Normal service will be resumed

Just a quick update to say that I’m closing a transaction at work at the moment, which has meant not a lot of reading (or time online generally) this past fortnight. All going well, normal service and posting should resume next week.

Which will be good, as I’m about as behind as I can be on my targets for Proust and the Russian novels. Blogging would be so much easier if work didn’t sometimes get in the way…

  1. It never ceases to amaze me how much we book-bloggers achieve with our limited resources – there is usually only one of us and yet we turn out article after article on top of our day-job. Perhaps you should get an allowance from some charitable foundation? Not much chance of that but at least it assures publishers that some people appreciate good literature

  2. Books are nothing without readers Tom, and I hope it does reassure some publishers that even if the more interesting titles may not always sell so well, they do have a committed audience.

    Or an audience that should be committed, given we do this without pay…

    Either way, an audience, that’s the main thing.

  3. I hear you on the work thing regarding your hiatus. With my uni obligations on top of my job I tried to keep the blog going and was frustrated at the trickle I managed to get on the blog. Now, when I posted my last review in December, I did not expect that it would be months (and counting) before I was able to get back in the swing of it. And even of I get a few reviews down in the near future I don’t expect I’ll get a decent run down until June, and that’ll no doubt be hit again by the time the next semester starts in October.

  4. What are you doing at Uni again Stewart?

    Time can get swallowed, I do occasional film reviews for a website and some months watching a film and writing 500-1,000 words on it is genuinely difficult, which is remakable really. Finding time to read can be a real challenge too – I’m not reading nearly as much a I’d like, but then there’s also friends, films, games, work…

    Anyway, I hope you do get some time over the Summer, before the October term kicks in.
