Pour a Mug of Hot Tea. . .

Because Girl Knows Books has passed 50 followers!!!

(You can pour whatever you like, really. You don’t even have to pour anything. Feel free to eat candy, though.)

You all are. . .here. I’m not even sure where many of you came from. Were you randomly surfing the Internet? Were you really, really bored? Are you from Hogwarts?

No, seriously, are you from Hogwarts?

I know 50 may seem like a really paltry achievement, but I’m still pretty happy. 2013 was a really great year for the blog. I got to go to Book Expo America, I spoke about blogging and books to a great class of 6th graders, and I got a number of new subscribers. (And I have a new record for most views in a day! Yay!) I also like to think I’ve gotten better at reviewing and just writing in general, instead of saying the exact same thing about each book, because BLEGH.

Thank you so much to everyone who has visited, subscribed, commented, or recommended the blog to somebody. Hopefully 2014 will be even better. So pull up a chair, put some sugar in your tea, because here we go again. 🙂

. . .Too cheesy?

P.S. Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! Here’s a video of the restored version of the movie THE MARCH, a film by James Blue. It’s a really amazing and interesting thing to see. (Unfortunately, Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech is silent due to a copyright restriction. But the movie is still fantastic!)

  1. Hello, Girl K.B. Congratulations on passing 50 followers. To tell the truth, I’m surprised you don’t have 500, because your blog is great. I wondered whether my publisher ever sent you a review copy of my book, Lily and Taylor? If you received it, and have chosen not to review it, that’s fine: your prerogative. But if you never got it, would you let me know so I can ask them again to send you one? elise.m@videotron.ca. Thanks!

    1. Hi Elise! I know my mom was in touch with you, but I wanted to say thank you in person for the compliment. It’s very kind of you to say that. 🙂

  2. Share more reasons for mugs of hot tea please. I now have one with every new review you post. If you ever post three in one day I may need to switch to decaf so I can stop bouncing off the walls. I find wall bouncing counter-productive, don’t you? Could you maybe review a book about boats please? I like boats way too much.

    1. I shall keep an eye out! I’ll see what I can do. 🙂 And yes, I certainly find wall bouncing counterproductive. I’ll try to find more reasons for cups of hot tea soon. Anyway, thank you for your kind words! Happy March!
