Thinking and Inking is now a year old (!) A year ago, I meandered my way into book blogging, both a blessing and a curse. The curse is mainly the fact that a vast proportion of my money has gone into my TBR pile (the bottom of which I’m unlikely to see), and that I’m now frantically juggling books for my A-Level courses and the books that I actually want to read. On the upside though, it’s been an absolute joy writing, reading and talking to my fellow bibliophiles – enough said!
I decided to celebrate by starting One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, which is brutally fascinating. (How does a book lover party? She doesn’t. She sits at home with a book and cries over fictional characters.)
I just want to say thanks to all of you who have liked, commented and followed. There are a few people who know me in real life and have kept shtum, and for that I am eternally grateful. (My parents still don’t know that this blog exists.) There are also the regulars, who constantly light up my dashboard (and my day) with their comments – I’m still surprised that anyone wants to talk to me, in all frankness. There are people who’ve been with me right from the start with Cruising and Perusing; how you managed to read that without wanting to crawl into a hole and die escapes me. Thank you one and all!
Look out for a series of celebratory posts in the next week – I was thinking of doing a Q & A, so if you have any questions, or any other posts you’d want to see, drop me a line!
(also I trashed the other birthday post (which was exactly the same as this) because for some reason it was apparently published on the 11th? But today is the 15th?)
