I've come upon quite a few posts about what I'm calling the "blogging blues". Seems like a lot of us enjoy blogging, but are missing the enjoyment of being able to pick up what we want when we want. Everytime I come upon one of those posts, I'm like "thats me"!
Lately, I haven't even wanted to read. I almost feel like I've lost my giddiness over reading. I have a book that needs to be read for a swap game on PBS, and today, after not picking up a book in a week, I decided I needed to read it (needs to be mailed by tomorrow). I read one chapter, and then quickly skimmed the rest, and read the last chapter...done! That is so not me. I've been reading Await Your Reply for awhile now, and it also has to be sent out for a swap, luckily my local library has a copy. It's good, but I guess because I have to read it, I don't want to read it.
I really do enjoy blogging, but I need it to be secondary to my love of reading like it was when I first started this blog. To get past the "blogging blues" I've decided no more swaps, and no more signing up for tours for awhile. I do have two books coming from tours soon, but not a problem, because I really, really want to read those..lol!
I have so many great books in my TBR that have been waiting for me read for years. I'm thinking for the rest of the year I'm going to focus on reading. I going to still blog of course, but it will take the backburner. I'll be able to start the new blogging year, nice and refreshed.
