Clearly this blog has been somewhat neglected for awhile now, but it’s time to see about getting it going again! I graduated from university at the end of 2010, and ended up accidentally taking a break from reading books – that lasted a year. Actually, to be more accurate, I took a break from FINISHING books. I kept trying, but to no avail. Looking back, I think there were two contributing factors. First, I was just so burned out from 7 years of school and reviewing for an online magazine, that I just needed to recharge my batteries. Second, I had back surgery in 2009, and when I got a job that requires an hour in public transit each way – usually standing – I stopped carrying a book with me because I just couldn’t take the extra weight.
However, I’m trying to get back in the groove again. I got an ereader for Christmas, which has helped me feel more motivated to read – and allows me to bring an entire library with me wherever I go without weighing my bag down as much. It’s taking a bit of time to get back into the groove, so I won’t promise that this blog will be hopping, but I’m going to try to keep semi-regular posts coming!
