Thank you and Welcome!
So, a thank you is in order to all of Dan’s followers. I just happened to check my blog stats today and was pretty convinced I was either being hacked or getting spammed. To put it in context, since starting this blog in Feb, I have generally gotten about 50 site visits a day. Today we have had over 4,000 site visits. So, thank you for the birthday gift. Dan is clever, sneaky, and almost gave me a heart attack.
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about — For my birthday (today), my husband asked his readers to stop by and visit the blog. Apparently, he has some very loyal and kind readers!
So a big welcome to all the new followers! I feel overwhelmed, but I hope you enjoy our book blog. I really look forward to your comments and suggestions. Of course, this gives me an excuse to bug Dan about contributing an occasional book review.
A little about us for those of you who came over here from Term Sheet: My co-blogger and I mostly read and review literary fiction. She will also post some reviews on dystopian fiction and I’ll will also review some fantasy. Diversity in terms of gender, race, and ethnicity are important factors in the books I pick, so expect to see a range of literature reviewed. My 4 year-old and I also review picture books once a month. And, at the beginning of every month we select a book for a “love it” or “hate it” poll. I have to admit that I’m quite embarrassed by June’s selection because it’s not the kind of book I’d generally feature on this blog.
I appreciate all of you (old and new followers). Thanks for the nice birthday gift! If you haven’t done so already, please introduce yourself and let us know what kinds of books you enjoy reading.
