It's been a rough two weeks -- not due to the holidays or anything but because a company whose name I will not mention has seen fit not to renew my original domain name and my blog went byebye. I've been scrambling. All of my pages connected with this one have been autorenewed, but I lost the original and had to redo everything. Luckily, very luckily as it turns out, I had exported everything into my hard drive, so the only thing not working is the flag counter, but what the heck. It was definitely an eye-opening experience -- I learned more than I ever wanted to know about what goes on when you click your enter button and you're taken to a website. When you go to get a new domain name, it's easy to acquire, but then trying to make it actually work is something else all together if your brain doesn't quite get how everything goes together. So -- I have a new domain (which is now www.readingavidly.com), and I can start posting again tomorrow.
I haven't been idle -- I've finished The Origin of the Brunists, by Robert Coover (not for the faint of heart reading wise), Jane Gardam's Crusoe's Daughter, which I loved, the newest novel by Helene Tursten in her Irene Huss series, and The Race Underground (nonfiction), by Doug Most. And I've finally started The Luminaries -- yay! So there's definitely a lot to catch up on.
I'm just glad to be back.
