A Brief Announcement

It may come as a surprise to some (you can e-mail me on the side if you want to ask particular questions) but I'm officially back on staff at 5 Minutes for Books!





Here are a few Q&A's I can think to head off right off the bat:

Q: Why?
A: I like Jennifer? And being on staff there stretches me as a reader and a review writer.

Q: What does this mean for Reading to Know?
A: Nothing. I plan to keep this site very much as-is.

Q: How will this change your reading time?
A: I don't think it will change it very much. One thing I have learned the past couple of years is that reading time is incredibly valuable. I still have no intention of accepting books for review that do not spark a personal interest for me, either here or at 5 Minutes for Books.

Q: Will your writing style be different between the two sites?
A: I sincerely hope not. I am welcomed and encouraged to review books over there exactly as I do them here, and so that is my plan. Basically, it's just more book-ish thoughts from yours truly, on two different sites.

Q: Will you announce on Reading to Know when you've had a post go up over at 5 Minutes for Books?
A: Sometimes. Not all the time. Depends on whether or not I think my readers here will have a great interest in the book/thought being discussed.

My first post
announcing my re-commitment to 5 Minutes for Books went up today. In it, I talk about the value of re-reading books. (Basically, that post is an extension of my meandering thoughts from Reading to Know.) Naturally, I'm curious for your thoughts on this post as it's something that several of us have been discussing of late.

In the meantime, Reading to Know is business as usual. That is all. Thank you. ;)

I think you are a great reviewer and love to read your posts! One question...rereading, I never get time to get back to my favorites when I am trying to stretch myself and read everything I didn't in my youth. Then there are so many new ones that I just have to get to!

I love question and answer #1. Who can argue with that??

I have to admit I was surprised, mainly because of all that's on your plate and your cutting back on posting here. But I'll be happy to see you there. I've thought about unsubscribing there and just going back for the monthly Nightstand posts because it seems lately the great majority of the books they mention are not ones I am interested in. But I imagine you'll help revert that. :-)

I'm curious how often you'll be posting there...I do enjoy the reviews there, but had decided to nix it when I was trying to cut down on the RSS feeds...
