Kimbooktu has turned one today. On December 21. 2006 I posted the first entry. It has been quite a year. I never thought that making a website about bookish gadgets would be so popular. I only created this blog, because I always wanted to read one. I hoped there would be some other book lovers around who had the same wish. And so there were!
Thank you all so much for your tips, your comments, your wise words and your overall enthusiasm. I cannot tell you how much it means to me. I was overwhelmed when you nominated me for me for the 2006 Best of Blogs award. And that your votes made me win. This is only one of the highlights in the short existence of Kimbooktu.
