Check In

Howdy, howdy!

Well, life has been crazy busy but we seem to be hitting our stride and finding our new normal (to some extent or another). This little blogging break has been a good thing for me and mine as we recently adopted Bookworm 5 (a girl! a sister!) and have been settling into life with her. Things are going well and daily progress is being made but it definitely requires some concentrated efforts and so blogging took a back seat there for the spring. However, I can feel life returning to this ol' blog friend of mine. I double checked and I've been writing here at Reading to Know for ten years this summer. Ten years! It's a little hard to say goodbye to this place in any kind of permanent way.

Life with five kids is a little bit more crazy but I think there'll be time to jot down a quick thought or two on the books I've (still!) been reading. That'll be better than nothing, as I've discovered that not processing my thoughts in writing post-read is rather disastrous for my memory. (As in, I barely remember what I liked about the book even one week later!)

So, hello again. It's nice to feel in a position to come back to blogging a wee bit. And just in time too because we wouldn't want to forget about Ye Olde Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge now, would we? I can't NOT host that and July is just around the corner so . . . get ready!

Chronicles of Narnia Reading Challenge

Congrats on number 5! That's absolutely wonderful. :)

And I'm also glad to hear that the Narnia challenge is on track.

I actually just looked yesterday to see if you'd snuck a post by me, then I find this one today! :-D

Barbara H. said...

Congratulations on your new addition to your family! Glad everyone's getting adjusted fairly well.

I find that, too, that I can't remember much about a book I've read if I don't write down my thoughts.

And I will be celebrating ten years of blogging this July also! I haven't decided whether or what to do to mark the occasion.
