My 4th Blogoversary and Giveaway


Four years ago I started this blog for my professional development at work and I am so glad I stuck with it.  Books are my passion; otherwise, I don't think I would have been able to stick with this blog through the ups and downs of my life these past four years.  

I also am so thankful to have met so many bookish friends through my blog, awesome people in publishing/marketing, and more importantly, those of you who are reading this post.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me.

I have seen so many book blogs come and go these past four years. I can honestly say that four years later, I am still excited to write reviews, read comments, and simply gush over books with all of you. 


Some fun facts about Confessions of a Book Addict:  

These past four years I have written over 350 reviews, over 1,030 posts, read over 380 books, and tried my hand at NaNoWriMo three times. (I finally won this year!)  

Traveling is also a huge passion of mine. These past four years, I have traveled to Key West (twice!), IrelandItalyOuter BanksJamaica (twice!), Sanibel Island, and of course, the shore!  

Lastly, my top five most popular posts of all time are:
      
       *Book Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth
       *2012 Beach Reads and Summer Reading List
       *Book Review: We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han
       *2011 Beach Reads and Summer Reading List
       *Book Review: The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen


I want to celebrate by hosting an international giveaway!  One lucky winner can spend up to $25 at the Book Depository on books of his/her choice; just be sure that Book Depository can ship to where you live.  Please refer to my giveaway rules and the deadline is January 3, 2014.  Thank you again to all my readers and Happy Holidays!
