Happy Blogiversary Giveaway


Woohoo! Today is A Bookworm's World 2nd Blogiversary! I wrote my first post two years ago and thought I would just record my thoughts on the books I read. Wow - this has turned out much bigger than I ever thought possible. And so much fun!!

This year it's been a little harder to keep up with my reading - both books and blogs. I went from part time to full time work and it's really cut into my reading and blogging time! Although, I must say, I have a pretty excellent job - I work at a public library.

With that in mind, and my inability to read every book I see, I'm going to launch a new feature - Over the Counter. (Unless any of you can come up with a catchier name....) I'll be mentioning books that pass under my scanner and over the counter at the library that I find interesting, but don't have the time to read cover to cover.

And to celebrate my second blogiversary I have a giveaway. I have a brand new copy of Bitten by Canadian Kelley Armstrong to giveaway. (Watch for my review next month) And this one's international. Just leave me a comment to be entered. Ends. April 18th at 6 pm EST.

Thank you to each and every reader, commenter, subscriber and all my bloggy friends out there!

Luanne, a very happy blogversary to you!! I think your new feature sounds wonderful. Having just retired from working at the library, I do understand about not getting to read all the books that pass over your scanner. :-)

Don't enter me in the giveaway. I already have this book. But, thanks for sharing your book journey with us!!

TWO??? That's it?? You are such a veteran of this stuff. I'd have guessed you're older, like me.

Anyway, happy blogiversary. And all that good stuff, too.

No need to enter me -- I actually read Bitten a few years back. I'm dropping in with the official thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

Emidy said...

Wow, happy blogoversary! Hope your blog will be around for another two years, at least.

That new feature sounds like such a good idea! It'll be interesting to see what cool books people are checking out from the library.
