Happy Birthday to The Book Barn!

A year ago today I started this blog because book reviews were taking over my personal blog. I began posting two book reviews each week, but narrowed it down to one because I wanted to commit myself to reviewing every single week and one review a week was a fair goal. I am so pleased to say that I succeeded in blogging at least once a week for an entire year! That's 71 book reviews posted to date! I don't think I've ever stuck with such a commitment where I was the only one to hold myself accountable.

Of course with birthdays comes presents, and I'm happy to give one away to you wonderful readers! I'm raffling off a book bag filled with some of my favorite books, old classics and one book I haven't yet read, plus a bunch of other book-related goodies (including my absolute favorite Last Line bookmarks!)! I might even add some other stuff! There are lots of ways to win, so I hope you'll enter and spread the word!! Here's all the swag one lucky reader will win:
