I reached 100,000 visitors on my blog just after 5:30 PT tonight. Thank you!
To be perfectly honest, I probably reached that number about a month ago, because I didn't install the counter immediately, and there was a lengthy period of time when the counter wasn't working. But, I'm celebrating right now!
If you are the first person to comment here, please give me your email address, and I'll contact you to send you a free ARC or book from my closet. I'll give you a choice of three or four titles.
And, thank you to everyone who reads my blog, comments, enters the contests. And, naturally, thank you to the authors and publishers who send me books. And, from all of us to the authors - thank you for your interviews, your time, and, most of all, your wonderful books.
And, Jim? Thank you for putting up with all the time I spend on this blog, because I love it.
It's a pleasure to share my love of reading with all of you.

It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library.
I will not review self-published books, and, at the present time, do not accept books in e-book format.
