Happy 4th!



This blog celebrates its 4th anniversary tomorrow! Has it been really 1,461 days and 530 posts since I started KyusiReader? It doesn't feel like it. Honestly, it feels longer. I think of my reading life now as being divided into two main time periods: before and after the blog.

There are days though when I feel that I should just stop blogging and just read and read and read. It's nice to go offline every now and then, no? Then there are times when I just have to share my thoughts about what I'm reading, and that's when I make the posts.

I can still recall the circumstances of why I started blogging. I was bored to death. And since Blogger was a free service, I thought, why the heck not? I never thought for a second that other people would be interested to read about my boring musings about books and reading.

So happy anniversary to you, my beloved online repository of my random book-ish thoughts. And thank you, dear reader, for the wonderful 4 years. It's been one great blogging experience after another.

Happy Anniversary! I'll be celebrating my 4th this year too but having a long blogging slump right now. Hope I get back into it soon.

Happy Birthday, KyusiReader. I also thought of stopping my blog, but I don't think I can entirely give it up due to habit(book blog is two years old but I have other dead blogs way back in 2005). We're looking forward to more of your posts. :)
