An announcement

Hi readers,

You may have noticed that I haven't posted here in a while. For the last few years, I've been feeling a little bit like the pressure to write up a big review for every book I read was sapping some of the pleasure out of reading. But then again, I also feel that writing about what I read helps me remember the books, and I've heard from some of you that you like getting recommendations for what to read. So I'm trying something new. I've started a new account on Instagram. Follow @shelahbooksit for bite-size book reviews. I'll give you my honest feedback on every book I read, in just a sentence or two. This might feel less overwhelming for me, and since it's on Instagram, a format many people use anyway, it may be easier for you, too. If you'd like me to post the reviews to Facebook as well (which I can to do with the click of a button) then let me know and I will set that up as well.

I may decide that I like the longer format of the blog better, and I may decide to use this blog to get back to writing (like I did back in the days when blogging was young and so was I) but for now, follow me on Instagram.
