Summertime Intermission

July 17, 2016 Meta 4

I have a confession to make:

I haven’t been reading.

Shocking, I know. Please, take a moment to breathe deeply and calm yourself. Smelling salts are available for a small fee at the concessions stand.

Truth be told, I’ve been dealing with some personal issues lately. Nothing life-threatening; no need to reach for those smelling salts again. But various factors have combined to make me uninterested in books… well, not just books, but almost everything I’m usually interested in pursuing during my leisure time.

Just about the only thing I’ve been consistently interested in has been perfume, of all things. So don’t be surprised if you see a post or two about perfume here on my lil’ ol’ blog. Hey, I only ever said this is a mostly-bookish blog, not an ALL-bookish blog, right?

I’ll probably be reading plenty when we head to Chicago in the near future, but thinking about which books to pack is already stressing me out a little bit. Anyway, I also have a handful of half-done bookish posts to finish up and publish eventually.

I suppose that if one must go on hiatus, the summer is a pretty good time to do it. Summertime is basically made for intermissions, isn’t it?

    I’m sorry you’re dealing with some stuff right now. I’m glad it’s not life-threatening, though. I understand what you mean, though. I really have no desire to read right now either and it’s bugging me. Have fun in Chicago. And, yes, I think summer is a great time for a hiatus if you have to take one. 🙂 I’ll still be here when you get back.

      Thanks, and I know they say “misery loves company” but it really does make me feel better that someone else out there is taking a little break from reading.

    Summertime is definitely for intermissions. I’m so sorry you’ve been dealing with so much personally. I hope things resolve for you soon. I completely understand and have been that way myself and have taken a hiatus or two. Enjoy Chicago. 🙂
