I just can’t believe it! Today is officially one year since I started my blog and wow has it ever come a long way! I never would have imagined anyone would be interested enough to read what I was writing about. I guess it helps that I’m writing about one of my favorite topics~BOOKS! But they are and I am so grateful to all of you who take the time to stop by, read my posts, and leave me nice comments.
One of the greatest things other than all these wonderful books I’ve gotten to read and review is all the great people I’ve met including some really great authors. I feel blessed to have come away with a few really good friends who I know I will always keep in touch with.
So Happy Blogaversary to me! And I’ll leave you all with my very first post written on March 9, 2008. As we all know, my addiction hasn’t lessened. If anything it’s gotten worse. lol…
- Hi there, I am addicted to books! I love to read! I pretty much like all books except I’m not much for romance novels though. I love fiction for the most part and historical novels. I’ll pretty much try reading anything once. I read every chance I get even if it’s for a few minutes when I sit down in between other things. I’m running out of room to keep all my books yet keep buying more. Reading gives us a chance to escape to a different world and live a different life for a while. I love that ability to just fall into a book and so many times I’m so sad when they are over but then I pick up a new one and fall again.I hope if you visit my blog you’ll enjoy reading about the books I’ve read.

Happy Blogiversary! I would have guessed you’ve been at this longer than one year … so, am I allowed to ask how many posts you’ve logged or is that the book blogger equivalent of asking a lady her age? 😉
