A little bit of housekeeping

The usual excuses: Work’s been crazy, what free time I can smuggle in would rather be spent on reading books that are more affective than usual, this blog is moldering and the laziest part of me does enjoy its virtual stasis.

I think, also, that having a Goodreads account—and updating it regularly, even to the point of annoying the handful of contacts I have there—is a consolation. You’re welcome to back my illusion that I remain hopeful of being a dutiful book blogger—add me if ye wish. Beware, however, that I have a tendency to add one book to my “Currently Reading” list, only to mark it under “Should Be Reading” three days later, then eventually pitch it into the hellhole that is “To Read.” See y’all!

  1. I’m starting to think GoodReads is the new perfect excuse to not blog. It’s so convenient to just go “currently reading” then “read” (or, as you said, to-read/DNF) and then ask people some questions about what they are reading, resulting in feeling all accomplished and not blogging. Or, at least, that’s how it works for me a lot of the time.

  2. I use Goodreads almost exclusively for tracking the books I’ve already read (and on a few rare occasions, the book I’m currently reading), so I can’t entirely relate to the woes of messy labeling, however I think almost every Goodreads user understands that reading is a lot more complicated than simple statuses. It’s entirely normal to start a book and then set it aside – we’ve all been there.
