Anyway, earlier this year I talked about how I wanted to 1) read more of the Top 100 books and 2) keep posting every two weeks.
Goal the First:
I totally jumped into more List books with both feet, and have so far read at least as many of them as I did last year. But my reading pace has been feeling increasingly frenetic and thus not very enjoyable, and while I'll definitely read more List books this year, I need to slow down. The last thing I want to do is finish this project and not want to read anymore, or something like that. I'm not trying to make it seem like reading a book and writing a few paragraphs about it is a lot of work or anything, but it's not no work, either.
Goal the Second:
It's been increasingly difficult posting every two weeks, possibly just due to what I got up to in April, but also because of how few List book reviews I have ready to go at any given time. What I'm trying really hard to avoid is a scenario where I haven't read anything from the List and go without posting for months on end.
So once again I'm cutting back services, but I think it'll be ok. Here's the plan:
- More thorough Current Distractions posts. If I'm supposedly so busy, what exactly is it that I'm doing? The usual round-ups are a few paragraphs thrown together at the last minute, but it wouldn't be hard to do better than that.
- One post per month. Either reviews or whatever else (I really need to post another Board Member Bio at some point, don't I?). I know this means that the actual percentage of content on the blog will decrease, and I hate it, but I think it'll be better in the long run.
Believe it or not, despite my whining, I do have quite a few reviews and other posts essentially ready to go. It's the Top 100 books that are holding me up, on an "as ever" sort of basis.
