Rather incredibly, today marks 10 years of Kaggsy’s Bookish Ramblings!! On 6th June 2012, I took my first tentative steps into the world of book blogging, not really having any idea of what I was doing but just wanting to connect with other book bloggers and give back some of the joy of reading and sharing thoughts about books. The years seem to have flown by in many ways…

During the lifetime of this blog, I do feel I’ve learned to engage with books more deeply; certainly having to write about them has made me concentrate more on what I’m reading rather than just gulping books down. I’ve read and written about some marvellous books, some beloved authors and fortunately not had too many bookish disappointments!I

I’ve also, most importantly I think, had wonderful interactions with other readers and with authors and translators; sharing thoughts on books, having those discussions and sometimes differences of opinion (but always good natured!), has been a real joy. I don’t meet many bookish types in real life, so to be able to have these exchanges has been a real boon! Thanks to all of you who’ve visited, engaged and commented over the years – I always love to interact with other readers!!

A little message Mr. K sent me – he knows my taste in classic detection!! 🤣❤😊

There are often reports of the death of the book blog; I’ve no idea if that’s true or not, but whatever the case I shall continue to Ramble away here about the books and authors I love as long as I get pleasure from it. Here’s to the next ten years!! (if I make it that far….🤣)
