Holy smokes! Where does the time go? I knew my five-year blogiversary was sometime this month but I actually let it slip by unnoticed. I put up my first post on November 16, 2009. It was a bit of a, "Here I am. What do I do now?" kind of thing.
Some of my stats: I've shared 1149 posts and I've read roughly 475 books or 133117 pages (calculated by my GoodReads stats). My most common tags are "Review" (521 posts), "4 Stars" (250 posts), and my favorite genres are apparently fantasy (97 posts) and historical fiction (88 posts). I host the Books in Translation, Nonfiction, and Southern Literature Reading Challenges and I nominally host the Character Connection meme, although I've mostly let that fall by the wayside the past year or so.
Now that the reflection and words of wisdom are out of the way, it's time to celebrate! I'll order $25 worth of books from Book Depository for one lucky winner! That can be one book or five, as long as the total is $25. Make your choice(s) and I'll have them shipped directly to you. I wish I could just give a gift certificate but it appears that Book Depository doesn't offer those. The giveaway is open to anyone living in a country where Book Depository offers free shipping.
I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop's, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site. My opinions are completely my own.
