Three Year Blogoversary! Wow.

Explanation for that gif of Misha Collins dancing like a maniac: That is essentially me when I reaslised I've been reading and writing about books for three years now. It does not seem like that long.

First, some stats. Since starting Death Books and Tea, I have....

  • Posted 711 (712 with this) posts
  • Had 1761 comments made, which I find amazing considering my comment sprees happen once in a blue moon

  • Gained lots of followers. I'm not going to try and count them, because some people follow me in different ways. But I'm amazed that so many of you stick around for my ramblings. Thank you.

I'm sorry, but I can't host a giveaway at the moment. Spent too much money on books (and other things like birthday presents and postage and club fees...but mostly books).  Instead, I'm going to do shoutouts of awesomeness. All these people are people I've either met in real life or have just talked to on the interwebs, and have a lot of love for.
