  1. Wow! Well done. I’ve only just got over 100 posts so I’m quite a bit behind πŸ˜‚πŸ˜

    I’m off to have a read of some of your highlighted posts.

    Good luck with the next 300!

    1. Thanks so much! πŸ˜€ I’m always full of ideas so I never run out of posts. As long as I’m reading books, there’ll be things to write about πŸ˜‰

  2. Congrats and well done! I’m at 50 posts, so it’ll be ages before I reach 300. Also, interesting to see your Top Ten. I recently looked at my top posts (since my one year anniversary is coming up) and very few of them are actually book reviews. Looking forward to your next 300 posts! πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚ Book reviews, at least of popular books, tend to get a lot of views for me. Interesting to hear that your other posts get more views, it must depend on the topic and who’s looking I suppose.

      1. Perhaps, I don’t read very popular books! That could very well be the case. πŸ˜‰ But it is always difficult to compete with the popular memes such as Top Ten Tuesday and WWW Wednesday – they tend to get a lot of views!

  3. Congratulations on this wonderful achievement. I think it is indeed important to highlight these moments and remind ourselves how much time and effort we put into our blogs! Here’s to achieving 400 now. πŸ˜›
