And what a year it has been. Over 200 posts. Visitors from around the US and the world. A blog where my world – books, libraries, teaching, reading and children – came together. I truly cannot believe that I pulled this off.
To my friends, colleagues, and library book nerds near and far – THANK YOU for reading what I write. THANK YOU for your kind words. THANK YOU for inspiring me to post on days when I just want to be a couch potato. THANK YOU, ultimately, for caring. Because I do care – passionately – about the work that I do as a librarian.
And – because my lovely children, J&H, can’t imagine a birthday without presents – I have a gift for you: a book giveaway!
Take a look at these goodies. The winner may choose one of the following: the *signed* in 2004 copy of Walter Wick’s Can You See What I See? Cool Collections, the advance readers copy of Star Wars Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan!, or the *signed* copy of Ally Condie’s Reached. Enter via comment which book you’d most like to win, and I’ll email one winner. Entries end Saturday, 9/27 at midnight PST.
And again, thank you. Birthdays are lovely, but they’re even better with friends.
