When I first started this blog for professional development at work, I never thought I would continue with it and I am so glad I did. Thanks so much for sticking with me and making this hobby worthwhile. I truly appreciate it.
And to celebrate, I am hosting a giveaway. I am giving away one copy of any of the books pictured below. They just happen to be my favorite books that I reviewed in the past three years. If I picked a book that is part of a series and you've read that book already, feel free to pick another book from that same series.
This giveaway is open internationally or wherever the Book Depository ships. Please refer to my giveaway rules. The deadline is February 16th and good luck! Thanks again for helping me celebrate three awesome years.
