I'm Back

So I stayed away a bit longer than planned. Last week my youngest was in art camp every day from 10:30 to 1:30. I'm not sure how that managed to eat up my week but it did. I also had various and sundry things going on-- little things that can add up. I'm sure most-- if not all-- of you know of which I speak.

I've started a new blog kind of on a lark. The title came to me and I thought, "Why not?" Hey, I don't have anything else to do, right? This blog is meant to be a place where I can write about what I'm personally reading. While we talk a lot about books on She Reads, it's a collective effort-- and oftentimes there are books I can't talk about because we simply don't have the space. So this is the overflow, I guess. But of a personal nature.

I never fancied myself as a book blogger but I guess that's what I am now. As of now my plan is to post about what I'm reading, review some of my faves, and share upcoming novels I'm excited about. I hope that I can steer some of you towards some novels you might've missed, and inspire others to give novels-- or reading at all-- a try. It always surprises me the number of women who tell me either 1) I don't read novels because I want to use my reading time to read something to improve myself or 2) I don't have time to read. I'd love to change both of those for every woman! Great stories add such a richness to life.

In the meantime, I will still be using this blog to write about what I've been up to, share any thoughts that occur to me, and post the occasional recipe or tip. The same stuff I've been posting in the past. I will most likely move any book-related postings to Novel Wanderings, however. I hope this doesn't get too confusing for you guys-- or me!

I hope to have more to share in the coming week. I was doing so well with my regular posts and then our vacation hit and I haven't really bounced back yet. I'll get there. I usually do.
Pin It!

Your new book blog is already doing some good. I just requested The Sweet By and By from the library. I'm always looking for good book suggestions. Thanks Marybeth!
