A milestone!





My book blog has now had 10,000 views!  I am so pleased, and just hope that at least some of the reviews have resulted in a bit more recognition for the writers.  The main reason I started the blog was so I could help promote books I love (especially those that are as yet little known) and be a more effective reviewer in my role as part of Rosie Amber's Book Review Team.  I started it after my December reading binge and it got kind of addictive, I have to say.  

All reviews have tags at the bottom - if you want to see any other books in a certain genre, about a particular subject or with a certain star rating, etc, just click on a tag and it will bring up all the others that are tagged similarly. 

Want to see which books have been viewed the most, in the two months since the blog started?  Here are the top five: 

Inkker Hauser Part 2: Literastein by Phil Conquest, with 737 views



The Dead Lands by Dylan Morgan, with 631 views



The Great Law of Peace by Zoe Saadia, with 445 views



A Single Step by Georgia Rose, with 426 views


The Turning of the World by John Privilege, with 424 views



Happy reading!

    1. I love looking at the 'ten most viewed' - it's interesting to see how it changes, and which ones pop up at the bottom, which says to me that people do browse it a bit too - all very pleasing!

  3. Congrats on the milestone!

    (I wish, wish, wish there was a way to subscribe to this by email. Blogger hates to let me on until I've completely signed out of all other sites, and even then it keeps spitting out objections. I'm just sayin...)

    1. We all have to start somewhere, Gavin - this is after about three and a half years of building up the old online presence, it didn't happen overnight! Good luck - and don't forget to take part in #MondayBlogs and #SundayBlogShare!

  5. That's a bit more than awesome, Terry. Without your help, I'd still be poking at my Kindle like those chimps at the start of 2001. Then bashing it to pieces with a handy chunk of bone. Thank you for not telling me to piss off when I left that sarky comment for you on Twitter! Good luck with the new book and the blog.

    Best.

    1. You're welcome, John. And it was a sarky though fair comment, which was why I explained myself to you! I just wish I could get more people to read your fab book. I shall continue to force them!
