This is the advent book tree I made for Gage this year and has nothing to do with my blogiversary, but I think it looks bookish and festive! I don’t have any big insights to share of my eight years posting here. According to my stats, this is my 1961st post! Wow. I had no idea how fulfilling and time-consuming blogging would be when I started and the years have flown by. Seriously, it does seem like a throwaway to say that, but when I look at how long I’ve known some of you I can hardly believe it.
I usually give away something to mark the occasion and this year is no different. My two favorite books that first year were
Stephen King’s On Writing. This is what I said, I loved this book. I loved the mix of humor, truth, detail, and brevity. I have been charmed by a horror writer and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. This is what I said, I loved this book. It was psychological, political, philosophical and just plain fun.
I’m going to give them both away. Just leave me a comment and tell me which one (you can say both) you want. I’ll draw names at the end of the month. Open internationally.
If you’ve already read these and want me to send them to a friend if you win that’s okay too. Thanks for supporting my blogging habit over the years! It’s only because of the friends I’ve made that I’ve made it this long 🙂
