Blogiversary!



Yesterday marked the third anniversary of Lesley's Book Nook!

3 years

480 posts

180 book reviews

114,691 hits

2 spin-off blogs (cooking and photography)

Countless new friendships

Blogging has been such a rewarding experience and, although there have been times when I've felt too busy to post, I can't imagine my life without my blog and blogmates. Thank you all for helping to enrich my life. I've enjoyed each and every enthusiastic comment, felt each tender virtual hug in times of need, and am grateful for every one of you.

Good friends
and
good books ~
things
we want to
hang on to
forever.

If someone said to me,
how did you spend your life?
I'd have to say,
lying on the sofa reading.
~Fran Lebowitz


I still find each day too short for
all the thoughts I want to think,
all the walks I want to take,
all the books I want to read,
and all the friends I want to see.
~ John Burroughs

    Carrie K. wins a copy of any book I've reviewed here on my blog! Just send me the title you'd like to receive, along with your snail mail address, and I'll get it in the mail early next week. You can email me the info at lscher at neb dot rr dot com. Congrats!

    Kay - Yes, the Picoult book is very good!

    Nan - I actually began blogging on February 13th. You'll see that I began this post with "Yesterday marked the third anniversary..."
