However, I'm currently juggling four, despite the fact that I despise reading more than one novel at a time. Anyone? Anyone? I started John Banville's The Sea, and Nuala O'Faolain's Are You Somebody? to get a jump start on the Ireland Reading Challenge. But it's been slow going and I find that I'm desperately trying to make myself read both. Fear not! I've decided that I'm going to finish these at some point in the future, so I'm taking a small break before picking them up again.
I ventured to Barnes and Noble yesterday to buy myself a little Downton-like read since J and I just had a 5-hour marathon of Downton Abbey watching. The trip was successful and I'm working on carving out time during the busy week ahead.
This is more than just a report of the fact that I'm TV watching instead of reading (I'm actually in shock of the truth of this statement), or that work has been a non-stop blur of meetings and late nights and weekend email threads, or that I've been a bit of a lazy blogger. No. I wanted to mention that this is the start of me blogging less frequently than before. I'm embarking on a new creative journey that I'm really excited about. For months, I've been scheming a project that would focus on the local aspect of my life, and that, of course, requires that I dedicate much more time to bringing it to life. Don't worry... I'll be sharing for all of you that are interested.
I'll still be scouring book blogs for recommendations and to leave little comments. And I still plan on hosting a read along of sorts that I hope you'll join me for as well.
How's 2012 treating you thus far?
