I have been mulling this over for a while and, much as part of me hates to do it, I have decided not to accept any more books for review. At least for a while.
I am too moody a reader to do well with deadlines, and if I don't give myself a deadline, I know that some review books will not get read for years. That's not fair to the authors/publishers/publicists who send them to me.
I might change my mind at some point, but right now, I think the best thing for me, and for the books, is if I just don't accept any books for review.
Review books already in my possession or on their way to me (I'm pretty sure there aren't any) will be read and reviewed per my old review policy. Well, I'm a little behind, so I might be a little late, but I am working on my fairly small pile and they will get read and reviewed as soon as I can possibly get to them.
I want blogging to be fun, and it is, but having looming deadlines to get books read and reviewed is starting to make it feel like work.
I will still be reviewing the books I'm reading, whether they're my own books, or from the library, or borrowed from friends and family, so this does not mean that my blog will change.
If I change my mind, I will write another post. Thank you for your understanding.
