4yr blogiversary banner

My blogiversary snuck up on me this year. I totally forgot about it until earlier this week.
Workaday Reads turns 4 years old on Feb 16! That’s 4 years, 700 books (technically 697 but you’ll excuse me for rounding) and 1728 posts. Sounds like a celebration is in order.

I decided to celebrate with a giveaway. Obviously.

But first, a little reflection on the past year.

In the past (Year 1, Year 2, Year 3), I did a formal style reflection, but this year I’m not doing it. Mostly because I feel like I could copy and paste from last year.

When I look back over the past year, I realize that nothing much has changed from the year before. I have the same look, same feel, and pretty much the same types of posts. I’m not sure if I’m in a groove or a rut, but there is something about the sameness that is comforting. This blog has become a definite habit, and it’s hard to imagine a time without it.

I feel like blogging has made me a more critical reader as I’m always thinking about how I feel about a book as I read it, and after I finish it. Yes, I still have books that almost immediately fade from memory, but there are also books that really stick with me.

Overall, this past year has been a lot of fun, and a lot of work, but it’s all worth it. I look forward to another year of reading and blogging. This really is something that I do for me, and I love it a lot.


I’m giving away your choice of either up to $30 worth of books from The Book Depository, or a $30 Amazon gift card. All you have to do is obey the Rafflecopter form below.

  1. Happy blogiversary! Thank you for the giveaway x

  2. That’s a PHENOMENAL number of books! AMAZING! Do you keep them all?

    • Absolutely not! I only have a very small selection of keep books, like 15. The rest I read and get rid of. Unless they’re ebooks, in which case they’re on my computer, but deleted from my ereader after reading.

    • Thanks! I love blogging, although sometimes I wish I recorded the reviews I make up in my head as I lay in bed. I seem to forget them when I wake up and have to rewrite them, and I know they’re never as good. lol
