It's Beginning to Feel a lot like Summer


After nearly 9 years of blogging and posting (2 to 5 days a week), I'm feeling like I need a break. We had a few 90 degree days last week and, now, I'm ready for an early summer and looking forward to trying a few new things.  I'll still be reading, of course, and I'll update my "Books Read in 2017" list here as well -- just no regular posts.  Wishing you all a nice summer!

  4. I'm wondering if I will feel that way after 9 years. I'm only 6 1/2 years in. I can see it happening, though.

  5. I am right with you my friend! I began blogging in 2009 and the past few months I have been totally burned out. I was blogging a minimum (often) of 5 days a week (sometimes 6 and occasionally 7 and I have 2 blogs!) This week is the first time I only posted twice on Cody's. I soooo want to take a huge break myself...might have to do that. Enjoy your well-deserved time off! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  6. Have a wonderful summer of reading, family, and fun! I took a break from regular posts (memes, etc) and felt much better when I didn't feel the pressure to post anything beyond reviews. Enjoy!

  7. Enjoy the break, enjoy summer and your new books! I totally get you. I've been blogging about books off and on for over 6 years, and have reinvented myself with several different blogs along the way. But I always come back because chatting with other book lovers is irresistible :) 9 years is quite admirable. I'll be stopping by to see your updated book lists.

  9. Enjoy your summer break, Diane! I know the weather has been unseasonably warm back east lately. It's good to read without the pressure of posting reviews. (I've been away for a few days so I am getting to my blog visits late.) Anyway, Take as much time as you need to refresh your reading and blogging! :)

  10. I'll miss reading your posts, but know I that sometimes bloggers just need a break. I hope you have an amazing summer and look forward to seeing you posting again.

  11. Enjoy!! It was 100 degrees all this weekend so it certainly feels like summer here.
    If I took a break, I don't think I'd come back so I just post when I want to and leave it at that.

  12. Summer and trying new things--a wonderful combination. I do hope you will enjoy the freedom of your break, that you'll thrill to your reading, and...just know that I, for one, will miss you.
    Best wishes,
    Judith

  18. And I'm just beginning to jump back into blogging (well, at least reading & commenting!) after a long break. We've settled into our new home in Oregon and I'm beginning to feel like I have a routine. Retirement for my husband and myself has really changed the way my day flows, but I'm hoping to get back to the blogging. I may actually catch up on all your posts by the time you return! ;) Have a lovely summer, Diane! I hope it isn't too miserably hot the entire time! xo

    I have just returned to blogging and will catch up with you again, when you return from yours.

  20. I think your blogging break is very much well deserved! I hope you are enjoying the time away and reading lots of great books!
