Honored with a BBAW Nomination

Members of the Notable Books blog have been honored with a BBAW Nomination in the Best Literary Fiction blog category. This category is described as follows:

This blog covers primarily literary fiction. The reviews are of a high caliber and get you to think on some of the deeper issues that literary fiction brings up.

This year panels of bloggers will short list blogs in each category based on pre-set criteria. When I was notified of our nomination, I provided five links to reviews from our blog which I felt best represented the Literary Fiction blog category. The time line for short lists and voting are as follows:
  • August 21 Nominee information is due by 11:59 PM EST
  • August 22—September 4 Panelists review blogs and submit scores based on the following criteria: Quality of Writing, Originality and Diversity of Content, Audience Engagement, and Visual Aesthetic and Functionality.
  • September 7 Shorlists are announced and voting begins
  • September 12 —Voting closes at 11:59 PM EST
For more information, and to follow all the nominations and activities for BBAW, visit the BBAW blog.

CONGRATULATIONS to all members of Notable Books blog for this tremendous honor!!!

Hi, thank you very much for your interest in my blog... I´m trying to do the same but I don´t find the "followers" option, sorry.
Very interesting blog, and when I have some time I´ll take a long ride and reading in it.

I am guessing we didn't win? We'd know by now? I looked at that site earlier but missed the voting opportunity.

Hi we didn't win...but I think just being nominated was a huge honor. The competition in all the categories was stiff this year!
