Missed blogoversary, replaced with birthday best sellers!

January 10, 2011

It seems that I missed celebrating my blogoversary! I started book blogging during the last week or two of December 2009, and due to the reading/blogging slump that I’ve been in since early December 2010, I totally forgot to post about it having been a year.

Oops!

Well, I seem to be getting back into the swing of things in terms of reading, and so hopefully the blogging will soon come back up to speed and become more regular like it used to be.

In the meantime … enjoy this list of books that were NYT best sellers the week that I was born!
