It's not that I haven't been reading, but it's just that I haven't been reading as much as normal. There are book reviews coming eventually, but it requires me actually finishing a book or two.
It also has to do with the fact that I'm participating in a readalong of Lonesome Dove. Because of that, part of my normal reading routine is devoted to a book that I won't finish for several more weeks. I am absolutely loving Lonesome Dove, though. I've wanted to read this for years and I'm so glad the readalong has convinced me to actually start.
So, I'm still here, I'm busy, I'm reading and I'm still blogging, but just at a bit of a slower pace for a few weeks.
This is the time of year I relish the days that don't involve long To Do lists and allow me to just spend a few hours curled up with a book. I'm hoping today turns out to be one of those days. If all goes according to plan, I've got a couple of them on the way next weekend too.
11/8/10 Editing this post to add more - based on the initial comments people seem to be under the impression that I'm not finishing books and posting reviews because I'm reading books I don't want to read or books I feel like I have to read. Trust me, nothing could be further from the truth. I love all the books I'm currently reading. None of them feel like a chore or homework. The reason I'm not posting more than one review a week these days is simply lack of reading TIME. Those pesky annoyances of work and sleeping and life in general are eating up my reading time.
