Wordsmithonia is 9 years Old! But One of You Gets the Present!

When I wasn't looking, Wordsmithonia turned nine years old earlier this month. It's been a journey that has seen my interest and energy wane over the years, but I've never felt as if I was really ready to give it up for good. I've been slowly getting back into the rhythm, and I'm eternally grateful to those who have stuck by the blog over the years.

In appreciation for the love and support you have shown me over the years, I've decided to do a giveaway in celebration of the nine year journey I undertook with no prior forethought of what I was embarking upon. I've reviewed a lot of books over the years, and I'm letting one of you go through my review list and pick any book you want. All you need to do is leave a comment with the book title of your choice and your email address. I'll pick a winner by random draw on 08/15/2017.

The book will come from either B&N or Book Depository.

Thank you once again, from the bottom of my heart, for all the support you've given over the years. I'll never be able to properly express my gratitude.

Congratulations on nine years, Ryan! I'm not too far behind at seven.

Do you still have 31 Bond Street by Ellen Horan? I thought that sounded good when you reviewed it back in 2011 and I never did get around to tracking it down.

Happy Anniversary!!!

Do you have any of those torchwood books left? I just checked the list of books you've reviewed over the years and saw a few Torchwood books. And for some reason I've never picked up a Torchwood book before. I don't know why... awesome series on TV and with it no longer on you need something to fill the void.

Wonderful! 9 years! An accomplishment in itself. Happy celebrating! 🎉 I've been doing it for 10 years and it doesn't seem that long ago. I'm putting down The Secret Garden because it's the one book that is missing from my childhood that I want to read with my daughter:

Thanks for the giveaway.

First of all, congrats on nine years! Time sure does fly. My nine years is coming up on Saturday. I can't believe it. Just think, next year...a milestone. 10 years!

I was so glad to see you back at blogging again. I have several of your posts saved in my email for when I get a chance to come by, read and comment. I always enjoy your reviews.

Thanks so much for the giveaway. My choice is Bedbugs by Ben H. Winters. Email: truebookaddict AT gmail DOT com

Again, congrats on your blog's nine year birthday!

Congrats on your 9 years! I'm currently in my ninth year of blogging too. And yes, I went through moments of my interest and energy waning over the years too. But it's so much a part of who I am now. Reading and blogging about books...

I would choose The Disappearing Spoon. I've always had my eye on that book and I liked your review of it. breezagirl at gmail dot com
