    PS: I think I mixed up the blog review entries with the goodreads review entries and can't edit them in the rafflecopter! Done both though.

  5. Congratulations Debdatta! Keep up the awesome work!

  6. Oh my God, DDS! Wow. It's been three years! That's excellent. Many, many congratulations to you! I couldn't agree more with Ritesh- you truly are an inspiration to all us amateur book bloggers, so thank you for that.

    I sitll remember the day we tweeted back and forth like mad about our common love for Harry Potter, and how, no book will ever match up to it. And then the whole Fifty Shades conversation! Well, those are just simple memories I'll never forget.

    Anyway, I hope you continue to blog for as long as you possibly can, as I look forward to your posts all the time. You are great and what you do, and you rock!

    Stay bookish, always! Much love, and best wishes. <3

  10. Congrats on the 3 years Debdatta. While I like the look of your blog just the way it is but i would suggest a bit more vibrant hue to the background to bring out the design of your blog.
