As I sit reflecting about what to write the first thing to come to mind is the fact I have not blogged a single word in almost 10 months. While 10 months may sound like a long time, it has gone by in the blink of an eye; to me it seems as only yesterday I suspended my blog for medical reasons. Many things have happened over these past months, but one thing has remained constant, my passion for books. Admittedly I have not missed the stress of trying to get reviews posted by a deadline; this forced break has shown me just how much I missed reading for the sake of reading.
I have kept a running list of everything I have read over these past 10 months and the books I read have been quite diverse and may be found under the “books read” tabs. Some of the books I did choose to review, albeit briefly, on LibraryThing and Goodreads, but mostly I have read for the pure enjoyment of reading. As I type this I have not formed a plan in my mind as to what exactly my next steps may be for this blog or myself. Most likely I shall begin to sporadically post reviews, however, I do not envision posting near the volume I have in the past, especially not at first, after all I am rather rusty at blogging.
These past few months have taught me that time away from the computer is a very good thing. This year my babies are graduating and I honestly do not plan to miss a moment I have with my guys. All too soon my house will be empty and quite possibly this blog will help fill some void I will have when the time comes. In the meantime if I am not posting reviews, know I am around and when I am not reading, I am enjoying time with my family. After all, life is precious and time goes by far too quickly.
