So what's next? I want to talk about books more than review them. It's a fine line, I know, but I want to move toward writing more about what I'm reading and why. I'm imagining it as book journaling, with more emphasis on the book than my life, but I'm most interested in exploring the books from a personal point of view than a professional one. I've realized I have no desire to be an objective book reviewer; I don't want blogging to feel like work. At some point, blogging became an endurance sport filled with spreadsheets outlining publication dates and galleys wished for and received. I think the biggest disconnect with the blog is that what I was reading became disconnected with what was appearing on the blog. On Twitter, I have the freedom to write about what I'm reading when I'm reading, and I want to find a way to talk about what I'm reading in this space.
I want to spend 2017 reading more, writing more, and blogging more. I don't know precisely what this space will evolve into in the coming months, but I hope to see this space be an object of pride again rather than a neglected object of guilt.
