Well ladies and gents, Page Pulp is officially back in business!
Last year I took a break from writing to (among other things) get married. It was a wonderful day that turned out exactly as I had hoped, but don’t let anyone tell you that crafting all the decorations yourself is going to be a quick and easy process (I still have the hot glue gun scars to prove it). Anywho, now that things have settled down, I figured that it was about time to get back to get back to my keyboard.
Although I didn’t update the site last year, one thing I definitely did do was read. For my own curiosity, I also made a point of keeping a book log, writing down the book titles I finished each month in a journal. In the past I’ve had trouble remembering when I’ve read certain books or (if the book is not particularly good) remembering if I’ve read them at all. There’s something nice about being able to tie a book to a particular time in your life, I think–being able to look back and say “Oh that’s right, I read that book when I was on the trolley in San Francisco” or something like that. The log helped me keep track of everything, as well as giving me a total number of books read (56) that I must now obsessively try to top next year. (What can I say, I have issues.)
My book log also gave me a nice idea for an ongoing feature, a by-the-month look at all of the books that I read last year. Some books may be reviewed a bit more in depth than others, but all will get at least a few lines. Hopefully that will help to make up for last year’s lack of activity. Make sure to check back here next week for the first round of reviews!
This year, it is my goal to give Page Pulp more attention–a big thanks to all of my readers for sticking with me.
