Well, well, whatdya know?


Forgive me, for I normally don't post on Sundays. However, yesterday I noticed that A Library is a Hospital for the Mind was having a blog anniversary.

I had no idea when I started blogging so I looked it up and - lo and behold - it's my anniversary today! I've been blogging for four years now. Here's my first post explaining my original purpose for the blog. (It's still my purpose today, for the record!) To read more critically. To be discerning. And while I thought the idea of blogging was a fun one, I didn't quite realize all the places it would take me!

Most notably, it connected me with Jennifer and 5 Minutes for Books (leading to a total of 382 reviews over there! It's kind of hard to say goodbye to that team after all the time and effort put into it. Not to mention the friends . . .) Blogging has taken me all the way to New York City! I've made a wonderful set of friends who pray for me and my family and who share life with me in many small (and big!) ways. I've enjoyed making friends at publishing houses and learning more about books in general.

Blogging IS fun. It has also proven to be quite the learning experience. I know I still have tons more to learn and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for me and blogging.

To my regular readers and personal bloggy friends, thanks for hanging around and sharing the joy of reading and blogging with me. YOU put the fun in it and that's the truth!
