I'm 3 Years Old!

That's right, friends, The Well-Read Redhead is turning 3 today!

I have no fancy giveaways or whatnot to commemorate this day, but I do want to say THANK YOU for hanging with me these last three years!  There have been lots of changes in my life since then, and my post frequency has waxed and waned, but I love being a part of the book blogging community (both the blogger-readers and the just plain readers!).

I also want to give a shout out to the recently-found running blog community, as I found many kindred spirits there this year when I went on my half marathon journey.  Even a few runner-readers, which is pretty awesome (looking at you, Tara and Wendy!).  And thank you to all of my running-averse reader friends, who have continued to be patient with me despite the incessant photos of my Garmin after long runs.  :)

Also, for funsies and a little #ThrowbackMonday, feel free to check out my first ever book review (of Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman), or my first bookish confessions post (I still have that Borders tag on my keys, hell yes! Although I've paid a LOT more library late fees since then).
Never gonna give you up, Borders.
Here's to many more wonderful reads (and runs), my friends!

My 2nd Blogoversary! Giveaway! WHOOP WHOOP

Good day to you, reader friends!  Yes, it has been two whole years since I started this bookish adventure at The Well-Read Redhead.  CELEBRATION TIME, YO!

In the last year, I've posted 53 book reviews ...not as good as the 98 of my first year, but I'll still pat myself on the back, considering that I've moved (twice), left my job, and had baby #2 within the last 365 days.  Thanks for tagging along for one of the craziest years of my life!

I know things slowed a lot around here lately, but I SO appreciate all of my readers, and I hope you have as much fun in my literary corner of the internet as I do.  I'm looking forward to more good times in year 3...who's with me??

In honor of all my wonderful followers, I am offering a giveaway.  And it's INTERNATIONAL!  Just fill out the Rafflecopter below, and you'll be entered to win $10 from Amazon to use towards the book of your choosing.  I know, controversy with authors etc etc etc, but whatever.  Don't look a gift horse in the mouth, peeps!

If the winner is from the US, I will also throw in 2-3 books off my shelves that I'm looking to give away.  Except I haven't decided which ones are going yet, so it will be a glorious surprise for the winner!
Your face if you win the surprise box of books.  YUP.
Thanks again all...and keep on reading with me!

IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY! I come bearing gifts!

One year!  ONE YEAR, PEEPS!  You've been reading my crazy banter for a whole 365 days.

Today is my first blogoversary, and I shall begin the celebration with some Tony Toni Tone:
(My husband serenades that amazingness to me every year on our wedding anniversary (mainly just the chorus, in a beautifully off-key rendition, but still, IT'S THE THOUGHT), and I feel it's only fair that you be given the same appreciation.)

Well, what a year it has been.  I won't do a long post going over all my stats, but in that time I've managed to review 98 books .  DANG!  If I knew I was that close, I would have let the lead out the last week or two and gotten it up to 100.  Ah, well, maybe next year.  (Maybe not, with two kids.  Okay, whatever.)

I've had lots of highlights, namely connecting with several authors ( Honest Toddler being a potential fave) and of course, with fellow bloggers and readers.  I know my life is going to be busy in the upcoming 12 months, but I can't wait to keep growing the blog and getting to know more of you!

So what is an anniversary celebration without GIFTS??

As a token of appreciation for all of you, my loyal and probably a little off-kilter followers, I am offering up an INTERNATIONAL GIVEAWAY!  Up to $20 for you to spend on Amazon.  Boo-yah.  I wish it could be more, but you know, moving expenses and BLAH BLAH BLAH.  Anyway, if you're anything like me, you already know how to maximize a dollar on book spending at Amazon.

Since this is in celebration of my followers...obviously, you have to follow me.  (New followers welcome!)  But there are other optional entries as well.  Just use the Rafflecopter below (giveaway ends 8/31).
