I can hardly believe it's been one whole year since I started A Room with Books. Then again, with everything that's happened sometimes it's hard to believe it's only been a year. Let's go over some of the highlights:
--I went from having about 5 books of my own to needing to acquire a new bookcase because they were overflowing
|And the new one's almost full now :P|
-- I've discovered tons of new blogs and made quite a few awesome bloggy friends including:
- Erika of Rescue Reads
- Erica of The Book Cellar
- Katie of Katie's Book Blog
- Heidi of Bunbury in the Stacks
- Meredith of Mint Tea and a Good Book
- The Ladies of Read. Write. Ramble.
and so many more that I couldn't possibly ever list them all :P
-- I've gotten over 150 GFC followers, 150 RSS followers, and 240 some Twitter followers :D
|Chibird says it perfectly|
-- Attended my first signing (Kimberly Derting) and book launch (for Revived by Cat Patrick).
|Me and Cat Patrick :]|
-- Gotten @s from authors on Twitter that thank me for reviewing their books (I know, surreal, right?!)
-- Was featured on Blogger Behind the Book at Greads
|You can go here if you want to|
check it out :]
10) Reignited my Middle Grade love.
11) Participated in my first readathon (and discovered I'm and even slower reader than I thought).
...I should probably stop listing now since I could keep going :P Plus, that's only strictly blogging stuff. That's not to mention all the crazy things that have happened in my personal life this past year!
And now you guys are probably wanting to just get right down to the good stuff, so let's do that. I have a box full of mix-n-match ARCs and finished copies that I want to give away. It's completely random, but I figure that makes it all the more fun :]
Here's a pic:
There's a box of books (I won't list them all, but hopefully when you click and see the bigger image you can tell what they are) a kitten bookmark, magnetic cupcake bookmarks, and a print by the illustrator who did the artwork in The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls.
The box of stuff is US only, but if you're international we can work something out. Maybe a Book Depository book?
