Happy Birthday Blog!
Happy birthday dear blog! It's my first year anniversary and oh...what a year it has been!
I'd just like to say how much I have enjoyed blogging this last year. I think one of the highlights was finding out that three of my book reviews were printed in the Persephone biannually. It was such a thrill and I was on a high for a number of days (you can read about that here). I've enjoyed receiving emails from a few of you who've told me I've been one of their inspirations to start blogs of their own. I have loved visiting other blogs and adding books to my reading list. My reading life has never been richer. I've appreciated receiving comments and feedback from all of you readers. Thank you so much to all of you who've stopped by. Based on my stats on sitemeter, I know I've some fans I've yet to meet, so if you haven't already, please do comment dear silent lurkers. I would love to know who you are.
In honor of my first year, I'm giving away a book of your choice. You can choose a book from all the books I've reviewed in the past year and I'll mail it to any place in the world. The only condition is that it should be a book available in The Book Depository . So, please leave a comment below with the book of your choice and I'll pick a winner at random this Sunday. I'll announce the winner on Monday morning. This giveaway is open to anyone, regular readers and even new ones. If you don't have a blog, that's ok too.
Oh and just in case you're wondering, that's not me up there but Marilyn Monroe blowing a candle on her 30th birthday cake.
