I’ve mostly loved my 2012 reading year. Have there been some not-my-favorite books? Well yes, but that’s not what I’m talking about.
Only two books I’ve read so far were sent by the publisher. (Well, I actually just finished another that arrived unsolicited, but still. Very small number.) And since I was oh-so very choosy, those books weren’t a burden to read or to review.
Of course, I haven’t read all that many books, either. (Current tally: 36. Well shy of the 70s to 90s I’ve averaged the past five years.)
I have read several titles for my personal challenge with Amy — I’m nearly done with that list! — but otherwise I’ve just been reading books from my own shelves, as and when I want to.
And it’s been bliss, I’m here to say. It was actually kind of like my reading was before I started a blog, except that before I started a blog I didn’t have a bookcase full of unread books …
I’ve reviewed very few books, and while I’m OK with that for this past year, overall, as I’ve already said, I miss blogging and hope to get back to talking about the books I read, as I read them.
Have you tried to recapture the way you used to read? Were you successful?
