It’s been a while…

I feel like the white rabbit 🐰

It’s been just a little over three months since I last posted here. Before I had never let more than a month go by. I had planned on some time off over the holidays. Probably January off with nothing, but then January turns into February and that turns into March. So here we are.

I’ve slowly been getting my reading groove back and am currently working my way through When Women Ruled the World: Six Queens of Egypt by Kara Cooney. So far it has been an interesting and good read. Also appropriate for women’s history month.

There have definitely been some starts and stops, with some duds in between the gems that I have found, but there have been some good things this year so far. One thing that I think has helped me with some of my reading issues (most of which seem to be starting something and losing interest in it) has been my discovery of Kindle Vella. It’s stories in chapters at a time. The anticipation for some of the stories I have gotten attached to is fun and has kept me going back each week for their updates. This is also similar to how things were published historically. For example, North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell was originally published as a serial by Charles Dickens in his magazine Household Words.

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.
