taking a break

.
News. My husband and I have just purchased our first home. It requires a bit of fixing-up before move-in at the end of the month, so for several weeks here I will have little time to read books, much less write about them. Posting will be rather sporadic for a little while. Don't feel neglected if I fail to respond to comments immediately or visit your blog in the next few weeks! I'm still here and will resume blogging after the move is all settled.

In the meantime, Happy reading! I'm sure when I get back to Google Reader there'll be a zillion new books you've all written up that I want to read, and I'll have good reason to haunt the public library that's four blocks from my new house!

Congratulations on your purchase! Hope the next few weeks of preparation make it into "home" before you even get fully moved in.

Lots of room for bookshelves, I'll bet!

Congratulations! I hope you have fun settling into the new place.

Lots of work! But well worth it. We'll be looking forward to your return! Who else is going to recommend all those great animal books to us? :-)

Good luck with the move! I hope things go smoothly for you (and that you can sneak a few minutes here and there of reading!).

I feel your pain of not having reading time. We've been redoing our condo and I've been running all around it like a madwoman after work doing things, so no time to read there. I did have a pile of TBR books in one of the bathrooms, just in case!

Thank you all. I'm totally exhausted after one whole day of cleaning, and I only got half the house done! Today is a rest day; maybe I'll read up a bit.
