Impressions of a Reader is 4 years-old!

It has been a good four years! I'm still here!

In reflecting back and looking at changes that have taken place, I realize that Impressions of a Reader is first and foremost a romance blog, but today it is more eclectic than four years ago. As you may already know, I'm a fluid reader and different reading interests have taken me in many different directions. That fluidity serves to keep my enjoyment of different genres fresh and the reading excitement going. So in future, Impressions will continue to reflect my reading preferences. As my fifth year as a blogger begins, I invite you to come by, look around, read about, or find, the books that most interest or excite you!

Thank you readers and friends for your support throughout the past four years! And, a special thanks to my husband for being so understanding, supportive, and encouraging, even when I spend a fortune in books! Cheers!

  1. Congrats, Hils, on the milestone. I admire the diversity of your reading, although I fully admit that I like the narrow little world of my own, lol! Here's to many more years.

    1. Thank you, Phyl! You know? I went through a stage in my life (it lasted a few years) when I only read romances -- category romances to be exact. I loved and enjoyed them thoroughly!

      Cheers!

  3. Congrats on four years Hils! This is one of my favorite reader blogs and I'm so glad you've continued to be an active part of the TBR Challenge (I always like to see what you dug out of your pile!).

    Diverse reading makes for diverse blogging - and, I think - makes it easier for the blogger to not suffer through burnout as much :)

    Always a pleasure to read your reviews and to trade recs. Diversity in reading is what it's all about for me as well.
