Hard to believe that it was only four years ago that I started this blog… that’s a lot of books read over 1,460 days!
Four years ago, I was teaching students about starting their own blogs, when one of them asked me what my own blog was called. Considering I believe in ‘practicing what you preach’, I decided that it was a sign, and that the time was right. I’d been thinking about starting my own blog for a while; I’d met the lovely Misbehavin’ Librarian at a Kelley Armstrong signing, and she and some of the other bloggers present convinced me that I should start one up for my own reading thoughts. Who knew how many other amazing bloggers I would meet, both in person and virtually? From local author events to publisher soirees, to Book Expo America (4th year running!), I’ve had many amazing experiences and opportunities, and I’m grateful to all those who have made them possible. I’ve made wonderful friends in the blogging and publishing worlds, and consider myself incredibly fortunate to count so many fantastic authors as friends.
So how am I celebrating? Well, I’m guest posting over at Just a Lil’ Lost today about the lovely and charming Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George – head over and take a look – and … since every party deserves a party favour, let’s give something away, shall we?
