Happy Anniversary



Missed it! Well, that might be the first time ever that I missed the anniversary. Well, I didn't really miss it. I realized at 10:00 PM that it was Jan. 6. Eleven years ago I wrote the first post for the blog that would eventually become Lesa's Book Critiques.

Since I missed the date, I just want to say thank you for allowing me a few minutes of your time every day to talk about books. If you've been reading my blog for most of those eleven years, thank you. And, if you just discovered my blog in the last couple days, couple weeks, or months, thank you.

I hope you always come back to check to see what book I'm talking about, or what books others are reading. If today's book doesn't interest you, maybe tomorrow's will.

Thank you for reading with me!

Thanks, Jen!

Congrats on reaching another milestone!

Lesa said...

Thank you, Bill. And, how many years have you been writing about mysteries as well as writing mysteries? I have a long way to go. Thank you, though.

Happy Anniversary! I was glad to discover your blog (belatedly) last year and to meet you in Raleigh.

Many, many more!

Happy anniversary, Lesa! 11 years. Wow! I love hearing what you have to say about all books, whether I read them or not. Hugs.

Happy Anniversary, Lesa!

Happy Anniversary Lesa, and many more! Thank you for introducing me to so many new authors.

Kaye Barley said...

Eleven Years! Has it been that long, really?! Lesa's Book Critiques has become part of my daily routine - mine and a lot of others as well. Thank you, sweetie, for all you do!

Happy blog anniversary, Lesa! I have enjoyed your comments and recommendations so much over the years and you've introduced me to many authors! Thank you!

Margie Bunting said...

What would we be without you, Lesa? You've steered us in the direction of numerous books we probably wouldn't have found otherwise with your outstanding reviews that contain just enough detail to whet our appetites. And you've become a friend to many by interacting with us when we comment. Those who haven't been fortunate enough to meet you in person should know that you are exactly as you appear in writing--charming, friendly, and with a ready and contagious laugh. Keep 'em coming, Lesa!

Lesa said...

Let's see, in the last couple years I was lucky enough to meet Bill, Jeff, Kaye and Margie. And, I had already met Kay. It truly is a small world. And, thanks to our books and shared reading habits, it's even smaller. Thanks for becoming friends via my blog. Hugs to all of you!

Diane said...

Congratulations!
I should have kept track of the number of new authors you have introduced me to. Our taste is similar enough that I do try and get hold of most mysteries you really like. And FictFact too is keeping me well organized.
Didn't start nine years ago with you but I'm sure it was shortly after. And if I do not get to visit everyday I always go back to any I missed while on vacation. Please never stop blogging.

Lesa said...

Oh, Diane. That's the nicest note! Thank you. I love talking about books, so I hope the blog goes on, too. It's so nice to hear from several of you that I've introduced you to new authors. Thank you!

Happy blog anniversary, Lesa!
I discovered you only three years ago, but like Diane, have discovered countless new authors and authors new to me through your efforts. So thank you and congratulations on such a long run.

Grandma Cootie said...

Happy Anniversary. Checking your blog has become a daily habit, enjoy it very much.

Lesa said...

Thank you, Rob & Grandma Cootie. I hope you continue to come back & read the blog.

Sharon said...

Congratulations and thank you for continuing to blog. I enjoy reading your reviews.

Beth Hoffman said...

Happy Anniversary, Lesa! Thanks for your wonderful friendship, and, for introducing me to many books I would have otherwise missed. *Cheers* to many more years!

Carol N Wong said...

Happy Anniversary. Oh no! I didn't fund you until later on and missed so many of your posts! That is such a long run and I always look forward to your posts.

Lesa said...

Thank you! I'm so grateful for your friendships and the sharing of love of books. I hope it continues for years!

Thank you, Reine!
