Virtual Holiday (Better Known as Blog Hiatus)

Hi my lovelies!

No, that's NOT me

After a not particularly hot beginning, summer is officially here. And I'm not going on holiday :(. However, I decided I could afford a virtual vacation at least. Now, most of you are probably younger (much younger...) and haler (much haler...) than yours truly. Anyway, to me, summer is a beast. The more I grow old, the more the heat fatigues me. Add job and housekeeping to the mix, and I'm knocked to the ground. And my mind screams for mercy too. It's not easy to form coherent sentences - and in an acquired language at that. So, I decided to take the month of July out (I don't know about August yet, but I wouldn't want to be MIA for too long). I'll still visit blogs and comment on them, and of course I'll respond to emails or comments on my own blog if there are any, and I'll be haunting Goodreads as usual ;P - only I won't post, unless something massive (like winning a giveaway prize or being offered the book of my dreams to review - yeah, right) comes along. Also, I plan on using part of my free time to help a friend with a project of hers - I promised to months ago, but so far I've done very little, and I feel guilty.

So, basically, here's where I wish you all a spectacular summer and say farewell till August (hopefully)...Stay tuned! :)

  1. There's several bloggers doing summer breaks right now :) We're heading out on vacation in a few days and I had started pre-scheduling posts, but then I was like pffft-it's vacation! So I'll also be taking some time off from blogging later this month :)

    Have fun and enjoy your break!

  4. I think taking the month (or more!) off is a great idea! I am not a summer girl, I much prefer Fall and Winter, and I only survive summer because of air conditioning and the fact that my home state usually has some kind of breeze going. Mostly I just avoid the outdoors like I'm a vampire and the sun just might kill me. Hope the temperatures are kind to you, the sun gentle, and the break restful!

    1. LOL, a vampire, but not of the Sita kind! ;) Well, anyway, indoors is great...as long as one has lots of books to spend one's time with - so I guess you're all right hehe.

      And BTW - I didn't know you could get so lyrical :).

      I must admit this has been a windy and not excessively hot summer so far. I hope it stays this way...
