My Six Year Blogiversary! ~ #Giveaway!


Hello, friends! It's my Blogiversary! Woohoo! {{throws confetti}}

Six years ago today I started this blog. I had no idea what I was doing. I was just playing around on Blogger to see what it was all about, and to see if I could make a blog page that looked like some of my favorite bloggers. I gave no thought to my blog name. I remember laughing at myself as I was setting it up, thinking I have no time for this, so I wrote "So little time..." for the title. And here I am six years later still plugging away! 

I found a direction and started posting reviews quite regularly. Sadly, that has fallen by the wayside. Posting one review a week burned me out. Plus, life, in general, got busier. I still have hopes of starting that up again. This should be my last year homeschooling, and, fingers crossed, I will have more time next year! 

This is the first year I have celebrated my blogiversary! Usually, I'm too busy with the start of school to even think about it! Lol! This year I have some books I need to give away and thought, this would be a good time to celebrate! 

So, let's get the party started! My shelves are overflowing with books, and I sadly need to thin them out. There are few I had doubles of! Plus, a dear friend gave me the set of Pamela Aidan books that she wanted to find a good home for. Lucky you!!

 * * * GIVEAWAY * * * 

I have 6 books and 1 set of books (counted as one book) - totaling 7 gently used books to give away. 



The set: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman (Bk. 1, Bk. 2, & Bk 3) by Pamela Aidan. 



Haunting Mr. Darcy by KaraLynne Mackrory ~ My Review
Pemberley Ranch by Jack Caldwell
Prom & Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
Jane Austen in Scarsdale by Paula Marantz Cohen

A couple of non-Austen: 

Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg ~ My Review
Cinder by Marissa Meyer

  3. Hi Candy, happy blog birthday! Your blog was one of the first ones I found after I discovered JAFF. I hope you manage to get back to reviewing at some point. The problem is that there is just 'so little time' ;)

    1. Hi, Jen! That was nice of you to give away your hard copies, but I know what you mean. I love being able to look at all my books on the shelf. You can't do that with eBooks. Good luck in the giveaway! Thanks!

  9. Yay for you, Candy! Six years is a grand old blog. Wishing you many more to come and the time to read again and put up reviews.

    Neat how you came to blogging. I didn't know your story so glad you shared it.

    Shelf-cleaning... I need to do that, but here I am crossing my fingers for a chance to win either of Elizabeth Euberg's books Prom & Prejudice or Better Off Friends

    1. Thank you, Sophia Rose! I can't believe it's been six years! There were times it was hard to keep up with, especially when I was posting reviews regularly. I think my family got tired of hearing me say, "I can't..., I have a deadline!!" or "I need to work on my blog!" ;)

      Most of the books I'm giving away are doubles. It's hard to give books like these to Goodwill or a used book store. I want to make sure they'll go to a home that will love them! :) Best of luck in the giveaway!
