This has been coming for quite a while. I’ve been feeling burnt out and less passionate about book blogging for a long time. My posting has been slowing down. I quickly throw together ‘reviews’ when I think about it. I’ve just been barely participating. As a result, the connection with other readers and bloggers is pretty much gone. Without conversation, blogging is pretty darn boring and lonely.
It’s time to pull the plug and step away from book blogging for a while. I want to read and enjoy a book without thinking about what to say about it. I want to read a book without having other bloggers’ thoughts about the book pestering me at the back of my mind.
I’m not sure if I’ll be back but I hope I do come back. I love interacting with other readers and love talking with others about the books we’re reading.
I’m not completely abandoning blogging. I’ve started a new blog where I’m sharing some of my library work. Feel free to hop over for children, tween, and teen displays, programs, and storytimes!
