That's right. 46 days left until this horrible year is over with. I shouldn't say horrible, I should say 'year that challenged me and stretched me and made me realize what I needed." In other words, one of those years where so many things fall apart. I wasn't going to say anything here, but I see now of course that it's affecting even my blogging. My husband and I separated in the summer. We are still in the midst of sorting everything out. I am trying valiantly to get to my 100 books total, and write fabulous reviews of the really good books I've been reading, but I'm a private person, and as much as this separation is good in the long run, it's emotionally draining and I can't think of bookish things to write about yet. I love my books, I just can't write much at this time. So please bear with me, I miss all of you and will be back as soon as I can. I won't say I'm taking a blogging break! I'm not! I'm sorting my life out, and reading as much as I can to help me stay as centered as I can. I really wish it weren't affecting my blogging, but it has.
So stay tuned. In the meantime, Nymeth has a lovely post up today on Christmas bookish shopping. It's fabulous. I want it all! those mugs with books! and I will be back as soon as I can.
