How many books?? How fast?? Not fast enough??

Fellow bloggers and fellow readers do you ever get the feeling that....

 (yes that is my own crude little drawing!!)

there are too many books, so little time? Just about every pitch I get, I want to say yes. But realistically I can't. I want to read to everything, but I can't.

When I started blogging, I read about two or three books at a time. At the time, that seemed like a lot. Now it doesn't seem like a lot. Why? Sometimes you're really into one book, and then you're not. I put one book aside for a day or two and start another. Then the cycle starts again. Anyone else get that feeling? Right now, I'm currently engrossed into six books. But trust me I have been able to keep each plot straight.

Now, what about my reading pace?

Sometimes I can read a book at the pace of...


Speedy Gonzales. But other times I read at the pace of his cousin...

Slowpoke Rodriguez. Don't worry authors and publicists, if I gave you a specific date I will honor it. I just think sometimes as a blogger/reader you can hit a bit of a wall. I'm coming out of that wall. It just feels that sometimes I'm not doing enough on my blog. Fellow readers/bloggers ever get that feeling?

  1. I get like that at times. It's always good to take a bit of a break. I usually do it during the Christmas holidays and again in the spring or summer. Sometimes I take a week, other times a month, it just depends.

  2. That's a good idea, I have to try it that way.

  3. Proofreading can make the difference between a mediocre and dismissed manuscript and a standout book. Skimping on the proofreading can result in a series of embarrassing errors. A few simple steps and a lot of patience can make proofreading pay off in the book printing long run.
