Welcome to kay's reading life!

Welcome to my new blog.  I am Kay and I'm excited about reconnecting with the blogging world and renewing the friendships that have been so neglected in the last few years.  Once upon a time, I had a blog by the name of My Random Acts of Reading.  I enjoyed it, loved talking about my books and reading, met and connected with other bloggers, and then life happened and things became complicated.  For a short while, I continued that blog under a new name, Purple Sage and Scorpions.  After a bit, I decided that blogging had become an activity that was not fun for me.  So, I closed my blog and actually deleted it.

Life continued to happen and parts of it have been good and parts have been bad.  There have been joys and sorrows.  Through it all, books have been my solace and my escape.  And I've missed sharing my book thoughts and feelings.  I've missed reading blogs and nodding my head in agreement or adding to my wish list when a great sounding book was reviewed.

So, I'm here to try this whole book loving and sharing thing again.  And it feels right.  I'll be coming around to your blogs and saying, "Hey, remember me?".  Inviting you to visit me here in Central Texas at "kay's reading life".  The door is open and you are most welcome.  And thanks so much for being out there.  It's a lovely thing to know that there are people somewhat like me in the world - you know, the crazy, real readers.

  4. Yay, hooray, hooroo!! I am happy beyond words. I know we email, but I have so missed hearing about your reading!! Books are indeed a solace and a joy. They are a great relief in times of high emotion. And I find blogging to be the same sort of solace, joy, and relief. Welcome back! And I love the name. It is perfect.

  10. Welcome back to blogging! I've taken breaks off and on over the past two years when life has gotten too busy to keep up with blogging, so I completely understand. I always miss it and come back to it though.

  17. Kay, you're back, and I'm so happy!!! So very very happy. Welcome back, and I hope you take your time and blog only when you want to. That's the secret, I think, to being able to blog for a long time. At least that's what I'm trying now! I want it to be fun :-)
