2,000 Mod Podge Books!

This is the 700th MPB post!

Oh, my goodness, you guys.

You rock a little book-nerd's heart. 


I cannot believe I am at two thousand readers here on The Mod Podge Bookshelf!

This is a goal I never thought I could achieve so quickly; it has only been 27 months since I began this little book blog, unaware of how it would change me, not knowing it would save my life. 

And I mean that very literally, might I add. 

MPB was born of some dark days which I was blessed to see turned to light, even if the dawn was a gradual thing, as they usually are. 


Now, looking at my Readership, at the comments and tweets and e-mails you send me, I can honestly say I've moved forward and past the wreckage on the side of the road. 

I'm on to bigger and better things than those, though I cannot believe they could get bigger or better than this day. 

Not only do over 2,000 of you now read MPB daily, but this is my 700th post ever written for this blog. 

Obviously both landmarks call for a giveaway, and so I am proud to present:

2,000 Mod Podge Books!




One winner will receive ARCs of three of my favorite 2012 reads, and another winner will receive a 20$ giftcard to Amazon or The Book Depository, as the giftcard giveaway is INTERNATIONAL! 


Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter, and again, thank you ever so for the gift you have all given me. 

Happy two-thousand, you guys, here's to many, many more posts, readers and years of blogging to come!
