Book Binge Turns 10

Posted April 25, 2017 by Rowena in Giveaways, Miscellaneous | 3 Comments

Ten years ago, Irreplaceable by Beyonce was the #1 song on the charts and the iPhone was the gadget of the year. As great as those things were, the very best thing to happen that year was the birth of Book Binge. 🙂

Holly and I were part of another group blog, but wanted to branch out and start fresh. We wanted our own place in the romance book community where we could talk about the books we were loving, the books we were hating and pretty much wanted to do whatever we felt like doing. So we started Book Binge. Not too long after that, Casee joined our team and we’ve been handling business ever since.

When we first started the blog, I had no idea that it would grow into what it is today. I’m proud of the hard work that we’ve put in because I think we’ve cemented our place in the romance community and we love being a part of one of the most welcoming and just all around awesome communities on the internet.

Book Binge started on April 25, 2007 and so far, we’ve racked up the following stats:

We’ve met some amazing people on this blog journey. Some bloggers that are long gone, but quite a few that are still around.
