The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme with a prompt featuring a book related question. The hop begins on a Friday and ends on a Thursday and should hopefully give people the opportunity to learn something new about the blogger.
The Book Blogger Hop can be found on Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and obviously my answers can be found here!
But that’s only because I haven’t had an anniversary yet. The BookNook UK will turn a grand total of 1 year old on the 25th March. That’s only 6 days after my own birthday where I turn *mumbles* 3jhjfhfjghfgkjhjh4hjkxhjfhjkhf.
I have considered what I’ll be doing for the blog’s anniversary in terms of a blog post. Something un-originally entitled ‘Blogversary’ no doubt with some reflection on the year gone past but as always, content is subject to change as life is subject to change.
As for a giveaway? I have an idea yes.
For my *actual* birthday in March my husband is gifting me the MasterClass run by Neil Gaiman. Because my husband knows how much I love Neil Gaiman. (I also love my husband).
Because we are fortunate that we are in a position where we can afford this kind of thing and because I know not everyone is – I want to pay it forward. My giveaway will be gifting a MasterClass to someone. It doesn’t have to be run by Neil Gaiman but because this is a book blog, I want it to be one of the writing classes.
Considering as there are classes with James Patterson, Judy Blume, R.L. Stone, Dan Brown and Margaret Atwood, I think there’s plenty of awesome choices in which to make a selection.
I’ve not done a giveaway before and so need to look into it and also how people go about organising it, choosing someone etc.
If anyone at all can help me out with some pointers it would be greatly appreciated!

Have you guys ever hosted (or plan to host) a giveaway for a blog anniversary? Do you even celebrate your blog anniversary? Do you do something other than a giveaway?
