Apparently it’s my blog’s birthday

Where have I even been right?

I don’t have an answer but certainly not here. Fall isn’t normally so busy for me! I usually have way more time to read and blog and chill. These days I’m forced to be social which is exhausting.

I’m trying to cobble together some posts but it’s definitely been a challenge. Not because I haven’t read anything worth discussing – I have. Girl at War, Killing Monica, The Martian, and The Hiltons: The True Story of an American Dynasty have all been post worthy. And I swear I will post about some of those soon.

Today though, we celebrate.

It’s been four years since I started this blog!

Four years of blogging about books! Four years of talking about books with other readers! Four years of connecting with other book bloggers who have introduced me to books I probably never would have looked for, who have challenged me to read broader and more diversely.

I started blogging about books because I wanted to talk about books all the time. I mean, I pretty much do that in real life but my audience isn’t always so appreciative. That’s more like “yeah yeah, Eva. We get it. You read all the time.” But you guys, you guys get it. You encourage it.

Blogging has given me permission to embark on The Great Harry Potter Re-Read and the Green Gables Readalong. It’s allowed me to chat with authors and read their work before it’s been released – a real thrill for this hardcore book nerd. I will happily die crushed under the weight of all the incredible books that currently live with me.

The book blogging community is filled with some of the most brilliant, wonderful, amazing and creative people. I’ve long admired so many of you and continue to get a thrill from the interactions with you all. If you’ve recently started following me or you’ve been here for a while, I thank you. I started this blogging thing for myself but it’s so much better knowing I have some peeps to share it with.

  1. Happy 4th Blirthday, Paperback Princess! So glad I found you (maybe about a year ago?).

    I had to laugh at this: “I started blogging about books because I wanted to talk about books all the time. I mean, I pretty much do that in real life but my audience isn’t always so appreciative. That’s more like “yeah yeah, Eva. We get it. You read all the time.” But you guys, you guys get it. You encourage it.”
    This is me! I always have to actually stop myself from talking about books, so people will want to continue being around me. It’s hard work!
    Here’s to many more years of reading and blogging! 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday!! I love your blog and am so glad that you love to talk books. It’s nice to know there are other bookish people out there like me. 🙂 I hope you continue blogging about books for many more years to come. 🙂

  3. Happy Blogoversary! I always enjoy reading your reviews, and you have put some books on my radar that I probably wouldn’t have known about without you. You know that a 4-year anniversary calls for a book-buying binge, right? RIGHT?!?

  4. Happy Blog Birthday! Glad you’re celebrating with new books! I am dying to get Career of Evil! I’m 1/2 way through the Lake House almost and its very good -VERY LONG. But good!

    I hope you can recover from the exhaustion of socializing and lead me to some new books too!

  5. Happy blogiversary! You were the first book blogger friend I made and I’ve loved this journey with you and your bookishness in my life! It’s nice having others who “get it.” Thank God for the Internet! So, I’m using one of your lines here and linking this post for this weekend’s Sunday Sentence! Stay tuned.
