Hi Everyone! So, some of you may be wondering, "It's Thursday! Where's the News Roundup?" Here's what's going on: I put a lot of time into the news roundup - reading over headlines, reading the actual articles, looking through every blog I follow, picking out great reviews that I wouldn't want you to miss, formatting them all and linking them up in a post, etc. And really, I am a news junkie, so I enjoy doing this. But seriously, if I were to add the time up, it takes hours and hours every week to compile.
Right now, I don't have that kind of time. I have a big life event coming up quickly. I am walking down the aisle and getting married on January 22. I was hoping/wishing/praying that I could keep up with everything, and driving myself nuts to do so. And truth be told, after working my regular 9 -5, coming home, doing all the wedding stuff that needs to be done in the week and a half before weddings, and then organizing my things and packing to move into my new home. . . well, as book lovers yourselves, I am sure you can understand why I just want to take comfort in reading a good book to relax, and not necessarily write about it afterwards.
So, I have decided to just give myself a break and take in the moments I can to relax and enjoy the process leading up to the Big Day rather than feeling guilty about not keeping up with everything. I figure if the college bloggers can do that over finals, surely I can for my wedding? I may post here and there until then when I find a little extra time, but until the week of January 23rd, my postings will be touch and go (if anyone is interested in guest posting, just let me know - I certainly appreciate the help). I also will be on Twitter(@bibliobrouhaha) and Gchat here and there, as well.
Upon returning, I will be back just as I was with reviews, the roundup, the memes that I participate in, a great interview with an author of a highly anticipated upcoming book. . . I am looking forward to getting back to normalcy, but until then, I have to make room somewhere for the things I have to do right now, so I hope you guys understand. I really love blogging. I love the community here, but if I don't give myself a break somewhere, I am going to go nuts. And then I'll miss the moment. And I definitely don't want to look back thinking I missed something leading up to my wedding.
Thanks for your patience - can't wait to be back in full force!
