1 Year Old Today

When I look back and think of 2010 in general it feels like the year went by very quickly, yet when I look at it from the perspective of book blogging it seems so long ago that I started.

This I know has mostly to do with the number of books I’ve read since then, and the amount of writing I have completed for reviews – but I think it’s also to do with the fact that when I began, ebooks weren’t so big and looking at it that way shows how much we’ve changed in a few months.

I am reading far more broadly, and I’ve discovered so many new and different authors. Through reading reviews of classics from people passionate about them, I’ve come to make classic authors a staple part of my reading. My review style has changed to include more commentary rather than simply whether a book is good or not. I’m finding myself actively seeking out books with social themes in all the genres I like to read.

I’m enjoying book blogging so much and the community is fabulous. Thank you all for being so welcoming and for enriching my reading life in a way that would never have happened if I had continued alone and if there was no community.

Congratulations on your blogoversary — that’s wonderful! Since starting a book blog, I’ve definitely found myself experimenting with new genres and seeking out different sorts of works. It’s a great way to read beyond your normal scope and become a part of a community!

Happy first birthday, a little late! I agree…book blogging wouldn’t be nearly as fun or rewarding without the community. Here’s to many more years!
