Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010
As you probably know Book Blogger Appreciation Week is coming up in September. It's basically a week-long, online party to celebrate book bloggers and the book blogging community. Registration ends tomorrow and I've kind of left it to the last minute as I couldn't decide which way to go. I haven't been posting quite as frequently over the last while, so I debated whether to opt for my blog to be up for an award or not. However, I was incredibly thrilled to have In Spring it is the Dawn shortlisted for the Best Cultural Review Blog Award last year, and I like to think that you still look here for reviews and news of Japanese Literature and to chat about all things Japan. Plus I do hope to get back to a regular schedule over the summer. So, here are my five links for consideration for this year's category of Best Cultural Book Blog.
Review: Beyond the Blossoming Fields by Jun'ichi Watanabe
Review: Paprika by Yasutaka Tsutsui
Review: The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
Introducing Hello Japan! a mini-challenge about Japan
'I Am a Cat' Volume One (JLit Read-along)
Not officially submitted because it isn't book-related but it certainly is cultural:

If you haven't yet registered, don't delay! And be sure to check out the Book Blogger Appreciation Week website for all the details about this special celebration.
Looking forward to September,
