Wrap Up (The One Where It's Been Two Years & Also A Belated Merry Christmas)

Yesterday was both Christmas Day (Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates and Happy Holidays to everyone else) and the two-year anniversary of this here blog. I'm so proud of where it's at and I love the community that I'm a part of because of this endeavor. Like, literally, when I think about how lucky I am to have the friends I've made and been introduced to the books I have been because of this community it brings a happy tear to my eye. Sure, it encourages me to spend more than I should on books, but really, that's not the worse vice one can have. The book community and this blog has, in many instances, been my safety net. If I'm not feeling good, or too depressed to pick up a book, I'll turn to twitter or tumblr and just interact quietly but it often does help me pick myself back up.

I still can't believe it's been two years! That's so crazy! The hope is that it lasts even longer, too, and I have no intention of slowing down any time soon.

Before I get into the regular wrap up part of this post I want to remind everyone about the giveaway I have running right now (original post here) which will also be down at the bottom of the post for your ease. The original goes more in depth into the rules but, basically, I don't want anyone to forget that international is okay and you can actually win multiple books if it works out that way for you. So, seriously, enter! I want to give back to the community! The giveaway ends the last day of the year, which is why I started it early last week.

In next week's wrap up I'm going to be talking about all the changes coming to the blog within the first week of the new year. Things around here won't look too blatantly different but the way things run will certainly be different. I'm looking forward to it, though, and I think it will only serve to make this blog better!
