Here's to a new year and to a birthday (Cornflower Books is four years old today), and I'd like to mark these two milestones with my thanks to all who visit here, the loyal readers, the assiduous commenters, the generous contributors. It goes without saying that we would have little to talk about without the work of the writers - the results of the enormous investment of expertise, energy and time made in order to entertain or enlighten us - and to the publishing teams who bring that work into the world (and who keep the likes of me informed about it all). Thankyou, everyone.
I couldn't let a new year dawn and a birthday pass without giving someone a wee present, so let's have a draw to win a book. To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling us what you're reading, or are about to read, as the year begins, and in a few days' time I'll pull a name from the hat and send that person something good. This is open to everybody, no matter where in the world you live, and regardless of whether you're a casual visitor here or an old stager - please do have a go.
Happy new year!
