Weekend Update for March 14/15, 2015: Beginning Again.

After nearly a year away from my home here at A Literary Odyssey, I have finally come to the decision to resurrect my blog and find a home again on the internet. I'm sure that many have forgotten about this space, but I haven't. While I have changed a great deal since starting this, and while I am not in the same mental place, I need a place to start over, and this is as good as any. Besides, I have a hard time letting go.

I imagine that in the next few weeks I'll give the place a makeover, as well as removing some old posts and challenges. I also want to "catch you up" on things that have been going on, as well as writing about books.

The biggest thing I have learned in my time away is that I need to make time for myself to do what I love-read books and write about them. I'm hoping I can do that regularly. But I also want to write about school, my husband, cats...and anything else I find important. You're invited, of course, but I'm just giving you a head's up. :)

So, tell me what you've been up to, what book you're reading, and anything else you feel inspired to say.

  3. Wow you sound just like me. I also recently resurrected a neglected blog with the principal aim to blog about books but also looking to include other things like family, work or the lack of it and pets, whatever comes along. Looking forward to your posts.
