I’m Alive! Alive!!

So, I haven’t posted in almost 6 months. I didn’t stop reading, I just was reading things that don’t fit in this blog. I guess after reading all the Hugo nominees and then moving directly to the previously blogged books, I needed a break from thinking critically about what I was reading! 

I’m back now, though I may try alternating my reading so that I read a book for the blog and a book for me in an attempt to avoid burnout again. I hope to blog the first “Empire” book soon and the Hugo nominations will be announced this weekend, so there may be a lot of posts this week, but that will slow down quickly.

Hope my readers are well!


Interim Post – Making Lame Excuses

It’s been a long time since I posted, so this is that inevitable post about why I’m not posting. My reasons are twofold:

1. The next book in Asimov’s series, Robots and Empire is NOT available as an ebook. This means that I had to either order it or hunt it down somewhere. I did manage to find it in my library system, and I’m about halfway through now. I also have a harder time reading regular books now. I suppose because it’s not just sitting there on my computer/tablet/smartphone for me to pick up wherever I left off when a have time. Instead, I have to remember to bring the physical book with me to places, which is much harder.

2. I have a job and September is a busy time. By the time I get home from work, I’m not in the mood to do much of anything but veg in front of the television. The thought required to process a book you intend to review is just not there.

So, that’s why there hasn’t been a post in a couple of weeks. I promise I haven’t forgotten you and I am working on it. The book is due back at the library in a week and I’d hate to have to renew it, so a review should be up sometime soon.
