Third Blogiversary #Giveaway – Happy Blog Birthday to me!

3rd BlogiversaryGiveaway

Well doesn’t time fly? It’s been three years since I wrote my first ‘hello world’ blog post and I never imagined I’d still be here wittering on about books!

I have had great fun over the three years getting to read some amazing books, many ahead of publication, working with great publishers, getting to know and meet lots of authors and making lots of virtual and real friendships in the blogging community. I’ve even been nominated twice for Best Book Blog at the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards which was such a surprise.

Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a blog without you, dear readers. I love when people comment on my reviews or say they’ve bought a book on my recommendation. So whether you follow my blog on WordPress, by email, on Twitter or on Facebook I wanted to say a little thank you to all 5253 of you. At least that was the number when I wrote this post!

I have four mystery prizes up for grabs – each is a book and a little extra gift. To enter, click the Rafflecopter link below and enter via as many of the options as you’d like to. The giveaway is open until midnight on Thursday 5th April and I’ll announce the winners on Friday 6th.  Good luck!

    Three years? Wow – and 5253 followers… that’s a huge amount – I don’t think I even know that many people! Well done, glad you enjoy it, and its great fun to read too. So, how many books is that you have read and reviewed?

      I don’t know that many people either! I’m not sure I want to count up exactly how many I’ve read and reviewed but the past three years it’s been 100+ each year 😄
