Happy Birthday to Boston Bibliophile!


So today marks two full years of blogging. I have to admit I'm kind of proud.

Here's a link to my first day of posting. Fascinating stuff, no? No wonder I had no readers for the six months! Things didn't take off until I tapped into the burgeoning (and trendy) book blogging world and from then on it's been a lot of fun. Some fun facts:
And now? Now I'm trying to figure out what the future holds for me and my blog. I'm trying to do more essay writing, fewer memes, better reviews and more author interviews.

Professionally I'm still a librarian but I'm looking for other ways to get involved in the book world and if you have any ideas, I'm open to suggestions! (Email me privately if you do!)

Of course a big thank-you goes out to my readers and commenters- I wouldn't be able to blog without the great feedback I get everyday. Getting to know you, your blogs and what you like to read has been incredibly fun and rewarding and I know that whatever else happens with life and career, I'll continue blogging for a long time to come.

To celebrate, I'm going to give away a signed copy of that first book I received for review, Edward Hardy's Keeper and Kid.
