Taking the Week Off

Ded: I am that

No, I'm not going to secretly fly to New York to hang out with all the book bloggers who are going to be there for Book Expo America next week. But I'll take advantage of the fact that so much of the blogging world is going to be busy to give myself a week off. I've been really exhausted and also a little unmotivated, so I think it's going to do me good. Maybe not blogging for a week will give me the chance to catch up on laundry or e-mail (yes, things have been that bad lately).

I regret that I'm missing Armchair BEA, which promises to be fun, but then again I only signed up to comment and I might be able to do that still. We'll see. I'll be back for sure at the end of the month with my review for the Golden Age of Detective Fiction Classics Circuit Tour. Have a great week, everyone!

  2. Have a great time off :O)
    In a couple of days I'll be taking a break too as I'm finishing my Children's Literature course (writing the last essay). Can't wait as I feel seriously dead. By the way, the cat picture is priceless!

  3. I've actually asked myself the question "why post anything next week?". Nobody is going to be around to read it anyway! So this is probably the perfect time to take a rest. I will miss you!

  4. Very good idea! (although I disagree with Sandy - we're not nobodies!) :--)

  5. Thanks, all! I think that even though it feels like *everyone* is going to BEA because there's so much talk about it, there are definitely more of us who can't go than there are of "them" :P So don't worry, Sandy, there WILL be people around to read your posts! Still, I suspect that the blogging world will be calmer than usual, so this is a good time to take a break with no fear of being crushed under the weight of my GR when I come back :P

  8. Oh, how we wish you were secretly going to fly to New York to join us! Enjoy your time away from the blog!

  9. Everyone needs a break now and then! I'm not going either, so I'll be around to read whatever few posts come up... and welcome you back!

  10. See now a part of me is hoping you do secretly fly to New York, like a big surprise gift to me. It may be perhaps a bit narcissistic to think you would make yourself my present, but hey... Enjoy your break even if it means doing laundry (I really hate doing laundry for some reason).

  11. Have a great week off! It is completely refreshing to step away from the keyboard for an extended period of time.

  12. Enjoy your break! Have fun! Savor the smell of freshly laundered clothes :P

    Gee, I'm so out of the loop I didn't even know there's such a thing as a BEA and an Armchair BEA at that!

  13. I don't blame you, I am off on holiday myself on friday and boy do I need it. Enjoy yourself

  14. Seems like a good excuse to take time off. I'm going to do the opposite (I hope) -- try to catch up on all those unwritten reviews and then goof after I'm done. At least there shouldn't be a lot of blog-hopping to feel guilty about not doing.

  15. I need to do this - instead of half-heartedly hanging around, just take a week completely off. I hope you enjoy your time away from blogging!

  19. Enjoy your week, my dear friend! Goodness knows you deserve some time off!!! Of course, this won't get you out of my normal pestering via email. ;)

  20. Enjoy your break and see you when you return!

  21. Enjoy your week off Ana and rest up :D And ditto what Debi said ;)

  22. Sounds like a good plan!!! I'm looking forward to a lighter week in my Google Reader with so many at BEA! Enjoy the time off.

  23. When you do make it over to the U.S., I hope I get a chance to meet you. :-) You are definitely one of my favorite book bloggers. I'm glad you're giving yourself permission to take a break!

  24. I am conflicted. I love (and giggled a lot at) the picture. But am sad you are taking a week off. But am happy in that you are doing what is best for you and hopefully will be back to loving it afterwards!

    But mostly, I'm sad to hear that you're not flying over here ;)

    I'll miss meeting you and others who can't make it!

  25. Enjoy your week off! But not so much, that you won't be back. ;-)

  26. Oh I love that picture!! :) We all need to recharge from time to time- enjoy your week but don’t make us miss you too much!

  28. Have a great week, Nymeth. Enjoy!

  29. I think you've chosen a perfect time to take off, as I suspect I will get ZERO comments from anyone this week anyway. If I hadn't unintentially taken a few days off last week and gotten behind, I may have copied you....ENJOY your break.

  30. Enjoy your break! when you come back, stop by and see pics of Copley enjoying NYC. :)

  34. It's always nice to take a break from time to time. I hope you'll have a great time of it. I'm actually wondering, too, how much I'll post on my blog during this week...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hope you have a wonderful break! I looked at the site of Armchair BEA and it does look like an interesting and exciting idea! Thanks for writing about it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Enjoy your week off! We'll still all be here when you get back! :)

  40. Have a good break! When my life gets busy I vanish completely, as evident by my longish absence from the internets while I was trying to move. I hope you have lots of relaxing free time in the upcoming week (or however long your break ends up taking). :)

  41. A break is always good. I've been feeling the same way lately and is a little unmotivated to post. I guess I just need some fresh ideas to liven things up a bit.

    The cat is so cute!
