I’ve been so busy with work and the show and life that I forgot to celebrate this blog’s one year anniversary! Thanks to the miracle of back-dating, it’s totally going to look like I posted this on the 1st… but full disclosure, right?
So let’s take a few minutes and look back on the last year, shall we?
This blog was originally created to compete in the 2nd Annual Cannonball Read. 52 books in 52 weeks. Completed? You bet – on June 23rd, I finished The Magicians and hit that magic number. I also polished off Once Upon A Time IV this spring.
Didn’t do so hot at keeping up with book clubs this year. I joined the Tumblr book club, ReadHard! (and met a delightful Miss Shannon Remley through it), but left because I just didn’t really love the choices they were making. I also tried to start a book club of sorts with someone from school but that fell through – as did most things with that individual.

It’s been a great year of biblioholism. I still spend more money on books than I do on really anything other than food – I think I even outpace my theater spending (and that says something). I hope you’ve found a few cool things if you’ve been reading – and hey, you never know who might drop in (thanks for dropping by, Mr. Jonathan Howard! I can’t wait to read the next Johannes Cabal book! and Ms. Gail Carriger mentioned me because I said I wanted to be best friends based on tea choices. This is absolutely the truth and I love that she agrees). So raise a glass to our second year, if you like. I’ll be here, reading away!
