Testing, testing…1, 2, 3. Is this thing on? I guess so. Blogger looks a lot different. My computer looks a lot different. Hell, *I* look a lot different. When I did the first Book a Week with Jen cycle, Myspace was the shit, and Twitter was a tech nerd-only service. ebooks? ewhat?
I started Book a Week with Jen in 2007 because I was in the absolute pit of depression and despair. I’ve confessed that since I turned that first cycle into an ebook, though the public reason I gave was that I was tired of only reading books I could turn into work. I haven’t fallen out of love with reading, but I’ve become more distracted from it. Social media is a wonderful tool, but a time consuming one. I no longer live alone, so I no longer have as many blank nights on my calendar, which were previously filled with books.
So, for 2013, I’m cranking the blogger and reading engine back up again. Tomorrow, I’ll pick the first book in the third cycle of Book a Week with Jen. I have no idea what it will be. So stay tuned….
