I don't only post reviews: 06/25/16

For ten years now I have kept my promise of a book review each and every day. That's 365 or 366 posts every year. But sometimes there's more to talk about than just telling you about what I've read.

Sometimes I need to keep you updated on changes to the site. It could be improvements, new features, a redesign, or a new archive. Although I went cold turkey on accepting review copies in April 2015, I still receive a steady flow of offers. I always refer to my post: Why I'm no longer accepting review copies in my answer.

Then there are questions like, how do you read as much as you do? Or, how do you find the time to do what you do?

Since I like and need to refer back to articles I've written, I realized there is a need for an archive of my articles. So I've made one and added it the top navigation of the site.

In making the archive, I rediscovered a bunch of fun posts I made in the early days of this book blog. There were top ten lists and there were in depth but slightly cheeky readings of classic books, like Don Quixote, Swann's Way, and Ulysses. I'm planning to do a new series soon with the uncensored version of From Here to Eternity.
