BBAW Wrap Up and Thank Yous!

September 21st, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books

BBAW_Celebrate_Books

It’s the start of a new week and BBAW is now done.    I had so much fun visiting everyone’s blogs and reading all the posts.  Not to mention my Google Reader has grown and is sure to keep growing as I’m still not done visiting all the blogs I wanted to.  My TBR pile is also bursting now and I am ecstatic over some of the new books I added to my wish list.

I know there has been some negative posts and comments about this event but honestly I had a great time and nothing is ever perfect.  I say if you are going to complain try to be constructive and help out next year. I certainly hope to be able to do something for the next BBAW.   I didn’t realize was just how many people put a lot of time and effort into putting together BBAW.  Here is a list of some of them and again let me say thank you for all your hard work!  If I missed anyone I’m sorry but thank you too!

    BBAW was exhausting but so much fun wasn’t it? I’ve met some great new people, subscribed to some fabulous new blogs (several at your reccomendation) and have gotten the opportunity to see an event like this from the inside.

    HUGE kudos got to Amy for all her hard work and to everyone who participated at every level. It was a great time!
