Long time no see my illustrious, invigorating Bookbaggers!
This is just a quickie to say sorry for being incommunicado since early December and to let you know that I’m still here and Book Polygamist hasn’t joined the Island of Lost Blogs.
I won’t go into why I’ve been absent as it’s a terribly boring combination of a relaxing holiday break, an old zombie-like laptop too frustrating for words, a lack of funds for Internet beyond my smart phone, and as always, a dash of laziness.
Regular blogging won’t really start-up again straight away, as there is normal start of year busyness to contend with at my work, plus I have moved to a different campus so that will take some adjustment, but I thought I would at least let you know my plans for upcoming posts
Coming in February
- I will of course be doing my Awards for last year, but with a bit of a twist! Since I read so many comics/graphic novels in 2013 I thought it only fair that they get their own Top 10, so before the end of Feb expect a Top 10 Books I Read in 2013, a Top 10 Comics I Read in 2013, and some new comic-related awards in my 2013 Book Polygamist Awards
- Since I haven’t stopped reading over the holidays (quite the opposite!) I have a few Notable Quotables which I’ll post in Feb
- Lastly I have made some changes for 2014 that I will tell you about (may include the introduction of a new challenge 😉 ) plus I’ll update you on some of my book-related news, i.e. what I finished and started over my holiday, books I got gifted for Xmas etc.
Coming sometime soon
- I will hopefully do a new Collective Nounitude and an Adventures in Etymology in the near future, time permitting
- I hope to catch up on the Micro Reviews from Planet Procrastination in my spare time, since they’re the only reviews I really do anymore (bad book blogger!) and I enjoy writing some fiction again 🙂
- Maybe I’ll sort out a format for reviews I can be bothered with and start doing them again – even if it’s just a copy and paste job from my Shelfari reviews with a bit of book info 😛
Lastly, before I disappear again I have been indecisive about Book Polygamist’s theme of late. Some of you may have noticed that I changed from the one I’ve had for ages – Matala – to Shine On, a seasonal theme designed for Xmas (how could I resist the owl!) and now I have become interested in another theme (seems I’m a polygamist for things other than books!) Sorbet, and I can’t decide which I like more.
So, I thought I’d put it to a vote, since I haven’t done a poll for a while and you’re the ones looking at it anyway:
The poll will expire in a month so you have all of Feb to vote and whichever one wins will become the theme, at least for now 😛
