I just accidentally discovered that as of today, I have been blogging for three years! Wow, time flies! When I started my blog, I was filled with so many opinions, thoughts and ideas about books that I couldn't wait to just put them into words. Since then, my whole focus and intention of blogging have changed many times. I've also changed blog styles, post styles and post topics countless times. For the first year since I began blogging, I believe I blogged almost every day. Then it tapered down to a few posts a week, but this year, it has been much less frequent, understandably because of how many changes there have been in my life this year.

I have never done a blogaversary post previously, mainly because it always falls during the holidays (like now), and I remember it only once the new year arrives. So it is three years' worth of thanks that I want to offer now - to anyone who reads my blog - thanks for sharing my blogging journey with me, thanks for checking in and posting comments. If you're a blogger, thanks also for all your wonderful recommendations - I know I've read and liked many a book chiefly after hearing about it on your blog.
I can't wait to continue blogging for as long as this invigorates me!
