Blog Birthday Give-A-Way!

It's been THREE*** years ago today that I wrote my first post. It received 3 comments - one from my daughter, one from my niece and one from JOY from Thoughts of Joy. Since that time . . . Well, you all know because the same thing has happened to you.

I started writing a blog as a means of recording the books I'd read. Then people commented and I discovered there were other book blogs. And as time went on I met people and developed wonderful e-friendships. You all shared so many recommendations for good books that my TBR mountain grew and toppled over many times. That's okay because I read fewer duds and a lot more really good books.

I want to celebrate and say THANKS for all that you've shared with me by holding a drawing for a free book. I chose a book that was published on Feb 5 - just barely! And, I know this is corny, but because OUR PATHS HAVE CROSSED,
the book is
Crossed by Nicole Galland

Leave me a comment and you could win!

I will draw a name on Feb 29










I finished 2 books I was reading, but read the first chapter of Crossed last night before going to bed. It was very engaging. I think we're really going to enjoy this tale of the Fourth Crusade.
***Okay, so I CAN'T add. My daughter pointed out to me that I've only been blogging for 2 years. It's those big numbers - they've always been a problem for me!

Congratulations on three years of blogging! Your mentioning hitting the three year mark reminded me that I just hit the three mark in my current position at work. Wow. It feels like a long time and yet it also feels like it flew by.

Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations on three years of an exceptional blog. It is always fresh and classy. You lay it out and decorate it wonderfully. As for your book reviews, they're awesome. You have great taste in fiction and every time I take one of your suggestions, I'm not disappointed. I also seem to get more out of a book you've reviewed. I'd have never fully appreciated Poisonwood Bible, for instance, without your help.

Thanks and best wishes on your next three years.

I was so happy when I found your blog about 6 months ago. The problem is, I feel I can never catch up with all the good books you recommend!

Happy blogging anniversary!

Kay said...

Happy anniversary! 3 years! I always enjoy stopping by and seeing what you are reading. Great reviews and lots of additions to my TBR pile. Thanks for being here and we'll look forward to reading with you for a long time to come I hope!

Congratulations on your blogiversary! 3 years is quite a long time! I've only been reading your blog for a couple of months, but so far, it's been a great experience (if hard on the book wish list). Here's to another great year! =)

Happy Blogiversary. Three Years what a wonderful accomplishment. I do enjoy reading your blog. I have come across more books to add to my ever growing TBR list thanks to you.

Les said...

I was just getting ready to comment on the THREE years when I saw your note at the bottom of the post! I didn't even know about blogs three years ago. ;) Congrats on TWO years of blogging. Yours is one of my favorites that I check in on every day. I've gotten so many good ideas from your reviews and I loved reading about your travels this past summer. Here's to many, many more years of books, vacations, and friendship.

I don't want to enter the drawing, but I do want to wish you a very happy blogiversary :-)

tanabata said...

LOL! Well whether it's been three years or two years, I still wish you a happy blog anniversary! :)

J. Kaye Oldner said...

Three years? You are my hero!

Kristina said...

Congrats!!! What a wonderful thing!! I can't believe you've been up and running for two years, I can't wait for one! Happy bloggy-versary

Bookfool said...

LOL! Two years is great, also. Sounds like something I'd do. Tonight, I missed photographing an owl because I forgot to put the memory card back in my camera. Much, much worse than counting wrong.

Framed said...

Has it been two years? I blame my blossoming book fetish on you, you know. Before I was content to go to library and settle for whatever they had. No more! Anyway, congratulations.

heather (errantdreams) said...

Congratulations on two wonderful years of blogging!

Becky said...

I just subscribed to your blog and have been poking around. Love it! Congrats on your two years!

raidergirl3 said...

Happy blog day! two years is awesome, and our paths have really crossed too! Your classic challenge introduced me to blogger and book blogging, so thank you, I've had a great year (I missed my one year anniversary, oops) and here's to many more *raises a toast*

Melissa Walker said...

Huge congratulations on the blog bday!

I've been slow about sending out your prize Violet on the Runway, but just got it off today so you should get it soon! Sorry for the delay. :)

jenclair said...

I don't need any books right now, but I'm so glad for your presence here in the blog world! Happy Anniversary!

Darcie said...

Happy blogging birthday!! :) I have been enjoying the blog!!

alisonwonderland said...

happy blogiversary, booklogged! here's to many more books read and reviewed! :)

Ashley Ladd said...

Happy happy blogging birthday. And WOW! 40 comments. That's awesome. I went for days with 0 comments and wondered if anyone read my blogs and now I'm up to about 5 or 6 comments daily. How do you do it? You must have pretty awesome book reviews and posts. I'll be visiting more often.

Stephanie said...

Well, Congrats!! (Even 2 years is a huge accomplishment!) I've come to realize blogging is actually work sometimes! Now that I'm working so many hours, it's harder and harder to post. And I miss it when I do!!

Keep it up though. I love your blog!!

Do consider me for crossed, if it is not too much of trouble!
