Crowing, Tooting, or Something Like That

Between multiple vacations and attempting to catch up the few days I was home in between, it snuck past me. I knew it was coming and meant to keep better track. But alas, it didn’t happen. So, in a belated fashion, I thought I’d crow about a significant milestone Books and Pals recently hit.



Two or three weeks ago (July 25, if I counted correctly), we published our 1,000th unique review. That took almost exactly three and a half years. Our very first post, a review of Vicki Tyley’s Brittle Shadows, was published on January 23, 2011. Thanks to all the readers, many who have been with us from the first days and weeks, and to the Pals, past and present, who are the critical piece in being able to review as many books across virtually all genres as we do. And thanks for the chance to toot our own horn.




We’ll now return to our regular programming.
