Double your fun!

Today is my 2 year blogiversary! I wrote my first entry just for the fun of it. I had been scanning other blogs online, like Camy Tang's and decided I wanted to try one of my own. My main goal was to blog about the books I read because I figured I'd like others to know about the good books that were out there. I didn't think though that it would last that long, since most things on the Internet tend to fizzle out quickly.

But I'm still here! I'm up to 241 book reviews, 60 movie reviews, interviewed 6 authors, and had 79 contests! And I plan to keep going. I mean my TBR pile is so huge, it's split between two cities and houses! (ok ok, so when I moved to go to grad school I had to leave half my books at my parent's house due to space)

And not to mention all the friends I've made. Thanks so much to everyone who's visited my site and left comments. They've meant a lot and there what's keeping me going the past 2 years. And thank you also to everyone who nominated and voted for me for Best Christian/Inspirational blog for the Book Blogger Awards. That means so much to met that you actually considered me to be part of the the best of the best. Just like Academy Award nominee Eddie Murphy, I can always say I am a "Best Of" nominee no matter how bad this blog gets (lol, it won't though I promise!) And also to all the lurkers out there, a silent hello to you as well!

When I first started my blog I had a mere 300 books. As of today I have a whopping 1498 books in my collection. Last year I had 892. That's an accumulation of over 600 books in one year! At this rate, if I live to be 90 I'll have over 40,000 books. Oh well I can dream can't I?

Also of note, it's weird to think that next year when I write this post, I'll be married!!!!!

    I'd like to enter this contest. Thank you.
