this one, but if you’ve missed the news, here it is: Voting for Book Blogger Appreciation Week is open, so get over there and cast your votes for your favorite blogs. You can check out the short lists to explore the amazing bloggers who were nominated and selected, then log in to vote at http://bbaw.heroku.com.

Sophisticated Dorkiness was nominated for Best Nonfiction Book Blog, which is just awesome. However, the other two blogs on the short list are even more awesome. If you love nonfiction, you should absolutely check them out. They’re also both participating members in The Bloggers’ Alliance of Nonfiction Devotees, which is great.

Maphead’s Book Blog is a relatively new one for me (so, within the last year, I suppose), but I’m a huge fan. I love the variety of books that get reviews, especially older nonfiction that’s fallen off my radar. And every review is insightful and includes connections to other nonfiction, making each post a rabbit hole of great books to read.

Christa over at Mental Foodie is another favorite blog of mine. She does a variety of reviews, but also manages to put up lots of other posts of book-ish interest like bookshelves and book covers and blog personality types.

While I wish there had been more blogs nominated for nonfiction, I’m honored and excited to be listed with those two bloggers this year. If you’re curious, here are the five posts I submitted as what I consider the “best of Sophisticated Dorkiness” from the last year:

No matter who you vote for, make sure you head over and make your voice heard. If you aren’t interested in the awards part of BBAW, which is really just a teeny piece of what goes on, be sure to explore the daily topics and draft up some posts for next week. I can’t wait!
