One Year Ago Today...

...well, sort of. Last year was leap year, so there's no February 29th this year. So it's not exactly a year to the day, but close enough. Anyway...

I created this blog in July of 2007, but I didn't start using it until February of 2008. So I guess this is really my one-year anniversary of writing this blog. It's hard to imagine how much it's evolved in just one year, and how many people actually read what I post. I can honestly say that I'm honored.

So, as a thank you to all of you, I'm launching something new. Every month, there will be at least one book given away on this blog. So check here on the first saturday of every month to find out what it is!

For this month, the book is National Book Award nominee, THE SPECTACULAR NOW by Tim Tharp.

To enter, leave a comment on this post. I'm also going to take a leaf out of Presenting Lenore's book and offer chances for extra entries.
-For one extra entry, post a link to this contest on your website or blog, then let me know about it here.
-For another extra entry, become a follower and then let me know about it here (or let me know you already are a follower).

I'll draw the winner out of a hat on the last saturday of each month. Except for this month, since it already is the last saturday of the month. :) For this month, I'll draw the winner in one week, on the same day I post the book for next month.

Thank you all, once again! And good luck! :)

Congratulations on your blog landmark, Tabitha. A one year anniversary is a major event since few blogs survive the first year.

I've posted an announcement about your achievement on my Spacefreighters blog at http://www.spacefreighters.blogspot.com

Here's to another year of success.

Congratulations!

I'm one of your followers, though I haven't made it formal yet (I suspect I'll have to learn how to do this first). Off to see if I can learn how to do this. So many challenges in this world for technophobes like me, but you wrote the magic words there: "free books".
