3 years and Thank You

Wednesday, January 9, 2013


It's been 3 years since I started this little blog. It's changed, I've changed and I still love it. I've made such wonderful friends through blogging. You people have amazing taste in books! I've co-hosted a readalong and joined in lots of others. I became a moderator of the Classics Club, participated in readathons, and most of all I've somehow deepened my love of reading. I didn't know that was possible. 

So I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who stop by here. Your comments and emails always make my day. You all are the kindest, funniest people and I'm so glad that because of this blog I had the chance to meet you! 

As a tiny thank you I'm giving away a copy of the Penguin Clothbound edition of Jane Eyre. It's one of my favorite books and it's part of a series of editions I'm in love with, so it seemed fitting. 

The giveaway is open internationally. To enter all you have to do is comment and leave your email address below. You don't have to be a follower or follow me on twitter or anything else to enter. 

**GIVEAWAY CLOSED- Amy is the winner. Thanks guys!**

I'm only keeping the giveaway open until Sunday because the point is to thank the people who are regular readers. I'll post the winner here and I'll email them. They'll have 24 hours to respond with their address. 

Thanks again guys, you are all awesome.

  4. That is so awesome! You know time in blog land is like dog years I think, so that counts for 21 years in my book. At least that is the way it feels to me! I am SO glad that we found each other, and can consider you not only a blog friend but one in real life too. I love this giveaway, please put me on the list!

  11. Congratulations on 3 years of blogging! It's quite a feat (and you should feel awesome).

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Jane Eyre - I'm fairly sure the one I read as a teen was donated to Goodwill while I was away at college.
