Time to Celebrate!!!! Happy 5 Year Blogiversary!!!!

Five years ago today, I made my very first post on Book Reviews & More by Kathy!! Since then, I have published an amazing 3954 posts, written 1291 book reviews and purchased over 1000 eBooks for various giveaways.

To say the site has succeeded beyond my wildest dreams is a huge understatement. I owe an ENORMOUS debt of gratitude to all of you who stop by and read the posts, the authors who ask me to review their books or post information for their releases, the blog tour companies who asked me to join their teams and the publishers who requested reviews and added me to their publicity groups. I LOVE what I do and I am incredibly thankful to everyone who took a chance on a start-up review site.


To celebrate this amazing milestone and to thank you for all of your help in making this venture such a resounding success, I am giving away ONE Kindle Fire HD 6″ Display with Wi-Fi & 8 GB of storage (Includes Special Offers)-US Addresses ONLY, ONE $25 Amazon Gift Certificate & ONE $15 Amazon Gift Certificate (international entries welcome)!

    Typical clumsiness, me. x)
    Thank you for the chance to win a giftcard (book money) – I entered those correctly. Lol ;D

    Congratulations on 5 years! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading your reviews and you’ve steered me to numerous authors which I’d not heard of before but now love. I always enjoy spotlights and guestposts too. Great fun and very interesting to read! Cheers for another 5 years! 😀

    Congratulations on 5 years! Unfortunately, I only found you in the last year. You are a daily stop for me; I can always count on a great review that is then taken into consideration when purchasing my next book. And thank you for including the M/M genre. Here’s to another 5 years and more. Happy blogging!

    • Book Reviews & More by Kathy

      Thank you so much! I’m honored that I am one of your daily stops. I appreciate your support 🙂

    Happy Blogiversary! And Thank you for all the time you put in!
    You are so smart to separate the entries – I have both a Kindle Paperwhite & a Fire so hesitate to enter contests that include those as one of the options – this way is perfect – Amazon GC’s are always appreciated.

    • Book Reviews & More by Kathy

      Thank you, Diane! You’ve been with me for a good part of the 5 years!

      I know it’s a little extra work to fill out separate entry forms, but it’s definitely easier for me to keep track of. I appreciate the positive feedback 🙂
