MOTM July 2018: Bianka Walter

Post by bookowlie » 30 Jun 2018, 09:53

Drumroll please! I am pleased to announce the July Member of the Month…Bianka Walter! She has been an active participant on the site since joining in February 2018. Admitting she “just wants to read everything,” Bianka Walter has far surpassed her 2018 reading goal of 40 books…and it’s only July 1. She has written several thorough, interesting reviews. On a personal note, I particularly enjoyed reading two of her reviews as I had also read and reviewed those books. Bianka Walter is a cheerful presence around the forums and routinely supports other reviewers. She is also quick to offer advice to newbies who have questions; her tips about catching errors before submitting a review are very useful. Please join me in congratulating our newest Member of the Month, Bianka Walter!

The animal lover triumphs! I am not surprised at all to see your name here.

Aside from making me nostalgic by reminding me of my Sesame Street friend Mr. Snuffleupagus, you always make my day with your kind comments. Keep fighting for our furry friends!

Congratulations! :tiphat:

Congrats on member of the month!!
It is an impressive goal to want to read everything.
I always find myself steering away from certain genres I should work on that...

Bianka, I have thoroughly enjoyed your input and our occasional exchanges.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.
