Tomorrow Jan 31 is my birthday I will be turning 65, which really amazes me. Where have the years gone? I have no idea! I find it a bit difficult to get my head around the fact that I’ve now hit retirement age. But I do intend to keep working and to keep exercising for many more years to come. My grandmother worked until age 70, and I’d really feel honoured to walk in her footsteps. Fingers crossed there are no health problems looming to spoil my plans. I don’t expect there to be.
To celebrate my birthday and turning 65, I am today launching my new blog Best Bookish Blog
I’m very excited about this, as I love reading, and also love writing and reading book reviews. But it’s my opinion that book reviews don’t really fit with the main focus of this blog. Over the years, I’ve been happy to include the odd review, but I would really like to do more to showcase my passion of reading. I also enjoy keeping up with bookish events, festivals and bookish news. For these reasons, I feel that creating a bookish blog is a great idea for me at this time. It just feels right.
Best Bookish Blog is not meant as a replacement for this blog. Next Phase in Fitness will definitely continue, and hopefully keep evolving as my life evolves. Best Bookish Blog is an addition, and one that I hope will interest my readers enough, to follow and read my reviews and other bookish posts.
My hope is that Best Bookish Blog will be a place for readers to immerse themselves in book reviews and all things bookish. I will be reading all books that are reviewed, and all reviews will be my own work. I usually read about 100 books per year and plan to cover all genres. There will be less sci-fi and fantasy, as they are not my preferred genres. For the sake of variety and being inclusive though, I do plan to add these to my reading list. Reviews will be of the latest releases as well as those published in the past, both recent and distant.
I would love you to pop in to Best Bookish Blog and have a look around. I particularly would love it if you could leave me a comment. Of course, I will reply to all comments left. If you think you would be interested to read my book reviews please enter your email address in the sidebar on the blog, to receive a notification when a new review is published.
Do you enjoy reading? What is your preferred genre? I love it when you join in the conversation and promise to reply to all comments
