One Thousand Posts

One thousand posts! I never even thought I would have kept this blog going so long. Thank you to everyone that has read the one thousand posts as well!

New Year. Means new challenges, new books, new projects and new resolutions.



Trisha Ashley has a new novel coming up in 2017 and this blog will be part of the tour. As you may or may not know, I am a big fan of her stories and really looking forward to reading this. 

Hundred is the number of books I am aiming for in 2017.

One hundred and one books read in 2016. Apparently that is 31,198 pages. There will a Books of 2016 post coming up soon.

Unfinished craft projects. I have a number and I need to get some finished, if only to find some space back in my house.

Swimming continues. I have gone from twice a week to three times, as I really was not enjoying one of the other exercise classes.

A few changes to the blog are in order. I have got rid of a few of the pages at the top, in terms of keeping lists of authors and their works. It was becoming too time consuming and I was never going to keep on top of it all and there had to be a line drawn so this was one of them.

Nine Hundred and Ninety Posts have gone before!

Deborah Burrows new book Ambulance Girls  is published on 23 February and I am part of this blog tour as well.

  1. Congratulations! I’ve only recently started following so I’ve got a lot of posts to catch up on. I also have a lot of unfinished craft projects to work through – what kind of crafting do you do?

  2. Congratulations on 1000 posts. Like you I also intend to get down to some crafting this year, I have so many projects on the go. I’m not going to start any more until I complete some!

  3. This is a big achievement, and I don’t know how you fit it all in. I am a GREAT reader, and managed 120 last years, on Kindle, in my hands and recommended by other people. I share books with my daughter, a long-standing friend, and a book group I belong to. I also review for Net Galley, and New Books magazine, and have just reviewed a picture book for Good Housekeeping! with my two lovely grandsons. I also make cards, and attend a craft club once a fortnight, and could do none of this without the support of my wonderful husband Roger, in June this year we will have been married for 46 years, and counting, although we have known each other for 48 years in September. I know how lucky am I?

I love hearing from you so please leave a reply.
