Hi! Yes, still here!
So I started this reading blog last November...I was thinking about keeping
my book log, and how I get behind because I write down stuff I think about
what I read and not just title and author. I thought it might be nice,
overall, to force myself to do more writing, and that a blog might be more
effective than a private journal.
Then on the day winter vacation started, my computer died. Hard. I ended
up with no computer, forced to borrow Jacob's, for three weeks. And even
though I had access to email and everything, it felt uncomfortable working
at his computer. So I didn't actually do the end-of-year list until
January. And instead of posting it here, I put it on the blog because,
well, it gets longer every year, and I always feel guilty about how long it
is. So I posted it in three installments.
The whole time, I was thinking "I need to mention this to the DWJ list so
anyone who's interested will know where to look." And then I just never
did. I think the act of posting made it feel as though I was done with it,
you know? Or I'm just being my usual flaky self.
Anyway, the list starts at
know some of you don't have easy web access, so if anyone really wants, I
can post the text version here (but then I will not feel guilty about the
length, ooh that sounds good). The most recent stuff I've posted is the
Harry Potter reviews I did in 2007, because we are in the middle of buying a
house and I don't have much mental energy for writing. Though I desperately
want to write about _The Monstrumologist_, which I finished reading the
night before I found out about the Printz Awards and which was very good.
(not getting _Enchanted Glass_ until April 8; being poor sucks)
