And....I'm Back!

A new semester of college, a new schedule and new books. Great combo, right? Well, I've been off for nearly a month, but I'm back on the blogging circuit: posting book reviews, visiting other blogs and commenting with a renewed vigour. I made a couple of blogging goals for this semester.

1. I realised that though I read a lot, lately I haven't been finishing a lot of the books I have started, and since I review only those books I have completed, my reviews are generally fewer than I would have liked. So now, I have made a commitment to finish every book I start, no matter how boring.

2. I am going to increase the frequency of my commenting. I am usually a lurker, and it's about time I was more forthcoming. I do wish to get across to a lot of people, and to do that, I have to get to know a lot of people, so comments are the first step.

3. I am going to complete my Guardian reading challenge (I had almost forgotten about it!) within this semester. I will try to sign up for a couple of challenges that suit my TBR pile, and I pray I can finish them.

4. I also want to sign up for the Sunday Salon. I have been reading a lot of Sunday Salon posts all around the book blogging world, and I really want to be part of the community. I will be a Sunday Saloner come August, and I will probably be posting a lot of random thoughts about books, reading, and maybe a few memes.

5. I noticed that many people review ARCs. I think it's a really great way to get to read new authors, and I would like to receive some ARCs as well. As far as I can gather, most ARC programmes are U.S. centric, and I'm not sure how I, sitting in India, will manage to gather a few copies, so that's why this is at the bottom of my list.

I have a stock of reviews to catch up on, and a whole lot of books waiting to be read. It's good to be back blogging, and it's great to be reading.

    Welcome back! I agree, comments are the best way of getting to know fellow book lovers. I always have to push myself a little bit to start commenting, as my natural tendency is to hide in the corner, but it's so worth the effort.
