Blogiversary Celebration and Giveaway!

It's hard to believe I've been blogging about books for two years now! Yes, today is my 2-year Blogiversary. It's amazing how much this blog has grown in the past two years. I now have more than 450 followers, which seems unbelievable to me. THANK YOU for reading and visiting and commenting. I truly appreciate it!

So, to say a proper thank you to all of you who are following My Book Retreat, I'm offering a giveaway of what I consider my favorite book of 2011 so far:


Here's the synopsis I wrote in my review back in August:
Five years ago, politician Merete Lynggaard disappeared and was presumed dead. But she is very much alive, being held captive by an unknown person who obviously wants her to suffer. Carl Mørck is a detective who is trying to recover from an incident that left one colleague dead and another paralyzed. To get him out of the way, he is made head of the new Department Q, charged with reviewing old unsolved case files that involve persons of interest. The first file he picks up is the disappearance of Merete Lynggaard.
And you can read my complete review here: The Keeper of Lost Causes Review.

This giveaway is open to ALL CURRENT FOLLOWERS of My Book Retreat who are 18 years of age and older. In an effort to thank those who have supported me over the past two years, I am NOT including new followers (anyone who starts following after this post is published). NOTE: I do welcome new followers and plan to have more giveaways in the coming weeks, you just can't enter this giveaway.

TO ENTER, fill out the following form. The giveaway ends at 10:00pm EDT on October 23, 2011. The winner will be chosen using random.org, and notified by email.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!
