Wow it has been over a month since I last posted here!  This is due to several things: firstly, September saw me start back at school and, obviously this took over my life.  I am now settled into sixth form and my a-level courses, but at the beginning the workload and stress really took it out of me and I didn’t have time to do anything except watch the occasional minute of TV in the evenings.  Secondly, I haven’t posted since then because I haven’t read anything!  I had nothing book-related to say really 😦

This is not completely true – I have been reading, I just haven’t finished anything.  I have been reading lots of science magazines to try and get a good overall knowledge (I will be applying to university this time next year and I cannot decide between Chemistry and Maths) so that’s taken up most of my reading time.  Recently I picked up The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest again and I am slowly making some progress in that.  Also, I am reading Fermat’s Last Theorem by Simon Singh which is a great read, even if you are not particularly mathematically inclined.  I guess I have to mention that I’ve been reading The Highway Code (snore) too because I have started my driving lessons.

I have been keeping up (mostly) with what you’ve all been up to, even if I haven’t commented or shown much interaction, and I was surprised when Jillian came to the conclusion that she wasn’t happy at her blog and moved on.  I just want to say thank you to Jillian for all the inspiration she gave out and wish her luck in whatever she does next.  She was the main reason I took the big step of setting up my own book blog!

Hopefully I will be returning to my blog soon as I will have a bit more reading time at the end of October and I feel quite refreshed after my break.  The lists and spreadsheets etc are calling to me!

Oh, by the way, Middlemarch really didn’t last long – I tried but just couldn’t get into it and then school started a few days later so that has been shelved for the time being…I hope to come back to it sometime when I have enough time to give it the dedication it requires.

See you soon and thanks for always being around even when I’m not!

Adam 🙂
