Happy 3rd Blogiversary To Me! - #Giveaway

I can't believe it has been 3 years since I started this blog, as a way to share my love of books with a wider audience than just myself! 

After 3 years I can say that I am proud to be a book blogger, that I am still an avid and real reader that just enjoys sharing my thoughts on books with others. Having been a quick and enthusiastic reader since a child I generally have a good feel whether I will enjoy a book before I even start it, giver or take those I buy or am attracted to on cover alone.

Blogging really has changed my life so far, I am now for the first time for years happy with what I do for work having in September set up Rachel's Random Resources - where I am predominately organising blog tours for many authors,  enabling their books to be seen by a far wider audience than I could do with my blog alone.

As of last week that is now my full time job which is scary as its now all down to me, so I really do hope you will continue to support me both as a blogger but also as an organiser.

As a result of blogging too I am always utterly excited when I get invited to fabulous book events, and in the past month alone I've been to 3 launch parties plus the Spring Blogger Evening at Simon & Schuster meeting countless amazing authors, bloggers, publishers.   Despite being shy (or at least quiet) my whole life I rarely feel nerves going to any of these events now, and can just about talk to long as in small groups!

You may have noticed that I haven't really done any features of any variety really and is purely due to time constraints as I am still getting ideas, but I will have coming up in June/July is my Bookish World Cup feature month that I hope you will enjoy.

I'm still loving blogging as much as I always have done,  so hopefully will be able to see you back here same time next year, to celebrate the 4th year. 

Let me just once again thank everyone in the book community that has supported my blog, my business, and me generally over the past 3 years, I truly appreciate each and everyone one of you.  I love reading other bloggers truly honest reviews,  taking part in blog blitzes and blog tours and generally helping to spread the word about various books to the wider community. 

And to celebrate my 3rd Blogiversary, I am running a giveaway for a random book from one of my book lucky dip bags, made up of unread books (1 cover is creased I apologise), that I have acquired from various places but for whatever reason would rather give you the chance to read.  Real mixed bag (forgive the pun) so hope you will like your book if you win!

And if that isn't enough giveaway for you - then please do check out the Book Giveaway Bank I set up as a small directory of some book giveaways that any author or blogger is welcome to submit to, and of course discover other great competitions.
