One Year Old!

It's been one year and two days for Pretty Sinister Books in the blogosphere.  I missed the big one year anniversary.  Life is too busy these days.  So Happy Belated Birthday to the blog!

Just wanted to take the time to thank all those who are now regular readers and specifically the two people who welcomed me so warmly and openly (Bev and Yvette, that's you). Without all the many comments and varied insights I would've thrown in the towel long ago.  That this is such a success is a constant surprise and delight to me.  Thanks for coming back day after day.

  8. Congratulations, John. Carry on! I've learned an enormous amount from your reviews and look forward to each one. However, you're going to have to bear the cost of the house addition, since my TBR pile has increased exponentially since I started reading your blog. Many happy returns of the day.

  12. Thanks, everyone! Hope I can keep up the wild pace as I did last year. I will strive to balance between the ultra obscure and the merely overlooked.

    This year something new: Many books already reviewed and those soon to be reviewed will be put up for sale. Time for many of these books to move on to some other mystery lover's household.
