As usual my blogiversary got past me. Bookfan turned 7 last Wednesday. I’d like to thank everyone who visits and leaves comments. It’s so much fun to be able to discuss books with so many great readers! A big thanks to authors, publicists and publishers who’ve introduced me to so many wonderful books.

Once again my blogiversary slipped my mind. You know that saying “Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most” – yeah, that’s me. Tuesday was my Sixth Blogiversary. I can’t believe it. I didn’t expect that I would still be blogging all these years later but here I am. I guess when you love to read it’s hard not to tell people about the books you read. Blogging about books is a fantastic hobby for a book lover and I plan to continue as long as it remains a fun hobby. Thank you all for visiting. I appreciate your comments, recommendations, and friendship. Yes, I consider you all friends 🙂  I look forward to another year of blogging about wonderful books.


The best news of the week is the arrival of our granddaughter! Maggie was born Friday, February 7. We’re thrilled to finally meet her.


Happy reading!

Sunday Post #6

The groundhog was wrong. Snow on Friday and frigid temps on Saturday were good reminders that February is a winter month. That made it even easier to spend the weekend at home. I’m listening to The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley and still knitting the cowl I mentioned last month  🙂

Last week I read and reviewed the entertaining Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman by J. B. Lynn. I also posted a Spotlight on M. J. Rose’s The Book of Lost Fragrances. There’s a special promotion that ends March 1st so click on the link and check it out!

And wouldn’t you know it – I completely forgot my 4th blogiversary last weekend. Thanks to everyone who stops by to see what I’m reading. I really appreciate your comments, recommendations, and friendship.

1st Anniversary

Today marks the one year anniversary of my blog. I’ve enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people who share this hobby/passion with me – blogging about books (with a little real life thrown in).

Thanks to all who’ve given me great book suggestions, technical advice, and for just stopping by to comment.
