HAPPY BLOGGING BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
Yaaay!! I'm one years old today!!
Last year, I set out with trepidation - really, my heart was pounding, I was almost sweating, would anyone answer me? Would anyone read what I had to say, would anyone care? Was anyone out there?
Well, I got my answer, and I have been blessed this past year, with all of YOU, dear Gentle readers. My blog overflows with your comments and witticisms and wonderful humor and shared love of books. I really had no idea who was out there, what kind of book readers and blogs were available. I couldn't have asked for a better blogging community to share. Some of you are becoming friends. We have shared books, thoughts, memes, jokes, laughter, tears, I've won two giveaways (thank you Carl and Kim L!), I've participated in many interesting challenges, and most of all, I've discovered the love of books really does cross water, culture, language, and we do end up speaking the same language - the love of books.
So I share some yummy cake with you - Nigella Lawson's Chocolate Cloud cake, which is as dark chocolate and delicious with real whipped cream as it looks (and I know, I made it in the spring!) - here, sit down, have a piece, here's a cup of tea (I have several, even herbal), let's eat and talk about our favourite books of all time, and share some thoughts on autumn and good ghost stories....let's talk about books.
