chasing bawa is 1 today!
14 July, 2010
Yay! I can’t believe it’s a year since I started blogging and I’m still so excited about it. One of the main things that surprised me about blogging is how much fun it is. Apart from making me think a little more about the books I read, I love the way blogging has introduced me to other people who love books as much as I do. And I even got to meet a few bloggers who are all lovely in person as online. And not just books, the whole act of reading, our choices and what it says about our relationship with life and the world is endlessly fascinating to me.
So thank you each and everyone one of you who has taken a little time out of your busy lives to take a peek and sometimes comment on my blog. And thank you to the publishers who have kindly sent me books I wanted to read, I really appreciate it. I started this blog for myself, but it’s become so much more and has enriched my life tremendously!
I even made myself a cake! Really? Of course not, this is my favourite red velvet cupcake from Hummingbird, yum!
So to celebrate, I am proposing a book giveaway. Ta da! I don’t normally do these because 1) I’m disorganised and 2) I’m extremely lazy but since I’m in a happy mood, I’ll give away one book which I have mentioned on my blog to one person who comments (it doesn’t have to be fully reviewed but needs to be mentioned, in print and available from The Book Depository so it’s open internationally). So get checking and start commenting! I’ll pick a winner from a hat in a week’s time (July 21st, midnight GMT).
