a decade

The eagle-eyed among you will notice that it’s been nearly 10 years since the previous couple posts.  There’s a reason for that, and yet, no reason at all.

Back in 2009, when I started this blog, my aim was to review a book every week and in 2009, I had all the time in the world to read all day.  But then things happened and suddenly I didn’t have any time at all.

And with no job, I also didn’t have any money to fund such a venture.

So, I let it lie for a while.  I would think about it with a tinge of remorse that I wasn’t able to keep it going.  Guilt followed and eventually enough time passed that I stopped thinking about it.

Suddenly, recently, I remembered that it was here.  I had to look it up to see if it still existed it and to my delight; it does.

I’m absolutely delighted to be able to pick this back up again.  Although I’ve never stopped reading avidly, I missed being able to share my thoughts about the books I’ve read here.

Back at its inception, I set myself reading goals and deadlines. For some reason I felt like I needed a deadline in order to keep the reviews coming in on a regular basis.  But now, I feel like I read enough consistently, that I don’t need the added pressure of a hard deadline.

That being said, I’m creating a page on this site about what I’m currently reading and what reviews are coming up next.  I’m not going to review ever single thing I’m reading.  I don’t think that’s necessarily interesting and fresh enough to publish.  I tend to go back in time and read books I’ve always wanted to read.  So, I’ll tend more to publish reviews on newer books.

Am I gonna post reviews on a regular basis? Ehm…well, I won’t be able to do a review every week (gah, how much would that feel like doing a book report in the 6th grade??).  But regular enough with some general posts in between.  I’m already getting ideas of books lists in my head.

Great.  So, thanks for joining me here.  I’m looking forward to whatever the future holds.

(Maybe even a new title for this site….who knows?)
