This post marks a milestone of sorts for Travel Between The Pages. After eight years or so of fairly regular posting, today we have reached 3000 posts. When TBTP launched in 2010, it was simply a hobby project for an inveterate procrastinator who spent way too much time reading blogs and wandering down internet rabbit holes rather than working. Over the years, I have been gratified to discover that the blog has reached people around the world. In fact, the best part of this little project is contact with so many smart, kind, and creative people who I would have otherwise never “met”. TBTP was meant to be, and continues to be, noncommercial, with the exception that I have been pleased to promote the work of talented artists, designers, writers, performers, and creators.
To mark this milestone, I would like to show my gratitude to each and ever reader, follower, commenter, liker, and even critic of Travel Between The Pages. Along with a hearty thanks, I would like to show my appreciation with a book giveaway. Those of you who are regulars here are aware that in IRL I am a bookseller and collector, with a specialization in antiquarian and collectible travel literature. So I thought that it would be appropriate to offer an old travel book. To that end, I will randomly select one name from the list of people who have followed, subscribed, or left a comment or like on the blog during the last year. I will then contact he giveaway winner and offer the choice of one book from the following titles: The Romance of London, Gordon Home (1911); Paris In A Week, The Blue Guides (1918); Baedeker’s Italy From The Alps to Naples, Karl Baedeker (1909).
