On Hiatus

Dear Readers, Friends, Fellow-Booklovers, and Blog-Buddies:

I am going to take an extended break from blogging.    Do know I will be back.   Do know I love you all and will likely miss you terrifbly.   I just need to shake things up and do some thing different for awhile.

Maybe it is Spring. I want to be outside. I want to get more fit. I want to bake more pies and cook more family dinners. I need to explore and learn new things.  I should volunteer more and accept more substitute teaching opportunities. I need to become more proficient in my tutoring duties, skills (and perhaps marketing.)   I just might find a new job or clarify what kind of job I should be working towards. I know I am in the middle of a perplexing reading slump. I don’t yet know if I will go on hiatus with goodreads.com but probably will suspend my Twitter activity. My goal of 100 books this year is most definitely scrapped!

I enjoy blogging, yapping about the books I am reading and learning about the books you are enjoying.   I adore so many of you and love reading your posts!   I cheer you all on for your reading challenges and readalongs.   I still intend to read  Murakami’s The Wind-up Bird Chronicle with Maree in June.   Hopefully I will be back for Dewey’s Readathon in April.    I am loyal to this blog and it really does mean the world to me so don’t think I’m abandoning it. Heck, I just might change my mind tomorrow and you’ll see me commenting here there and everywhere – who knows!

But today, I feel the necessity of a big step-away.   Email me anytime at BkClubCare [at] gmail [dot] com.    Send me the craziest pie recipe you think I should try.  ☺

  1. Sometimes, we need a break to renew ourselves. You are doing the right thing. I have been thinking of that but haven’t been able to. Now maybe I will follow your lead. I am reading so little. Life seems to moving around me and I seem to be at the same place.

    Time to take stock.

    I wish you the very best in whatever you do. And hope to see you soon.


  2. I feel you Care! I’m going on break now and mostly focusing on getting fitter in that time. I just need some time away. Though I’m a complete worry wart when it comes to my blog so I’ve filled it up with posts so it doesn’t go blank while I unplug. I need to learn to let go and just disappear for awhile!

  3. Have a really wonderful hiatus. Sometimes, that’s important. I do want pictures of all the pie you make, since I love pictures of pie.

    And yes, the LOTR marathon went better than expected. When I watched the movies in the past, I really hated them. This time, I sort of liked them — I understood more, enjoyed more, learned more. So it was good 🙂

  4. You’re being very sensible and will come back with a fresh purpose and a renewed sense of vigor. Just hurry the hell up. Kidding. I’ll miss you.

  5. Sometimes we spend too much time reading blogs and not enough time reading books, and sometimes we do need to just get away from the written word altogether and do other things for a while. Relax and don’t set any big goals for your time away, is my advice!

  6. Dearest CARE…..will MISS YOU I’m sure, BUT ONE KNOWS when making changes needs to be incorporated into the DAILY RYTHM of LIFE!!!!! Hope you will feel revived and nourished when you do return!!!!! Maybe absence makes the HEART grow in APPRECIATION!!!!! BEST WISHES*****

  7. We all need a break from blogging once in a while (I took an unintended break most of Nov/Dec but am back now, but only blog once a week or so). I can’t keep up the crazy pace of posting a couple times a week like I used to!

  8. Oh, a bientot, Care! (That means we’re going to see you again EN FRANCAIS which I parle fantastically bien.) I hope that while you are gone you find wonderful things to do and be, and I will be thrilled to see you back, whenever that may be. #hughughug

    (I have no pie recipe, I am not a good pie-maker. But if I come across one I will alert you at once.)

    Some times we just need to refresh ourselves. I hope you enjoy your break and that you get to do all the things you want to do!
