Besides numbers what does blogoversary means to me? A lot! I truly love reading, blogging and writing, so it has been very rich and fulfilling year! I have learned a lot, met lots of kind and nice persons: both readers and authors. When I started my blog I did not have many ambitions, but as the blog has grown so has my eagerness. It has been lot of work, but I have loved every minute of it.

Usually, when blogs celebrate blogoversaries, there are big giveaways connected to it. Surprise, ssurprise, there is a giveaway here, too!

What can you win this time?
There will be 5 winners who can pick a book each from The Book Depository.
