The First Month

With any debut, be it book, blog, or album, the creator has butterflies about how widespread their work of art will be accepted. And since I tend to come up with some pretty half-baked creations, I'm very pleased with the reception Library Dad has received over the past month. And while I would love to see more traffic here, I'm very happy with what I have.

So here's a bit of a summary of what Library Dad has seen so far.

  • Visits: 420
  • Top Search Terms: review "island in the sea of time -wikipedia, library dad, and alexander cipher
  • Money Spent: $4.59
  • Top Visiting States/Countries: California, Virginia, New York, United Kingdom, and Canada
Big thanks to my mom, Fantasy Debut, and Words and Stuff for their support.

The poll went better than expected as well with twelve votes. The clear winner was Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb pulling in six votes. Second place went to A Midwife's Tale by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich and third was Allegiance by Timothy Zahn. While The Scourge of God only pulled down one vote, I've already read it so I don't feel too bad.

You should see a new poll up, so take a moment to go vote on it. In the meantime, I've already started reading Royal Assassin and A Midwife's Tale.

No prob! I've been enjoying the posts and seeing what randomness you can find via your library.

It's been fun so far. And I have some interesting ideas for the months to come but it's so hard sometimes to pace myself.
