Sunday Salon - Trying to play catch up!

If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, just click the button above.

I'm finding it so hard to catch up with my reading. I didn't think it would be so difficult after just missing a month of reading...although I did read a few before I went into the hospital. With the weather being as cold as it is here in New York, and me not really being able to go out, you'd think I'd get a lot of reading accomplished. Not quite the case though. In any case, I guess, like my recovery, everything takes time.

I decided to put together a review policy for my blog. I'm going to spend time reading others' policies and then put one together for myself. I do intend to limit the amounts of reviews I accept (something I've considered way before I had surgery). There is just not enough time in the day to review, do challenges and read whatever I'm in the mood for. So, I have to formally limit myself - otherwise I'll just accept everything. LOL

How do you all juggle your reading time?

  1. Luckily I don't have to work outside my home, so I have plenty of time between cooking, cleaning etc. to read or whatever I feel like doing!

    I have an award for you HERE

  2. I cut down the amount of books I accept for review this year as well.

    I am blessed to only work very part-time and have young adult kids that affords me more reading time.

  3. I know I don't work, but my days are usually very busy, so I save my reading until after the girls go to bed. I normally turn the PC off by 8.30pm and then spend the rest of the evening reading, that way I don't feel guilty.

  4. I'm not working either right now, and with no children around (just a husband) I have plenty of time to do what I enjoy.

    Glad to see you back posting Yvonne.

  5. I don't accept review requests any more because I have enough of an ARC pile from last year, and I have a major problem of requesting books that I see in advance of release anyway.

    I wrote a review policy as well, and then I added a note (not too much later after composing the post!) at the top.. "Not taking requests" LOL

    I don't know how I MANAGE the review pile.. it doesn't seem I am at all.
    AAUGHHH SO I feel your pain. I just take it one book at a time and try not to stress. I read some during lunch, and then when the hubby is at work on weekends, but that also gets cut into because here I am on the computer (& attempting to keep the kids from destroying the house).
    Good luck with your reading time!

  6. This year I vowed not to take on too many arc either. Not working so far but I really mean to cut back. Honestly, I do.

    Hope you're feeling okay now and that the new year is good to you.

  7. Its bone chilling cold here in Jersey too.
    I think a review policy is a good idea, I need to make one as well.
    I try to juggle my reading time by reading during my lunch break and at night before going to bed. But on the weekends I do tend to read more since I dont have to work.

    Glad to see you posting again!


Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog! I always love reading comments and getting to know my readers!

After some careful consideration, I've decided to become an award-free blog. Although I appreciate and am honored by each and every award I've received, your comments and friendship are enough award for me. Thank you all so much for your thoughtfulness.

Due to way too many spam comments, I disabled the Anonymous User comments. We'll see if this works, otherwise I'll have to go back to word verification.
