2016 reading year finally under way

2015 proved to be extremely busy, it leaned so heavily on the busy side that it stretched thin my energy, motivation and inspiration. Sadly, 2016 wasn’t up for a good start either. Actually, if I had any quarrels with the past year I didn’t anticipate the beginning of the new one. Still, it also brought revitalization, dealing with some difficult situations I regained the great pleasure of sitting down and settle on a reading, the desire of talking about all the good books and the authors who write them. Not that I lost this passion, but I discovered that for the past several months it dwindled. So, although the first month of this new year didn’t bring many reasons for optimism I find myself ready to talk again about the great world of speculative fiction. I don’t have any specific goals in mind, for the time being I just wish to set the wheels in motion again and detect where this path leads me. I hope you had an excellent start of the year though and will see each other around here as much as possible.

Dear Mihai,

I'm sorry to read that your start into the reading year 2016 has been such a disappointment for you.

My start has been the contrary. Despite work and other stuff I found time to read ten books and to write two revies.

Fingers crossed that you will find time for reading soon.

I think that's the right approach - engage when you can, on what you want, with no goals or expectations that you have to feel bad about missing.

Good to have you back. :)

Michael, actually it is more on the personal level, but reading helped a bit. But I guess that's life and I am sure I'll manage it in the end.

Bob, thank you very much. It is good to be back. I believe that for me goals would become a burden at this point so I'll move along and hope for the best. Although I did rediscover the pleasure of talking about books.
