open the pages, read the words, savor the magic
Hello, Bookerie. I am back.
I apologize for not being around in this blog for almost a year but life can put so many obstacles in your way that derail your blogging plans. I can’t promise I will be as active as I was before, prior to the hiatus, but I will try not to leave this blog empty.
The long and short of it, I was diagnosed with Bell’s palsy last month and I spent a lot of my time in bed, resting per the doctor’s order, and so what better way to spend my time than to read books? (E-book, actually. Because I ran out of room to put print books by the bedside.) I have many books to review and to celebrate and to criticize too so here I am. I’ve started reading some new authors, also old ones, and what I discovered is that re-reading books can give you a different perspective on the story and characters.
As much as I loved staying at home to watch TV shows or going out to the cinema to watch movies, I find that reading is still my biggest and most favorite escape. That’s the reason why I want to revisit this blog and make another attempt at reviving it. Don’t worry – as long as I have a love for the written word, Bookerie will never disappear.
