8 years of blogging!

Yep, dear blog readers, today is 8 years since I started blogging at Stuck-in-a-Book. Every year it comes around more quickly, and I seem to be running through the numbers at a rate of knots.

Thanks so much to all the lovely people who read this, particularly those who have been reading for many years. I really do appreciate your comments, emails, links, and friendship – and, of course, your blogs (for those of you who blog).

As you read this, I am off on a ‘plane to America, visiting my friend in Washington DC. While there I am planning on meeting up with FIVE bloggers, three of whom I haven’t met before. I’m not back til the 20 April, so you may hear their reports before you hear mine – and I am intending on returning to Blighty with bagfuls of books, of course.

See you in a couple of weeks!

    Congratulations Simon! I enjoy reading your thoughts about books so much. You're such a perceptive, dedicated reader you're a great inspiration.
    Enjoy America! Since it's Washington you're going to I assume one of the people you'll be seeing is Thomas. What books are you packing for the plane?

    Congratulations on eight years. I started following Stuck in Book only three years ago and have been slowly reading back through your early posting years. A brilliant way to keep me from my chores and list of things to do. I'm a fairly new book blogger come on over – http://www.bookbarmy.com. (I shared your wonderful post about the hapless gentleman locked in Waterstones.)

    Welcome to The States Simon. See me waving to you from New York? I'm right over here just to the north. Many congratulations on 8 years blogging and on your new venture SNB. I don't now how I ever did without them. Thanks and have a wonderful visit to DC.
