Happy Birthday, Ex Libris Fides!


I knew the date was coming up, but just had not really focused on it yet. Then this morning J. at A Church for Starving Artists made reference to her third "blogoversary," which prompted me to go back and see when the first posting of Ex Libris Fides was. Turns out it was one year ago today. Wahoo!

I'm still having fun writing it, hope you all out there are still enjoying reading it. Sorry there has been a lapse this week - I have been reading a really good novel (The Book Thief by Markus Zusak), that would be easy to just blow through because the story is so good. However, the writing is so subtle and compelling that I have forced myself to go slowly so as not to miss as much. Just finished it a couple of days ago - more posting about it over the weekend sometime.

Anyway, Happy Birthday to my blog! Have a piece of cake to celebrate (or take a book to your favorite kid and read it to him/her).

P. S. Also want to wish my brother-in-law and fellow book lover D. and Happy Birthday today!

J - I am surprised I did not realize it last year, when I started the blog. Oh well, it's fun to realize it now! Have a fun blogoversary! Maybe next year we can plan a party.

Congrats . . .that's awesome. My blog is almost one too! I think I'll run a bit that day to commemorate.

In any case, I've got a new book for you . . . Sarah Vowell's newest. It's called "The Wordy Shipmates" and it's all about Puritans . . . but it's got lots of interesting stuff about religion and US history and how they all related to today's politics. Check it out.

Hey TET - I've seen Sarah Vowell's new book and was already planning to put it on my Christmas list. It was just about a year ago that you and your S. introduced her to me. We can't wait to see you marathon weekend.
