Annabel's House of Books

Noli domo egredi, nisi librum habes – Never leave home without a book.

My Blog is 1 today!

Dear everyone,

It is a year ago today that I dipped my toes into the blogosphere with a very tentative post titled Is there anybody out there?, (the Pink Floyd inspired title was in deference to Rick Wright who had died earlier that day).

I’ll be getting back to bookish stuff in a day or two, but I would like to thank everyone who has ever visited ‘Gaskella’ – especially my followers and regular visitors. Comments are the lifeblood of the blog world, and I’d like to thank all those who comment in particular. It’s been lovely getting to know you, and I’ve met many kindred spirits, found many reading recommendations and just enjoyed myself thoroughly.

I raise my glass of virtual vino to all of you.


  1. Congratulations! It's been lovely getting to know you, too.

  2. Congratulations!
