On Goodbyes

Oh, friends.

It's just not in me anymore. I've loved the time I've spent on this blog - I've loved the people it's allowed me to meet, the events it's allowed me to participate in, the new books I'd never have read without the people I've met & the events I've participated in.

But I just don't have the desire anymore. I still want to talk about books - I definitely still want to read them - but blogging just isn't how I want to do those things anymore. So I think this is goodbye.

I'm still going to be in the book world, reading your blogs and joining in with the fun, bookish stuff going on in the world. I'm just going to have to find a new way to do those things. For the few of you interested in still keeping up with me, I have a whole list of bookish accounts that I am much more active on than this blog - come find me if you want!

Goodreads

LibraryThing

Shelfari

Riffle

BookLikes

Twitter


It's been a good run - a wonderful experience - and I'm leaving with nothing but good memories. (And a giant TBR list.) Here's to new experiences and adventures, and new ways of expressing the reading life that I love.

If you need me, I'll be hanging out with these two - reading books.

You'll be missed but I can see why you'd rather hang out with those two cuties - I can't believe how big they've gotten.

Elizabeth! I will miss your blog for sure but am glad that you will still be around on social media and such. I wouldn't want to lose your friendship or not be able to talk about books with you. I know this must have been a hard decision but if you've gotten to this point then it's the right one. See you around elsewhere!

Thanks for so many years! I sure have loved reading you. You're my very favorite blogger. :)

I completely understand. I've only been publishing blog posts once or twice a month for a year. I haven't given up on it completely but I don't think I'll ever go back to the many posts I used to do. I'm going to go make sure I follow you on some of the other sites.

I'm sorry to hear you'll be leaving but I'll catch up with you in other places! I think spending time with your adorable kids is worth it - they get cuter in every picture!

I'll miss you, Elizabeth! You were one of my very first blogging friends :-) But I completely understand your desire to step away and spend more time with the kids, and I'm glad you'll still be around social media. That way we can continue to add to each other's TBR piles - muahaha :-D
