And Today We're Three
Today marks the third anniversary for Becky's Book Reviews. I'd like to thank my readers for sticking around, for being so supportive and so friendly. I love to hear from you. So don't be shy! (I love comments!) I'd like to thank the publishers and authors as well. While I would still continue to blog even without new review copies--I'm not in this for the free books after all--I appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness. You do make a big difference in my life--in what I read and what I blog. (Or perhaps I should amend that to when I read what I blog.) I'd like to thank all the challenge hosts out there for giving me something to blog about. Challenges have made a huge difference in my life after all. They're so very addictive. And I want to thank you for enabling me!
Last anniversary, I chose selected posts from each month, I'd like to do the same this year...
Year Three, Month One: My review of Breaking Dawn. Slightly off topic, I really, really can't wait until Dan breaks down Breaking Dawn. Right now, he's reading New Moon. And he's already finished Twilight.
Year Three, Month Two: My review of Jane Eyre. Because I love being wrong about a book. I love making a new friend.
Year Three, Month Three: My interview with Kathi Appelt. I know I shouldn't have favorites. But this interview is. I think Kathi Appelt was just awesome.
Year Three, Month Four: My review of Jellicoe Road. Because sometimes it's really, really hard to describe a book you find so perfect.
Year Three, Month Five: Weekly Geeks 27 Because I still miss Dewey.
Year Three, Month Six: The King's Rose. Because the cover still wows me. I don't know. Do I have to have a reason???
Year Three, Month Seven: Don Quixote Because I spent so much time with Don Quixote. This is a monster of a book and I'm really proud of myself for sticking with it.
Year Three, Month Eight: Maus An amazing book--an unforgettable one.
Year Three, Month Nine: Real Reason I Blog Because sometimes I need a reminder that it is all about making connections. Connecting books with readers.
Year Three, Month Ten: Fat Cat Because I love finding a book that makes me giddy.
Year Three, Month Eleven: The Blue Castle Because I love finding myself in a book.
Year Three, Month Twelve: To Say Nothing of the Dog. Because I love taking a chance and having it pay off.
