You’ll have to forgive the swear in the title, but I wanted something light to introduce the post! I’m still in shock over continuously blogging for five years! That first half-year back in 2010 was a bit dodgy, but since then I’ve stayed pretty true and consistent to my blogging and reading passions.
Obviously I couldn’t have done this without you, my lovely blog readers and friends. We’ve spent FIVE YEARS hanging out. Many of you I’ve met via book blogging and many of my friends I’ve dragged screaming and kicking into this world (mostly through Come Read with Me). I want to give a special thank you to the top six most recent commenters, based on the 1000 most recent comments. You all really make me want to keep talking about the books and the things that I love:
- Heather @ the recently revived Between the Covers
- Katie @ the always wonderful Doing Dewey
- Rob @ the game-tastic and book-tastic Loose Logic
- Heather @ the delicious recipe filled Ex Libris
- Jessica @ the movie adaptation and book filled The Bookworm Chronicles
- Karen @ the always informative and thoughtful BookerTalk
Of course there are others and I truly appreciate every comment, share and like, but these people are some of the best out there! Now on to what most of you will be here for, my pay-it-forward Five Year Giveaway!
Five Year Giveaway: Win $25 in Amazon or Book Depository Credit!
As it’s been five years and I’ve met so many amazing people I’m going to have a raffle for two $25 prizes. That means I will select two random winners who will either chose between a $25 Amazon gift card (US) or up to $25 in books from the Book Depository (any number of books as long as they don’t go over $25).
All you have to do is enter the Rafflecopter contest by clicking either the photo or the word Rafflecopter in the last sentence. Entries will close on SUNDAY July 26th at 12:00am EST and I will announce the winner on Monday July 27th at 12:30pm.
Keep an eye out on Wednesday for my stats and Top 5 Moments of the past year!
