Literate Housewife Turns 10!

It’s hard to believe, but today my blog turns 10 years old. What began as a way to keep myself honest about reading 52 books in on year became the best habit I’ve ever picked up. It has added friends, great reads, great reads, audiobooks, author and narrator friends, and trips to New York and Asheville. I love my expanded horizons and how they have made me who I am today. My one regret – and just for today only – is that I stopped numbering each review. It would have been nice to say I reviewed X books in 10 years without having to count. Ah well…

Thanks to one and all who have supported me over the years. Some have been better than others and I know that the last few have been spotty. Project Management and book blogging haven’t mixed well together in my life, but I will keep giving this space a good college try. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next 10 years will bring.
