The 80,000 Page View Giveaway!

I'm delighted that my dear old blog has passed the 80,000 page views mark.  Delighted and a little amazed to be honest.

I decided to start Random Things almost three years ago, back in March 2011, not really knowing what I was doing.  I never imagined how much I would enjoy blogging about the books that I read, but I love it, I really do.

My blog has opened so many doors for me.  I've been to publishing parties, to book launches, to publisher's offices.  I've met authors, booksellers and publishers.  I've been part of the Pan MacMillan Reader's Group panel and met some amazing book lovers, bloggers and book group leaders.  My reviews have been quoted in actual, real books and on author websites, and by publishers.

I've been able to read and review much anticipated books before their release date, and have made some great online relationships with authors and publishers.

To say a huge thank you to everyone who has followed the blog, read my reviews, sent lovely comments and generally supported me so far, I'm going to give away a bag of goodies.   There's bound to be at least a couple of books in there, maybe some postcards and book marks, possibly some chocolate?

Complete the Rafflecopter widget to enter - UK entries only I'm afraid.   GOOD LUCK xx

  1. I like the personal insights which you post in addition to your reviews I never find time to post much else apart from reviews which is why you're a much more successful blogger than me!

  8. Congratulations Anne. It's a staggering amount of page views, but others, like me, have gained so much enjoyment from your blog and obviously spread the word far and wide. It's a great achievement but richly deserved, so keep up the sterling work.
