Now We Are Three

It's my bloggiversary!!! Yes, three years of happy bloggihood, thrilling book indulgification and mind-numbing babble have happened, here. I meant to celebrate by giving books away but I've become a bit of a procrastinator and you'll just have to go for the baby book for the freebie, at the moment. I'm going to try to round up more giveaways in the coming months, just 'cause I luvs ya. Thanks to SuziQ for the cupcake!

Bored? Here's my first blog post.

And, here's my first book review on this blog.

If that's not enough, here's a fun anecdote that has something to do with cactus.

Bookfool, a wee bit beyond 3 in a different age category


  1. Congratulations and happy bloggiversary!!!

  2. Hey! Happy anniversary! I just checked back and found out that my first post was on April 27th, 2007 but I still consider June 1 as my official start.

    Here's to as many more years blogging as you wish to have!


  3. Thanks a million, Lexi!

    Many thanks, CJ!

    Does that mean you didn't start really saying anything till June 1? I remember you were a little unsure, at first.

    Thank you muchly, Carrie!

  4. Happy blogiversary! I would have loved to get a cactus as a gift- some of them have beautiful flowers.

  5. Happy Blogiversary! Three years is quite an accomplishment!

  6. Happy Blogiversary! My 3rd is coming up next month.

    Glad you liked the cupcake :-)

  7. Jeane,

    Thank you! My cacti were very pretty. They're also quite dead. I think you can have the succulents and I'll stick with simpler things like daylilies. :)


    Thank you, m'dear!


    Thanks! I wondered how long you've been around. It seems like I've known you for quite a while. :)

  8. Happy Blogiversary, Bookfool. You're one of the first bloggers I remember from when I started. It's always so fun to read your posts. Hope there's many more years to our friendship.

    Laughed about the cactus. I think whenever a man does anything that "he" thinks is showing he loves us, we need to accept it and cherish it. I don't do well at keeping cacti alive either. It seems they should be among the easiest plant life to keep alive. I don't get it.

  9. Happy blogerversary!!!

  10. Happy bloggiversary!! Your blog makes me happy. Here's to many more years :D

  11. Congratulations on 3 years!

  12. You know, I saw the date was 6/6 yesterday and I thought about you because I remember talking about your "devil" of a bloggiversary. Is it odd that I know the date of your bloggiversary but I don't know the date of my own? LOL!

    Anyhow - happy bloggiversary! Here's to another 3! =D

  13. Happy Blogoversary!! I loved the cactus cat would absolutely eat a cactus, then he'd probably nibble on the pot it came in while rolling around in the potting soil....he's a wild child....

    My first blogoversary is coming up in a couple of weeks. I can't believe I've been plugging away at the blogging for a year, and here I am, a green pup compared to you! Congrats!!

  14. I've never had much success w/cacti either. I think I always give them too much water.

  15. Happy Blogiversary! I love coming here so I hope you're still blogging in another 3 years. Have a great day.

  16. Booklogged,

    Thanks, dear. Same here -- I know we've known each other practically since we the beginning of my blog. I have so enjoyed getting to know you.

    Oh, dear. If cacti are the easiest plants to keep alive, it's no wonder I haven't succeeded with much else. I'm really bummed about my mother's tropical plant, which thrived last summer. I let it freeze in the winter and now it's apparently stone dead. If I could, I'd just replace it but I haven't seen one anywhere. It might be for the best that I can't find one. LOL


    Thank you muchly!


    Why, thank you! That's just about the nicest thing you could say about my blog. Got my warm fuzzies for the day, now. :)


    Many thanks!!

  17. Megan,

    I really never paid attention to my blog anniversary date till I noticed other people celebrating, so no . . . I don't think it's bad that you forgot. And, my devilish day is kind of memorable, now, isn't it? LOL Thanks for the wishes!


    My cats have never been all that naughty (I had two at the time -- we're down to 1, now), so I think they were acting out. They also ruined a bathroom throw rug in the way cats do when they're unhappy. Needless to say, we never hired that teenager to watch our cats, again. Otherwise, we've had no problem. Sounds like you've got a little devil. :)

    Thank you! Green pup, LOL. I like.


