Happy Bloggiversary to Lost in Books!

Happy Bloggiversary to me!


I can't believe my first book review was an entire year ago! Granted, I had absolutely NO followers at this time last year, but it was the day I decided that I wanted this blog to be not only where I kept track of reading challenges and books read, but also what I thought of books.

Slowly I began getting one follower here, two followers there, and today I have 240 followers! I continue to be surprised and humbled that anyone would care what I have to say about books and reading.

Today I thought I would celebrate by sharing ten of my favorite posts from the past year on Lost in Books. Thanks again for being here. And here is to another even more fabulous and fun year in 2010!

  12. Has it been a year already? Congratulations. I was one of your first followers. I remember because you were off like a rocket with all your good ideas for posts and challenges (some original ones too). It's your enthusiasm we really love. That can be so hard to manage with problems like yours. I especially enjoyed the Take Me Away Saturdays. I haven't seen it recently-perhaps a monthly post would give us all time to read some lit in the announced category. You must have worked so many hours preparing for each week's post. And you have twice the followers that I do in half the time-you know you're doing something right. I look forward to your second year.

  24. Happy Bloggiversary, Sweetie Peach! My favorite post from the last year was the one where the author of that book about Japanese poetry called you illiterate just because you said it wasn't the type of book you like. Not because he insulted you (of course), but because of the responding comments. Hi-larious! I think you handles that author outburst pretty well, too. :)

  29. I forgot to mention that I love your new header (which I just noticed!). Also, one of my favourite posts of yours was the one about BBAW and whether it was awarding the best or a popularity contest (http://imlostinbooks.blogspot.com/2009/09/bbaw-awarding-best-or-popularity.html). I thought this was a very brave (and thought-provoking) post. Congrats again!
