How's your summer going? And Litsy...

Just a quick check in to say that I'm still around - still reading books - still reading blogs.  Not commenting, but definitely keeping up with things.  I will say that I did cut back a bit on the number of blogs that I read.  Had to delete some because I just had way, way too many to keep up with.  There's only so much time, right?  And one would like to have some time to actually read - not just read about reading.

Beth Fish Reads had a great interview today with the guys who started Litsy - an app that I've been hearing about for quite some time.  I had considered trying it, but when I cut back on my online presence decided not to join in.  Well, Candace convinced me.  I joined Litsy and you can find me here - @kaysreadinglife.  It's a place to do short little updates, reviews, blurbs and such on books and reading.

I do want to say that I'm planning on being back with posts on this blog by the end of the summer.  I've missed it, but we'll be out of town quite a bit in upcoming weeks and I don't like doing posts from my iPad.  Look for me to be back with some regularity by the latter part of August or early September.

My life is going pretty well.  I did have a bad ear infection a few weeks ago that messed up my inner ear a bunch.  Caused vertigo and that was no fun at all.  I had a really hard time sitting at my computer without feeling like I was tipping over or getting a bit queasy.  It has resolved itself though and for that I am so grateful.  You know, I was a kid with motion sickness and am also an adult with a tendency toward it.  I don't want to spend my life loopy on Dramamine, but I also hate that slightly nauseous feeling.

I'm currently reading Monday, Monday by Elizabeth Crook for a book group meeting in couple of weeks.  It's a reread and I'm enjoying it again.  Lots of local color from my part of the world, which is fun.  The story is good enough, but I'm really in it for the Austin and Texas stuff.  Am listening to The Stranger You Know by Jane Casey - another reread.  Loving this series again, but in audio format.

Take care everyone.  If you are in the US, enjoy the upcoming holiday weekend.  I'll see you in a few weeks!!
