Happy Birthday to me!
It was on April 10th a year ago, in the throes of Finals revision, that I impulsively decided to start writing a literary blog. I was immersed in Middle English (through no choice of my own) and needed a window into kinder literature; books on which I would not be tested. Though I did have some people to share book loves with, I knew there must be even more out there. And perhaps even some people who might want to know my 50 Books You Must Read But May Not Have Heard About...
That was the sketch from my very first entry - and it is more appropriate than ever.
It's been such a joy to have you all come by here over the past year. I don't think Stuck-in-a-Book will ever bring in thousands (I've trotted along at more or less the same, very nice, number of visitors for the past six months or so) but I've made so many friends amongst you. I shan't name you, but you know who you all are, I hope.
It's been a fun year, one of much change in my life - here's to Year Two!
As a birthday present to you all, and to myself, I've collected all the posts which are specifically book reviews, so that they can be found easily... rather than clutter up the column at the side, I shall instead place a link under the 'Home...' bit. That will link to a post which, in turn, links to all the reviews. Look out for it in the next couple of days!
