There are so many great book blogging events coming up, I simply can’t contain my excitement any longer 🙂 Here are the ones I know about. Please feel free to share any other community events you’re aware of in the comments and I’ll and them to the post.
Shirley You Jest Book Awards: May 20th – July 22nd
This book award event is a great opportunity for authors, since the prizes are all publicity based and includes things like blogger reviews. As you might guess from the title, the awards are for books that “deliver the funny” in both a fiction and non-fiction category. Entry requirements are listed here.
Armchair BEA: May 27th – June 2nd
This online event corresponds to the Book Expo America conference in NYC. It’s a way for bloggers who don’t make it to the actual event to get to know each other by sharing prompt-inspired posts; having twitter meet-up; and commenting on each others blogs. Also includes giveaways. Sign-ups are here.
