BAND – Bloggers’ Alliance of Nonfiction Devotees Launches TODAY!
At Book Expo America this year a fantastic idea was born. After a discussion about the joys of nonfiction and how we wish more people appreciated it and loved it… BAND was born! Today we officially launch the site and invite any other nonfiction lovers to join.
BAND stands for the Bloggers’ Alliance of Nonfiction Devotees.
Our tag line reads ‘Advocates for nonfiction as a non-chore’.
As you probably know, I really love nonfiction. I not only love nonfiction but I love the random topics and collections of facts that come from the non-narrative nonfiction. I LOVE this idea and am really excited to work with it and hope that I can pass on my love of nonfiction to others.
We’ve set up a Tumblr account where we list more information and the About page has a link where you can join in. Each month a nonfiction lover will host a discussion topic and link to it on the Tumblr. Everyone will then be welcome to respond and participate on their own sites, submitting their links centrally for everyone to check out. If you are interested in hosting that information can also be found on the site.
The BAND idea came originally from Kim of Sophisticated Dorkiness (I like to refer to her as ‘Our Illustrious Foundress’). Cass of Bonjour, Cass! can be credited with the clever title (BAND), also involved were Ash of English Major’s Junk Food with the tag line and the fantastic graphics, and Anastasia of Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog, Joy of Joy’s Book Blog, and Kit of Books are my Boyfriend. Oh and me, as I’m sure you can guess from my post :)
Do pop over and check it out. I hope that you will decide to join us!
