My Confession

I really can't make any excuses. My reasons will sound hollow and insincere. I, Jess, have been a bad blog friend.
Yes, that is right, you heard me; a bad blog friend.
I have been posting and reading the comments left for me, but I have not been reading your blogs. Why is that you ask?
Well, to be honest, I've been buried in a book; technically three books. That's the honest truth. Ever since I started The Wheel of Time series, I have not been myself. My hands shake when I do not get enough reading time; when I am not reading my brain is puzzling out what will happen next; I sneak off to read little bits wherever possible; and so on and so forth. I think I may be addicted-an intervention may be in order. Every waking minute that is not filled with triathlon training, Glacier, going out with my friends here, bonding with Gus and Fiona  or spending time with Mr. K is taken up by those blasted books. Even Mr. K would argue that I am not spending enough time with him. If Glacier could talk, he may say the same. I only started the series a few weeks back and I am already on book three, which says a lot considering book three alone is nearly thirty hours of listening time. The books are just that good; at least if you are a fan of the Fantasy genre.
With the Holidays coming up, things will actually calm down here. Everyone except Mr. K and I are heading home for Christmas. That means, a lot of time for me to read not only my books, but I'll get caught up on your blogs as well.
So, if anyone missed me out there: have no fear, I'll be back...once I've gone to book rehab first.

If I remember correctly, I read the "Wheel of Time" series too! Only bad thing was that I never finished the series, I think it's just too long and I started losing interest in it after a while. I still have the books packed away in a box, not sure what to do with them. I'm not into the fantasy genre anymore like I used to be, now I only read historical fiction, anything from the mid-1700's on back.

Don't listen to them all too fast! The last book hasn't been released yet, and let me tell you, it is torture waiting for it!

Though, I did the same thing when I first started Wheel of Time. I was in Estonia on a student exchange. The books didn't even sound all that interesting to me, I wasn't a fantasy fan for the most part, but a friend on exchange in Finland had the whole series and offered to let me borrow them. And, big selling point, they were in English. Then, I couldn't put them down.

I have probably read each book in that series at least three times, more like 10+ times for the first few books. They are, basically, amazing. As much as I like having you come read my blog, I totally understand if you neglect it to read these books.

Cessna, Aspen, Canyon and Rogue are sad to hear their Auntie Jess hasn't been keeping up with their adventures lol! The books sound great. You'll have to start writing about your reading addiction lol!

Hope you guys didn't get effected too much by the high winds I read about hitting Scotland the other day...
