Apologies all around

Um. Wow. I've been supremely negligent. I've read a few books and then written absolutely nothing about them. In my defense, my life lately has been a comdram (do they make those?) I'd call "Three Weddings and an Ear Infection" so before you say anything snotty just picture me up all night with a shrieking one year old, pacing the dark street outside in my pajamas while stepping on snails in my slippers. Who knew there was a secret population of about 5 bajillion snails on our street and that they ALL come out to chill on the sidewalk at midnight? The sound of me accidentally (and unavoidably - did I mention that there are 5 bajillion of them??) stepping on one of those buggers in the quiet of the late night was a sickening crunch that was loud enough to wake the child I had finally lulled to sleep. Gross.

So anyways, I've pretty much lost my readership with my recent apathy and am starting to wonder if I should even bother keeping up this blog? If any of you care to keep reading my infrequent and whiny reviews, speak now or forever hold your peace. See? Too many weddings this summer. What I'm saying is that if you actually read this site and would like to see me continue to post book reviews here, let me know and I'll take it under advisement. But don't just say you read them to make me feel better! This is unnecessary, I promise.

In case you *do* want to see reviews, I've read Olive Kitteridge, The Coral Thief (for book club), Faithful Place (the new Tana French), and am just about finished with Death at Holy Orders.

I like your reviews, am not just saying that; and have picked up books based on your suggestions. I've also sent the link to your blog around to a couple other readers who were wondering what they should read next.

Hope you keep it up, but understand if you don't.

-raises hand-

I mean, I already know how you feel about The Coral Thief, but I'm still here, reading. (That's the nice thing about an RSS reader).

I really enjoy your reviews and feel like we have lots in common in reading and life. If you stop blogging, add me on Goodreads so I can see what reading you're up to!

I like reading what you have to say. Baby ear infections are the worst! I sympathize with you.

"Do the blog for you and have fun with it" is what I tell myself when I wonder why I do this. and somehow the fun comes back. I hope you continue - you always have a different take and I love that you are brave enough to speak your mind. :)
