As my first anniversary is waiting around the corner, I have taken a closer look at my first year of blogging (minus one week).
In 2009 I have read and reviewed 117 books.
I have written 397 blog posts (in 358 days).
I have had more than 17,000 guests (SiteMeter since medio February). Thank you to each and every one of you – I appreciate you very much!
