Gearing up to pick up this project properly for the first time in a while! I've set up a little writing space in my home so I can be more focused on reviewing. I've got a stack of books ready to be R&R-ed, as you can see.

For a while I've been too distracted (I kept forgetting about R&R, honestly, because I've been too focused on other things) and uninspired, ideas haven't been coming to me quite as easily as they used to. I also haven't been quite as much of a reader the past year, although right now I'm plowing through a Salman Rushdie and enjoying it: all hope is not yet lost.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I miss this project. I just miss it. I need to do it.

Apart from new reviews, I'm also considering redoing the layout for this whole website. More clean, less clutter. It might take me a while to get around to that part though 😛 but I'm feeling optimistic and glad that I'm at least thinking about this place and this project again.

Meanwhile I have been trying to blog at (about photography, plants, Rome, daily life). I think blogging there, and loving that, has helped me to begin fresh here.

As soon as I have a review ready, I'll post it. I've got my heart set on taking a photo tomorrow, so it shouldn't take me too long (this time).

Thank you, thank you, thank you, everyone who's begun following this blog. Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over for those of you who are still reading this despite my continued absence and broken promises (to myself mostly).

  • Nice to read that you are returning to this blog. Personally, I think it is a well designed, uncluttered looking blog. But, maybe redesigning the blog will give you further impetus to continue updating the blog. What Salman Rushdie book are you reading? My favourite of his books is Midnight's Children. I was very fortunate to attend a talk by Rushdie here in Scotland at the Edinburgh Book Festival last month. Look forward to further reviews in the future.

  • Hi Karin,

    I thought you might find the following link interesting. As I mentioned above I attended a talk by Salman Rushdie at the Edinburgh Book Festival. As luck would have it they were recording said talk and have now put it up on their website. Here is the link,

    This is so great to know. Despite the blog being on hold, From time to time I find myself revisiting it and re-reading your reviews – like today because I just finished a Kathy Reichs novel that i remembered that you reviewed and sae this awesome news. I trust and enjoy your point of view as a book reviewer and admire your photographs that come along. Wish you luck on your future endeavours & glad to know about this new found excitement on this project. 🙂
