Happy 6th Birthday to Delighted Reader!

Posted July 15, 2017 by Shari in Giveaways, Random / 58 Comments

It’s hard to believe I opened this blog 6 years ago. My son was 2, my daughters in school and I was a stay-at-home mom needing something to do besides cleaning house. It was a hobby and I didn’t post something every day. Not even close as I can’t read that quickly. I went through a period joining every meme I could find before I started hitting my stride with book tours.

My first review was Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh.
I cringe every time I read that review.

I met Sophia Rose and I was in awe of how fast she could read and pump out those reviews! We add a few other reviewers who have come and gone over the years. Unfortunately they never stayed long. For the past few years it has been mostly Sophia Rose holding us up with me trying to keep up. I am so in debt to her for being my blogging and venting buddy!

Sophia Rose’s first review was Sweet Revenge by Pamela Claire.
She challenged me to write better reviews.

To celebrate I have boxed up two USPS Priority Mail boxes with new and old paperbacks, swag from RAGT17, Β one gift card in each along with at least one autographed book from RAGT17. No duplicates, each in great condition, and various romantic genres. Each box is a mystery to you and to me as I have taped the boxes up and have them waiting for an address to be selected!

Enter below in the Rafflecopter form. Unfortunately, this is only for the US as shipping is very cost prohibitive for the boxes I am sending.

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

Congratulations on 6 years in the blogging world. Many give up after just a few years. I don’t even know how I found you guys, but it’s cool to get 2 different perspectives on books, and you’re always super responsive. I call Sophia “Super” because she just knows a lot of stuff about life in general, which I appreciate. I wish you both many more years! Hugs…RO

Thank you everyone! I have been so busy moving my Mom that I haven’t had a chance to get on my laptop this week. I am off to her house again today, but I wanted to pop in and thank everyone who has supported us in the last 6 years. You gals/guys rock! I hope to get back to blogging tomorrow and reviews flying! But don’t hold me to that as school is also starting soon for my kids. Love you all!
