This is just a brief note to followers of this blog and/or the Deal Me In challenge that I (yet again) have three weeks’ worth of stories to post about, but I won’t be around today to get my write-ups posted. I may have them up by tonight, or possibly tomorrow if things go all sideways, but I will not likely meet the unofficial deadline this afternoon.
Regarding the blog in general: After finishing the two recent read-a-thons in which I participated, I have a whole slew of books finished that I want to talk about. I won’t be posting a full review of each of them, as some just don’t speak to me that way, while others are fading from my mind too quickly, but I intend to do a couple of round-up mini-review posts in the next several days. I will probably have one such post for books that are on my Classics Club list and another for other titles. I also have a couple of in-depth reviews in the works.
I haven’t yet managed to find a good balance between reading and blogging. I seem to go through cycles where I read a ton but don’t write much…then I read very little for a while and really feel the itch to blog but don’t have much to blog about, due to not reading much. I’m still trying to figure out how to achieve a good system for me that fits with the specifics of my non-reading life. Challenges are definitely helping, but read-a-thons – as much as I love them – seem to actually be detrimental in some ways. Ah, well… I’ll just keep working at it until I find what feels most natural to me.
Happy weekend reading!
