Book Blogger Appreciation Week has started and I’m going to try and be better about keeping updated and join in the fun.

Day 1 – What book blogs mean something to you?  Who are your most trusted sources for recommendations, your greatest help, the blogger you turn to for a laugh or to vent?  Whose writing do you admire or who introduced you to a whole new genre you didn’t know about?  We want to hear all about them…because we want to know them too!  Please share about the blogs we haven’t had a chance to meet via BBAW and let the party begin!

There are a lot of blogs out there that I enjoy reading, and so many more that keep coming about I can hardly keep up. Some of the ones I frequent the most, and look forward to seeing what is new:

So far my Google Reader is pushing 60 bookish friends, but over 160 in overall blogs I am currently subscribed to. I know that this is not even close to some peoples count, but it’s a lot to keep up with.

I trust all the blogs I visit. Sometimes it takes a few visits to really decide what I think, but most of the time the thing that draws me the most is either challenges or a common theme in books/authors. I may not always agree with the reviews but I value the opinion of each person, just like some may not agree with my reviews.
