Happy 4th Blogoversary to Stiletto Storytime
Can it really be four years since I began Stiletto Storytime? In the beginning I was a young children’s librarian just out of graduate school…there I was sitting at the reference desk late nights, mildly bored at times and looking for a way to track my insane reading habits in a somewhat new and unique manner. I love to read and I found a fantastic outlet for my passion in my profession. It has been the perfect career for a book addict such as myself. Stiletto Storytime came about as an avenue to explore, learn and share my loves: libraries, storytime ideas and books most of all! Over the years I have left the library setting and even added my own little future reader to the storytime mix with the birth of my son but my love of the written word has endured. Stiletto Storytime is a testament to that. Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this splendid journey so far. Authors, publishers, fellow book blogging friends and my dear dear readers….I thank you for following me along in my literary travels! May the trip continue as every new book offers the possibility of being “the very best” for each of us. What more could you ask for?
To celebrate my 4th Blogoversary I am looking forward to sharing a few of my favorite things these next few weeks. We will touch on my favorite author Jane Austen with a fabulous guest post from another favorite author of mine: fellow Janeite Heather Vogel Frederick. Heather will share her own love of dear Jane and details of her Austen related travels along with an inside look at her own Pies & Prejudice and her latest children’s picture book Babyberry Pie. Did I mention the giveaways as well? Look out for a special Austen themed prize package, goodies from the always generous Heather Vogel Frederick and last but not least….I will be giving away a box of books! That’s right a whole box of books straight from my shelves for one lucky reader. It’s my Blogoversary….and you’re invited! So make sure to follow along the rest of the month for lots of fun and chances to win some amazing books for your own library!
