I have decided to blog about more than books. The idea is to get the creative juices flowing and get back in the habit of posting by writing about my life and perspective. I am also trying to stay off Twitter and Facebook for the month of January.Continue reading
So the question I have been mulling for the last couple of months (but not for the first time) is whether to keep blogging or call it quits after 14 years. I think I want to give at least one more try at making it work. Let me give you some insight into why.Continue reading

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a joyous and safe New Year.
