When it snows, it's a blizzard

I tried to adjust the title to account for snowmageddon but I am not sure it works …

The reference is to a phenomenon some of you bookish types might experience.  I was in one of those moods where I can’t decide what to read. Despite a mountain of ARCs/review copies and shelves of unread books I was having a hard time figuring out just what I was in the mood for.

Well, I got onto a bit of a Young Adult run, and found some authors whose backlist I wanted to read, and so I got out of my rut and left my melancholy behind. But at the expense of the never ending – and always growing – TBR pile.

Whilst this was going on I had some publishers sending me emails and is their wont – and their profession – they made these books seem like must reads. So I said: “Oh, sure. Send that one along.”  And “Yes, please.” Etc. Etc.

So here I sit with a growing backlog of fascinating books that I have promised to read.

But at least I will have no trouble figuring out what I want to read for awhile …

About the author

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
