    State of the Blog

    I didn’t have time to write my weekly reading down my TBR pile post on Monday last week. I was going to write a two week catch up post this week. But I’ve barely read anything – I didn’t finish a single book last week. So I wasn’t too bothered about writing it. I’ve yet to finish anything this week. I’d say I’ve got lots going on and I have but it’s not the full reason. I’ve got no motivation for books and audiobooks and ebooks. I’m reading loads of fanfic and stuff on message boards but not the actual books and that. I have a couple of review books…

    It’s Okay

    For me blogging is an outlet. And it’s a pretty good one.  I’m generally very open in what I share about myself although I try and protect other people’s privacy.

In addition to the two books listed here I’ve listened to two thirds of an audiobook. It doesn’t feel like I’ve read much at all this week.

    Reading Down My TBR Pile – Week 15

    A combination of a couple of train journeys – including to Birmingham and back – and several late nights sat enjoying the cool of the evening in the garden mean I think I’ve read the most this week that I have since I started writing these weekly “what I’ve been reading” posts. In addition to the books listed here, I also read part of another book but found the start of it boring so gave up after a few pages. I’m undecided as to whether I’ll go back to it or not. And for the second week running I didn’t buy or otherwise get any books so I really have…
