Three weeks?

Has it really been three weeks since I’ve written a book review? There was one non-review blog entry on January 3, but prior to that it was 12/28 and today is 1/17!

I really didn’t want to stop blogging – I was moving my mom into a lovely senior home and getting her settled plus having her birthday party. That took both time and energy as she’s 95 years old now! It will still take a bunch more time and energy to empty her old house and get it sold. But not today. I need at least a couple days free a week. Today I finished another book. (YAY) and that’s four for January so far.

I do have to admit that I wasn’t focused on two of the books I read this month at all. Both To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf and The Bookstore by Penelope Fitzgerald seemed too slow for me or something. I’ve read them before and I know there is meat in those books – delicious meat. At least they were short. And I didn’t bother with reviews.

Happy The books which did hook me this month were The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life by David Quammen and Milkman by Anna Banks.  (links to my reviews on this site)

Also today I started cleaning out my folders of really old posts with double and triple copies which were messing up my filing system. And I started listening to James Lee Burke’s new Dave Robicheaux novel, New Iberia Blues (number 22 in the series) and writing a couple reviews.

I might slow down a tad, but I’m not leaving. :-).

Happy Reading!
