April is coming to a close already! It’s time for a round up of this month’s happenings on The Oaken Bookcase.
Back at the start of April, I had just done some major blogscaping while taking part in the Bloggiesta event. That has continued during April with a new theme, new Reviews page and some general cleaning up around the place. I hope the Bookcase is now nice-looking while being easy to navigate – please send me feedback if you have any to share!
This month I took part in a blog tour, a cover reveal and hosted an interview with an author, all for the first time. I hope there will be more of those types of things to come!
