Making Connections A-Z Anniversary Celebration!


It all started with an idea.  Why not make a place where we can bring authors, bloggers, publishers, and reviewers together all in one place?

December 2012 marked the one-year anniversary of the Making Connections group.  Since then, we have grown beyond our imagination.  Not only have we listed almost 850 books in the original Making Connections group for review, we have also branched off and made a Young Adult group with 200 books listed for review.

Thank you for being part of this group and for helping us celebrate our one-year anniversary!  We look forward to see where 2013 will take us.

I requested "Q" for the A~Z Blog Hop!

"Q" is for Quirky Characters, Quoteworthy Conversation and Books, all come together to form the Quiddity of Making Connections!  I know... y'all probably feel like you just got whacked over the head by the 'SAT Word' Fairy... but seriously - when I first found Making Connections, I was like a kid in a candy store. 

"You mean, I can just sign up to get all these books... for free?" 
Why YES, yes you sure can as long as you are willing to fulfill the review request end of it.  Some of the books I've read, I don't think would have crossed my radar at all without Making Connections.  

I wouldn't be half the book pimp I am today without Making Connections there to enable me.  I'm proud to be a Mod there, although my petty contributions pale in comparison to how much time and Qi (energy... sort of) Tana, Sheri, and Midu put into the group.  I bow down to their superior talents and try to watch, learn, and emulate.  Y'all rock, ladies, and your Quips are first-rate!
