6th Blogiversary!


Yes, you've read the title right. It's my 6th Blogiversary!! Wooohooo! Well actually, I'm a few days late ^_^; I always thought it was the 26th, but turns out it's really the 20th. I'll try to remember it for next year LOL. In any case, it only means I've had this blog for more than 6 years :) Definitively something worth to celebrate! It's funny because I just re-read my first post ever and in it, I mention I didn't know how long I'd be blogging. Now, I can't imagine my life without it and I know that as long as I'll be reading, I'll be blogging :)

Seriously, these past 6 years have been amazing! It has brought so much to me. When I started, I never imagined meeting authors, going to books conventions or even receiving ARCs. The experiences and the books are great, but more important is the friends I've made!! People who share my passion, whom I can discuss with. Really, I could not imagine my life without my blogger friends! You've made my life so much richer! And for that, I am so very grateful :)

So to celebrate my 6th Blogiversary, I've decided to host a giveaway! Yay! There is three parts to the giveaway :) First, there are three autographed books that I've got at last year's RWA.



 Second is your choice of book among four new releases in July that I am soooo looking forward to :) It can be either print or ebook.





 And finally, an e-book gift certificate of 15$ at your choice of e-store :)

The rules to the giveaway are simple :) The giveaway is open to everyone from everywhere. Just leave a comment before noon (Eastern time) this Saturday (June 30). In you comment, please specify which draw you'd like to be in: the autographed books, the book of your choice, the gift certificate or all of them :) Also, make sure that I have your email address so I can contact you. And voila!

Good luck everyone!

  2. Congratulations Nat! You're so old LOL. Seriously, blogging is not easy, especially if you consistently publish quality content. I'm really happy I found your blog, and even happier to call you a friend, even if it is an online one ;-) I wish you many, many more years of great books and book talk.

    Count me in for the gift card, can't say no to those.

  4. Happy, happy! Six years is nothing to sneeze at! And you are so right. As much fun as blogging is - the friendships I've made over the years because of my blogging is what's really sweet.

    (And ugh! I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THE KAY HOOPER BOOK! Bad librarian. Bad, bad!)
