So I was hoping to spend this week before leaving for Oxford relaxing and reading as many books as possible before I leave. Of course, real life got in the way! It turns out my reading load for my Oxford classes is pretty heavy – I just got the syllabi yesterday. They are actual Oxford classes taught in just three weeks, which means they will be a lot of work in a very short amount of time. As a result, I’ve bought some of the books I need to read for class and am planning on trying to read them before I leave (next Tuesday).
So, what does this mean in terms of blogging? I am planning on finishing the review books that I am currently reading, but I don’t think I’ll be starting any new ones. I will post reviews for all the books I have read, but if you are an author/publicist and I haven’t read your book yet, I probably won’t until I get back in August.
In terms of blog reading, I’m not going to be reading/commenting on other blogs until I get back. If I have time, I will continue to read and comment for the next week, as well as while I’m there. However, that isn’t likely – I’ve been told that I won’t have regular internet access while I’m at Oxford. I’m hoping that isn’t true, but if it is, I think I’m going to take advantage of being disconnected from the world!
