Third Anniversary of StephanieVandrickReads
Today is the third anniversary of this blog. I have written 728 posts, on roughly 400 books and 100 authors, along with a couple of dozen lists and numerous posts on various reading experiences. I have written about old favorites and brand new books, mostly novels but also memoirs, other nonfiction, poetry, art books, newspapers and magazines. Several friends and family members have been kind enough to contribute guest posts. My topics have included libraries, bookstores, family book stories, reading to children, issues of gender and class in the book world, giving books, keeping books (or not), book covers, book blurbs, book reviews, book prizes, banned books, e-readers, literary cities (San Francisco, New York, London, Paris), vacation reading, reading groups, and many more. It has been a labor of love for me, a lifelong constant reader, to write these posts about books, authors, and reading experiences and issues. I am so appreciative of those who have let me know that they have read and enjoyed the blog, and have shared their thoughts on books and other topics. Please keep letting me know your thoughts on these posts and on your own book recommendations and reading experiences, either by commenting here, or by emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
