Happy First Blog Anniversary!


Yesterday, it was one year since I embarked upon this little adventure. And it’s been an exciting year, not only on this little blog as I wrote my first reviews, slowly immersed myself in the book blogosphere, and joined my first read-along.

In celebration of this special day, I’ve lit a small birthday candle:*

It’s also been an exciting year in the rest of my life, what with the thesis, the new job, and all the rest of it. So sometimes I’ve been absent or less active for longer than I would’ve liked. I’ve also networked less than I should have and would’ve liked. But 2012 brings good tidings of a defence date for my dissertation and hopefully after that I should be back to turning more pages and being a more active member of the book blogging world.

Thank you, dear readers, friends, and book blogging community for a good first year!


* OK, the candle is really a leftover from my Christmas decorations, but hey!

    I know how you feel about little time, being absent and networking less than you would have liked, but here’s to 2012 bringing more opportunities!

    Also, great news about the dissertation defence date, and good luck!

    • Thank you! I know you just defended your MA, so I’m sure you know exactly what it feels like (and the good feeling after… yeah, can’t wait for that 🙂 !)
