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