Book Review Hiatus

This summer is going to be extremely busy, so I have decided not to accept any new books to review between now and September 1, 2011. I will, of course, read and review the books currently in my possession, but I simply cannot accept any new ones for the time being. If you have any questions, comments, or really good jokes, please don’t hesitate to contact me. There’s a form on the About page. Thanks!

Hiatus Announcement and Links to Tide You Over

Okay, this is getting out of hand. I hereby declare a blogging vacation until after the BookCrossing Convention. If I review any books, the posts will be scheduled for after I get back on April 18. If you are waiting for a review by me, I will email you when I finish it, since all my reviews end up on GoodReads and LibraryThing as soon as they’re written (as opposed to being scheduled so I only have one post per day, like on this here blog).  If there’s anything especially timely I want to post, I’ll post it, but for the time being don’t expect anything new here until mid-April.

For those of you still on the fence about the BookCrossing Convention, we’re now offering day passes.  It’s going to be so much fun – you don’t want to miss it!

To tide you over, I have a meme: a list of speculative fiction reviewer blogs. Yes, I’m listed. To add your own blog, visit Grasping for the Wind.

Hat tip to On a Pale Star.

Hiatus

This week’s a wash.  I’ll be back Monday, probably.  Maybe not, but probably.

Nothing momentous or tragic has occurred; I’m just really worn out and in need of a break. I’ll be back when I’m feeling better.

Edit: Okay, I’ll probably be back for Bloggiesta, provided I get some more sleep between now and then.

Brief Hiatus II

I’m off to Amsterdam to attend the 2010 BookCrossing Convention. I’ll probably have at least intermittent email access, but I won’t be doing any blogging while I’m there.

And before you ask: no, I’m not concerned about robbers seeing this because (1) you don’t know where I live, (2) my dear husband will be home the whole time, and (3) I don’t own anything worth stealing. Well, unless you count all the tons of books I give away for free. :P

Brief Hiatus

I’m off to Japan for vacation. I’ll probably have at least intermittent email access, but I won’t be doing any blogging while I’m there.

And before you ask: no, I’m not concerned about robbers seeing this because (1) you don’t know where I live, (2) I’ve duped my friends into house-sitting, and (3) I don’t own anything worth stealing. Well, unless you count all the tons of books I give away for free. :P

In honor of my trip, here are some terribly trippy (and somewhat nauseating) animated stereograms of old Japan. Enjoy.
