Hiatus (sort of)

After giving this some extensive thought, I've decided to take off the next four weeks and subject you all to my blog's first hiatus ever. The reason for this is that I've felt pretty much drained of energy lately and I need a little bit more me-time. One week just won't cut it, two weeks might not quite get me back into a more energetic state, and while three weeks oughta get the job done I'm adding week number four to be on the safe side.

And I'm not completely gone anyway. Old habits (also known as daily blogging) die hard and so I will at least stop by on Sundays to share what I read during the week and if there've been some book-shaped goodies in the mail I'll post about those too.

On a different note. I've already scheduled a few posts for the next couple of weeks. Not "real" posts, but interesting enough to make you want to stop by. First of all there will be the February and March editions of the 2 by 2 Giveaway. Secondly I'll squeeze in the next Old Books in need of a New Home post during those four weeks as well. Thirdly I'll participate in the Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop which will run from March 17th through March 22nd.
Last but not least, as some of you might have noticed, I passed the 1.000 followers mark just recently which translates into a wee little celebration, or shall I say the 1.000 Followers Giveaway? That one'll be coming up on February 27th.

Everything will be back to its usual schedule on March 19th!


  1. I hope you will feel better you, you really deserve some time for yourself so don't worry for us, we will still be there when you are back ^^

    all the best and thanks you for everything you do for us

  2. I've actually been contemplating doing the same in the near future. I think it's important to step back a little when you feel like you need the break. And I agree with miki, we'll all still be here when you come back :)

  3. Enjoy your YOU time! I will be looking forward to the giveaways :))

  4. Oh yes, me time is important! Enjoy your hiatus! You shouldn't be writing many IMM posts as you are not buying any books, right, :)!?
    And wow, you have quite a few giveways coming up in the next few weeks. They should keep us busy!

  5. You're such a prolific blogger, I'm not surprised you need a break. Just do what you like and don't feel guilty about not posting.

    I posted every day in 2011 and this year I find it very hard not to post every day. I feel a bit like a naughty child if I don't But I'm getting better....

    Enjoy your me-time!

  6. I completely understand!! We all need to recharge. (And yes, daily blogging habits die hard- mine are still trying to kick back to survival). Enjoy your time off. Maybe go to the spa? :)
