The Book Trout is One Year Old

Lo and behold, the Book Trout is one year old. It's been an interesting year of blogging about things literary and beyond and I think there are certainly enough bookish bits to write about for years to come.

In the last year the Trout has been visited by 7,754 folks and that's pretty mind blowing. Interestingly, the most popular post is our paean to our bookseller colleagues at Lyrical Ballad Bookstore in Saratoga Springs. Since John and Jan DeMarco don't have a store website, I guess most people find us when they want to google "funky Saratoga bookstore". The other most popular posts have been our gift ideas for book lovers, the surprise visit by children's author Ruth Stiles Gannett, a look at home libraries around the world, and book hunting in our neck of the woods.

Thanks to all the good folks who comment on my postings and add to the fun. Off to bake a Trout Cake to celebrate our one year anniversary.

I love the name 'Book Trout'! Actually, I have a request on baking the trout cake! I'm looking to make one, and would love to know how you did it! Would you mind sharing this information? Thanks so much,
