My Third Blogoversary & Giveaway!


It's a little hard to believe, but my blog is turning three years old today!  It went by so fast.  I'm the type of person who has lots of dreams and ideas, but never really makes them happen, so I'm so glad I took a chance and started this blog.  I've had a lot of fun and met so many new and wonderful people.

The blog has gone through many changes in three years - the look of it (it will never be perfect for me, but I think I've gotten it to a clean, stream-lined look), how I review books, new features.  It's also fun to look at how much my life has changed in the same time - our extended family has grown, we bought a house, I've changed jobs.  No matter what has happened, though, my love of books has only grown!

As a thank you to everyone who has supported me, I'm hosting a giveaway for a book of your choice worth up to $20.00 from The Book Depository, as long as it ships free to your country.  The giveaway will be open until May 4, 2019, and the winner will be notified by email, with three days to respond.

Thank you and good luck!
