Let's Catch Up!

I know it's been awhile since I just had a chatty post. In fact, I've been a bit MIA from the whole blogging thing for awhile. I've still been reading some blogs and a few books, but not very active. During this time, I've learned something important about myself, that I need to allow myself times where I just shut down. It's funny, because it's almost like being an introvert on the internet...I cannot keep producing content 24/7, I need times where I'm just an observer or not even present at all to recharge.

Another problem I've been having lately is that I can't seem to finish books. I mean I start them and they're wonderful and I think they're great but then I can't finish them. I've never had so many unfinished books in my life! I'm not exactly sure what the mental block is, but I really don't think it's that the books aren't good...I just can't finish them for some reason. Sometimes I think this problem results from too much choice and is in fact the downside of having so many books. other news, it's hot like summer here. I cannot believe it's already mid-April, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? My blogiversary came and went and I haven't done a thing for it. I'm not going to BEA this year, which is coming up at the end of May and while I'm sorry to miss meeting some people going for the first time, I'm also relieved not to take on the financial obligation. OH! And my brother got engaged and is getting married this summer which is super cool and fun! My oldest niece turned ten (how did this happen?) recently and the youngest five. Time blazes by doesn't it?

Also, I've recently started tutoring again and I had forgotten how wonderful it is to be able to actually help people with reading. It's fab.

Enough about me! Tell me about you! What good books are you reading? Summer plans? Going to BEA? Do tell.