    Same here. I think I make their infrequent fake desert storms happen on something akin to a Mississippi basis. That just doesn't work for cacti.


    Aw, that's so sweet. Thank you!!

  18. happy blogiversary! I think I might be 3 this year too, need to go back and look. I always forget around the time of my blogiversary. lol Maybe I need to set an alarm message on my cell phone. lol

  19. Congrats Nancy! Wow three years!

  20. Congratulations on three years! I'm very impressed.

  21. Happy Blogiversary!

  22. Krista,

    I peeked. Your anniversary is in December and, yep, you'll be 3 years old, too! I mean . . . your blog will. LOL I meant to write my anniversary on the calendar, but never bothered.

    Teddy Rose,

    Thank you! :)


    Thanks. Time flies when you're having fun. I enjoy blogging.



  23. Congratulations! And you're aging well!

  24. Gwendolyn,

    Thanks. I try. :)

  25. Happy bloggyversary! Keep up the wonderfulness. You've always been, and will always be, one of my faves.

  26. I look forward to all thrilling book indulgifications and mind-numbing babbles. congrats!

  27. Congrats on three years Bookfool!! Whoopee!! i'm celebrating six years this month so don't forget to sign up for my giveaway!!!

  28. Me? Unsure? Surely you jest...

    You were such a big help back then. It was a comfort knowing if I had any serious issues, I could ask you for help!

    Before the first I think I more or less just... rambled. Hey! What do you mean I'm still rambling??


  29. Andiloo,

    Thanks, babe. Right back at ya. :)


    Especially those thrilling book indulgifications, right? :) Thanks!


    I know! I can't believe you've been around 6 years!!! I'll be there. I've got 300 posts to catch up on in my reader -- took the weekend off. :)


    Heh. That was a long time ago in a land far, far away. LOL

    You will not see me complaining about rambling!

  30. Congrats on your blogiversary!

  31. Thank you, Rebecca!

  32. Oh goodness I'm so behind on my blog reading so forgive me for being late to the celebration! Love visiting with you via your blog and wishing you many more bloggiversaries! :)

  33. Iliana,

    S'okay. I fall behind all the time. This weekend, I didn't visit a single blog (or write much, for that matter . . . or read). Thanks for the wishes!!! :)

  34. Yay!!! 3 years of great blogginess! It was fun to look back at your earlier posts. Remember when Andi was A. Estella Sassypants?! I wonder when I first popped in after discovering you?

    Anyhoo, happy blogiversary. Sorry I'm late (again!) to the party. Yours is one of my favorite blogs to visit. Don't go away, ok?! :)

  35. Happy anniversary, Nancy! You have such a great blog, not to mention how wonderful you are. Congratulations on hitting the three year mark.

  36. happy blogiversary!!!

  37. Happy Blog Anniversary!

  38. Les,

    I noticed that -- I'd completely forgotten Andi's former moniker. It was a cute one, for sure! Andi was one of my first visitors because she knew me from a yahoogroups book club. I don't know when you showed up, but it was pretty early on! Thank you! I'm not going anywhere, as far as I know. :)


    Thank you! You say the sweetest things.


    Many thanks!


    Thank you!!

  39. Happy Belated Blogiversary! Mine's coming up this summer. I still equate "Bookfool" with a funky little character that's wearing a thinking cap! :)

  40. Joy,

    Thank you! Yeah, sometimes I miss that little cartoon character with the thinking cap. I just got tired of it, at some point. The reason I chose the cat pic is that she looks like she's laughing, to me. I wondered if you had an anniversary coming up! You started just right after I did, didn't you? I know you've been visiting me practically since the beginning!

  41. I'm a bit late to the party, but I still wanted to pop in and wish you a happy blogiversary!

  42. Happy blogiversary, Bookfool! You're a year "older" than me and one of the first book blogs I discovered. The blogosphere is a happier place with you in it, for sure--can't imagine it without you. :)

  43. Happy (belated) blogiversary! Your posts are so inspiring. :D

  44. Eva,

    Thank you! What a sweet thing to say. :)

  45. Happy (belated) blogiversary!!!!
    Keep up the great posts!
