Today is a day of changes. Sort. The following are five commandments of the Book Boulevard that I’ve sort of been following already, but that I wished to share with you as well. Part of my goal with this blog is to be transparent. I want to share with where I can and where I deem appropriate.
Your heart’s racing and you’re blinking at the clock every couple of minutes. You have that list of things you need to do—whether it be in your head or on paper or in a calendar or in a planner—and you’re incredibly conscious of just how many things are on that list.
How on Earth are you going to get all of it done? Will you get it all done? Heart’s racing, head’s pounding, maybe you’re trembling a little.
I like to call this feeling overwhelmed.
Do you like to talk? Maybe not.
But do you like to discuss things, to think about something and see what other people think? I do. It’s one of my favorite things.
Today, I’d like to get meta and discuss the idea of discussing things.
I’m back, and I’ll be making a few small changes. Nothing huge (I think) and nothing scary (I hope), but something to breathe a little more life into this blog.
Tomorrow is one of those days on which I will invariably get at least one book. If I don’t, it’s not exactly an exceptional birthday, but that may just be me.
So, today, I thought it might be a good time to discuss book hauls and why I, personally, don’t do them.
