A Look Back



What I was reading this time last year: Partials by Dan Wells, and the sequel is coming soon! So excited! This series also has a  "middle ebook" which I'm quite tempted by, I guess we'll see.. maybe it comes up cheap or free on Amazon!

What I was blogging about this time last year: Downton Abbey of course! Remember that time I started using old language with my kids? Yeah, that was funny.

What I was reading this time five years ago: The Story of My Life by Helen Keller, which was awesome! I remember walking on the treadmill while reading this one. I was so impressed with her beautiful language, all that after not have language for so long!

What I was blogging about this time five years ago: I got my first author comment on my blog exactly five years ago! And that led to getting my first ARC and doing my first blog tour later that year. I was ecstatic  And all of that led to my learning about local authors and getting out of my shell just a bit to try and get to know them better.

What I was reading this time ten years ago: A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck. Loved this book. Loved the grandma! Loved that I got to meet this author a few years later!

What I was NOT blogging about this time ten years ago: Ten years ago we were deep into the planning of our trip over to England and Denmark! Ah, fun times that was!

What do you see when you look back? Is it a good view? :)

  2. How fun! I wish I knew you 10 years ago. I don't have a postcard from Denmark! haha I got your letter yesterday. I will see what I can do with watching Buffy. I had all ready sent you something when this arrived, but I will try to write back! I might even have some stationary around here... I have mostly been doing postcards!

  4. Oh, fun post! It amazes me that you know what you were reading ten years ago. I have no idea! I still think about the old fashioned language incident. Hee hee! Love it!

  5. Wow!! I'm not sure I could remember what I was reading 10 years ago! I might be able to refer back to my blog for the 5 years, but 10 years seems so long ago!! :)
