Welcome to the second edition of Around the Blogosphere! It seemed to go over really well last week, so I would like to keep up with this feature. Expect to see these posts every Sunday/Monday.
Enjoy the post!
Happened Last Week
Cal over at Read Books and Live Green is hosting an award ceremony type thing for book bloggers. There are many categories to nominate blogs for, like "Most Original Blogger," and "Brightest Design." It's a really fun thing to do, so click on the link above for more information on the awards and nominations! You have until March 15th to nominate blogs for the awards.
Lucy (Queen of Contemporary) is hosting a really cool John Green read-a-thon in March! She'll be rereading all of his books and vlogging nerdfighter related videos. Interested? Watch her video announcing #NerdfighterMonth for more details.
This readathon is being hosted by Looking for Panacea and Readiculous Reads, starting tomorrow (February 24th). There are two parts: Anna and the French Kiss from February 24th to March 2nd, then Lola and the Boy Next Door from March 3rd to 9th. I won't be participating, but it looks fun!
I'll be participating in both these challenges in March! They're a great way to get those free/cheap read and to get those review copies reviewed! COYER starts on March 1st and runs all month, and the Spring Cleaning Review-A-Thon runs from March 20th to 24th.
Say Hello to a Baby Blogger

This blog has been running since January (which is surprising--it doesn't seem that young) and it is so cool! The first thing I read by Becca was one of her Cover Puppies posts, which is one of the most unique features I've seen. She recreates book covers with dogs, and she's pretty good at it. I highly recommend checking out the Eleanor & Park and Fangirl covers she recreated and the rest of her blog!
