900 REVIEW- THANK YOU

Advertisements
My goodness, Review Tales has reached the milestone of 900 reviews! Thank you to all authors, contributors, and especially all my site followers for making that possible.
I can truly say that all 900 reviews have been my way of bragging to the world about the immense work and talent submitted by all you writers.  Then too, I can’t tell everyone how much I appreciated writers contributing essays and stories to Review Tales, as occasional spice between book reviews. It all has been more than a pleasure to me, and the time has flown almost too quickly.
So it’s HOORAY for 900! Tomorrow morning it’s scheduling and reviewing Numbers 901 through 1,000. One thousand sounds like a good number to think about. I thank you all again gratefully.
