I missed you all so much!
Now that I'm back, I can spill the beans on where I've been.
I was driving from New York to Austin, Texas and signing a lease on a new apartment! So, if you're anywhere near the Austin area (I'll be north west of the city) and want to grab a cup of coffee (or ice cream, chocolate, cookies--I'm flexible!) and talk books, please shoot me an email!
I'll be spending the next month and a half packing up the rest of my stuff (erm, mostly more books) and then I'll be road tripping it back to Texas in late April. I have posts scheduled and I'll be around commenting here and on your blogs, though probably not as often as I'd like.
Thank you so, so much for all of your comments and emails while I was away! I really thought I would have better internet access while I was away, but sadly I did not. I have over 5,000 emails waiting in my inbox! I'm slowly but surely making my way through all of them (so if I haven't responded yet, I'm totally not ignoring you! I promise!)
My Google Reader is also extremely scary right now, so I'm taking my tried and true approach to stress and doing the Google Reader equivalent to sticking my fingers in my ears and saying lalalalala I can't hear you! (Which is to say, I'm marking everything as "read.")
So if you have written an unbelievably fantastic post, bit of news, cover reveal, etc. that I absolutely cannot miss out on reading, please feel free to link to it in the comments! (Like, um, I hear J.K. Rowling is writing another book?! See what I miss out on when I go away!?)
Also, the review comparison for The Near Witch will post later this month (I intended to post it while I was road tripping, but I was foiled again by that pesky lack of internet) and I've bumped the review comparison for The Goddess Test to April. I hope that doesn't inconvenience anyone who submitted their review!
I'll try to get together some pictures and gush a little about my very first real live road trip (um, SO different from the books!), but I first need to unpack my bags and tackle those 5,000+ emails...
