After all, tomorrow is another day

June 5, 2017 Meta 12

Just a quick note to let those of you who are reading the Wheel of Time series or the Wizard of Oz series along with me that — to no one’s surprise — my reviews/discussion posts will be rather delayed for the 5th and 6th books.

Confession: I have hardly been reading at all lately.

I know! Shock, despair, confusion, disbelief, etc. I don’t think I’ve actually think I’ve read a book THIS slow since I was first learning how to string letters together to make words.

And I owe a great many comments on other blogs as well. My RSS feed has well over 1,000 posts waiting patiently for attention — and let’s not mention my avalanche of browser bookmarks to sort through.

No apologies, just stating the facts. I hope you can forgive me, and possibly indulge a few non-bookish posts here in the near future. Life is a smörgåsbord for me right now, and I’m trying to embrace that rather than worrying about what all I’m not doing.

Thanks to you all for your patience, and I hope that you, Dear Reader, are enjoying good times or successfully fighting your way through the bad times right now.

    Sometimes reading just can’t be/isn’t our priority, and that’s not always a bad thing! I will still be around to read your blog whenever you are up to posting again 😛

    Good luck! Reading was my priority this month, but I only read one book. Gone With the Wind which was a doozy. Think this next month I’m going to stick to light reads now!

    I’m impressed by your choice to just accept that this is how things are right now without apologizing for it. I’ve been in a bit of a slump myself lately and for the most part, I manage to remember that blogging and reading are things I do for fun, not obligations I need to feel guilty for not doing. I have a harder time with events I’m hosting though. They do feel more like an obligation to other people. Since I never judge other bloggers when life gets in the way though, I think I should probably just relax about it 🙂

    May was also a low -read month for me too – an unexpected addiction to Netflix and starting a second job kind of distracted me. Just about to start the May reads for our read-a-longs today so it will be another week or so before they are done, and maybe June’s reads by the end of the month. Don’t hurry on my account. 🙂

      Haha, oh that Netflix, always sneaking up on people. But I imagine that a second job is definitely taking up more time and energy for you!

        Just a cheery wave and thinking of you. My family and I will be in the States in November – Anaheim and San Antonio – as a high school graduation present for my daughter. My reading has picked up again but since I work at least part of nearly every day (sometimes starting at 9am and finishing at midnight with a two hour break for dinner) it is very piecemeal 🙂

          Hey, that’s fantastic — congratulations to your daughter and I hope y’all have a safe + fun trip. San Antonio is lovely (esp. the Riverwalk of course) and has some of the best Tex-Mex food in the state.
