Here’s a list of what I’m planning on reading.

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

blog news, miscellaneous 0 Comments

Wow, this is a blast from the past. I don’t know if anyone still follows this blog, but hopefully I can change that over the next few months. I can’t believe I started this blog back at the end of 2010. Though it’s been a few years since I did anything regularly with it. I haven’t been reading as much since I stopped, but I have approximately 98 series I’ve started, half of which have all the needed volumes to finish out and published. I think that would be a fun project this year, to try to finish as many… Read more »

Writing Reviews

Thankfully this year I haven’t had any problems with a reading slump, but right now I seem to be at a writing slump. I have read plenty of books lately, but I just can’t seem to write down anything about them. I read purely for enjoyment, so sometimes trying to be analytical is already kind of hard for me. One thing I plan to do is to just keep some post it notes handy and write something down when I come across something that I either really like or don’t like, or something that makes me stop and think.
