The First Ever Litty Awards

Book Chronicle recently announced a new set of awards for literary bloggers. From their announcement:

Today, we are pleased to announce the first ever Litty Awards, the first annual award for litbloggers; bloggers that have worked hard to keep you informed of the latest book news, provide their opinions and insights, and feed your brain with a regular intellectual banquet.

We will present twelve awards, from Best Christian Litblogger to Best Infamous Litblogger over the next six weeks. To do this, we’ve selected thirty five blogs from the whole blogosphere as our nominees to compete for the twelve ‘prestigious’ Litty Awards

I'm pleased to report that the kidlitosphere is represented on the list, which features A Fuse #8 Production, Chicken Spaghetti, Bildungsroman, and ... (drumroll, please!) Jen Robinson's Book Page (though they refer to it as jkrbooks, which is the TypePad site name). All of the categories haven't been announced, but the first award will be given for Best Christian Litblogger. You can see the full list, and vote for your favorite of the Christian Litbloggers on the list, by commenting on the announcement post
