TODAY IS BLOGGING ANNIVERSARY #6! And (some of) You Get Free Books!

Yep, today is my 6th blogiversary (I didn't make that word up!)!  And in honor of exponentially increasing my readership (ok, there were a couple of new sign-ups in 2016), I'm running a raffle.  It's not really a contest because you don't actually have to know anything.  All you have to do is enter some comment at the bottom of this post.  It can be 1 word.  It can even be insulting.  And after 1 week, I will draw 3 names. Each of the 3 winners will have the option of picking 1 of my top 27, and I will send it to you.  I will even pay the postage!

Take a look at the list, and get your selection ready:

Wish You Well - David Baldacci
Shogun - James Clavell
My Losing Season (non-fiction) - Pat Conroy
South of Broad - Pat Conroy
The Language of Flowers - Vanessa Diffenbaugh

3rd Group (2) -

P.S.  I will provide you winners with your choice of print, e, or audio.  I mean, c'mon.  How accommodating is that?


  1. Congratulations on 6 years. Happy Blogiversary!

    1. Thanks, Beth. It's a pleasure to have CeeCee in the top 27!

  2. Wonderful! Congrats oh blogmaster!
    This is Diana btw. For some reason unknown was my choice for posting, Go figure

    1. Just so you know, the notice to me did have your name attached to it.

    2. Diana, 1 of the 3 winners bowed out (he's my 86-year old cousin and doesn't really read anymore). So in a another random drawing, you ended up with the 3rd golden ticket. Please pick a book from the top 27. I'll get it to you the next Sunday we're both at the Farmers Market.

  3. Happy Blogoversary! 6 years is quite a feat.

  4. I love a good book give away!

  5. Congratulations, Lloyd! No need to enter me.

  6. Lloyd, how have I not been following your blog?! I saw Kathy's tweet about your blogiversary. Congratulations on six years! I'm off to sign up for your blog emails :)

    1. Welcome, Mary. I've been following your blog for a number of years now. I'm glad that you're onboard. And I would GREATLY appreciate any comments you make. Your opinions in any direction will definitely matter.

  7. This is a comment...6 years is a long time. However, I have been putting up with you for over 40 years. What did you do for the first 34 years?
