2013 Wrap Up!

 
Can you believe 2013 is over?  Wow!
Last year I did my first ever end of the year wrap up post and I thought I would do another one this year. This year was a bit of a challenge trying to keep this blog up and running.  Yes!  Blogging is a learning process and I have to learn how to budget, schedule and manage my time a little bit more.  For one, much more organized and focus about my blog than I was at the beginning of this journey but I still need to work on the time management. 
So here are the stats for my second year with My Little Pocketbooks
Well here is a few of the great highlights from my first year with My Little Pocketbooks.

As you can see this has been a great bookish year.
I am so thankful for all the followers, the authors, the publishing companies and of course the other book bloggers for welcoming me into their community.  Still so thrilled and loving it all!
As this year closes, it is time to get ready to celebrate my blogs 2nd B-day!
