I have never been a real book blogger the way many of you are. I’ve always written about books because they are the single biggest influence in my life, and I have a terrible memory so I actually need to write down my thoughts in order to remember the book later. But mostly, I started this blog while working at an emotionally and mentally crushing job. I wrote every single day, usually for several hours, whether or not I actually published it. I created a false backlog, transferring reviews over from my old blogwanting to collect them all in the same place, but also just needing more content to occupy me at work.

I finally left that job three months ago, and since then, I’ve had a hard time posting here as often as I would like to. I don’t need it as a desperate emotional crutch, and I’ve already gone through my backlog of books that needed to be reviewed.

I used to have a blog, one I started back in college. I wrote there for seven years, largely about random nonsense, but also about politics and religion as I started working through what I believed about both. I stopped writing there about two years ago, then started my book blog about a year ago, but lately I’ve been missing that broader outletso I’m starting a new blog in addition to this one. I make no promises regarding content (most likely we’ll end up with random nonsense again), but you’re welcome to join me over there as well!

    If anyone (Katrina—hoping this notifies you if I link to your blog) saw this post earlier today, the link for the new blog was incorrect. It’s been fixed now.
