I need help with my nominations!

Have you heard about Book Blogger's Appreciation Week? It's being hosted by My Friend Amy. Anyone can participate - click here for more details.

Amy gave us a list of categories and we can nominate two blogs for each. Here's where I need YOUR help. I came up with nominations for several of the categories but I KNOW I'm missing some great blogs. Feel free to give me suggestions and to copy any of my nominations for yourself.

Here are the ones I've completely decided on:

For these, I only have one nomination so far. Are there any other great blogs out there that fit these categories?

These are the categories that have me stumped - any suggestions?

  • Best Literary Fiction Blog
  • Best Non-fiction Blog
  • Best Challenge Host
  • Best Community Builder
  • Most Chatty
  • Best Book Community site
  • Most Eclectic Taste

And these are the categories that I most likely won't use. For the first few, it's because I don't usually read those genres so I'm not qualified to say which blogs are actually good. For the others, I don't read many author blogs nor do I read many new books, so again I'm not qualified.

  • Best Christian/Inspirational Fiction Blog
  • Best Romance Blog
  • Best Thrillers/Mystery/Suspense Blog
  • Best Young Adult Lit Blog
  • Best Cookbook Blog
  • Best Published Author Blog
  • Best Book Published in 2008
  • Most Extravagant Giveaways

Sooo, anyone willing to help a gal out? I promise I will check out each and every blog that you suggest, and I'll post a list of my final nominations before I send them over to Amy.

I'm going to have to check some of these out! :)

btw, I did extend the LOST challenge to January since new episodes don't air until February (gah...the wait!!)

OK, with a post like this, I"m in real trouble. I mean, I've chosen you as my one-stop shop for book blogs because I don't have time to read all the others. That being said, I was so glad you chose your own book club blog because I happen to agree with you. But now all those other blogs you mentioned are so tempting to look at...Couldn't you just borrow whatever is great about those other blogs and put it into yours so I don't have to look any further than you?? I know it's selfish, but at least I'm loyal...

Amy - Excellent news! I'll have more time to read now. :)

Susan - Thanks - love you too!!! And loyalty IS a good thing!

Ha! You need help?! I need to sit down and think about this myself . . .

I saw this post yesterday, but looked right past your nomination, for some reason. Thank you very much, Heather. I only wish I actually were reading more and living up to my own name. :( But I'm glad to have met bloggers like you and many of the others you mentioned. Keep up the good work.
