..although I’ve never really went away.
Although I have not posted any book notes, I have been continually reading.
Late in January this year I developed a severe case of shingles and I am just now getting caught up with my many other activities such as posting to Jimaruni.
But that is not the whole story — George R.R. Martin is the main reason , providing 1100+ pages for Book 5 of A Song of Ice and Fire. Finally, I am caught up in the series, and although I look forward to the next installment, hopefully it will not arrive this year so that maybe I can add about a hundred Victorian novels to the list in lieu of the ever-bloated saga.
