This is looking like a crazy week. Not only is it steep-learning-curve time at the new job, but I'm looking at a massive freelance project that I've been neglecting a little -- if it doesn't get whipped up and sent out ASAP, heads are likely to roll. So I'm abandoning the little blog momentarily -- I can't quite manage to beat down the guilt that would ensue if I spent the usual amount of time it takes to write up a decent posting.
Hope this isn't too much information -- just wanted to make it clear that I'm not retiring, or resting on my laurels. (By the way, thanks so much to all of you who have sent comments and emails regarding the PW article -- I'm working on getting to them, and I love hearing from you!)
I promise when things calm down I'll be back, with book reviews, fun industry news, and reports from my new bookseller life. Enjoy the week, and happy reading!
