Reading…

…has been happening a lot in the past few months. Given that I have a lot of time in the evenings, it’s not surprising that I’m spending it with my books. Even though I always think that I should write a review (something of that sort) once I finish a book, I never get around to doing it. Laziness, I tell ya.

Anyway, so I thought starting a different blog for that might help…maybe that will push me to doing it? Not that I want to force myself to write something about every book I read…but then there are some great ones and some not-so-great ones I come across and I don’t want to miss putting down my thoughts about them. So yeah, we will see how that goes.

Here’s the link to that page. I haven’t written anything yet…will get around to updating it this weekend.

    you know…..you should just make that a page in your current blog. It’s difficult maintaining two blogs. after all your bonding with books too is a part of you and your writing. Just my opinion. I’ve had two blogs, and sometimes one usually get sidetrack….it’s a pain too … integrating my two blogs was the best thing i did. give that a thought.

    aahh, i never thought about that…thanks for the suggestion, A..

    since i created the blog already, i will keep it up for a while..and then maybe when i get bored, i will merge it with this 😀

    thanks again, dear…hugs!

    Sounds like a wonderful idea.
    I have been thinking on the same lines since quite sometime but just like you I have never been able to write a review. The only book review I managed writing so far was of ” “Marley & Me“”

    Good luck buddy 😀

    Can’t wait to read your first post 🙂

    Cheers!!

    i’ve never written a review…and i’m pretty sure i can’t write a good one, CB…so i might just end up putting some after thoughts of the books..nothing fancy :D..

    i read yours on Marley and me..i loved it!

    thanks, CB

    that’s a wonderful idea..in fact if you are okay some of us can become guest writers as well so that you have variety of book reviews on your book blog…

    I’m ready if you are 🙂 Go get started girl,would love to read the reviews and know which books to pick and to leave…

    Nu, better yet, would you like to be one of the authors? why just guest post? no pressure or anything, but think about it…i was gonna ask you abt it anyway…cause i know you are an enthu reader and i wud love if you shared your views on things you read…as i said, we don’t have to write about everything we read, but just whatever made an impact…so lemme know…
