I am still here but have just recently lost my use this is a mix of just being physically drained , I recently had to have ten days of work with fatigue, I think with a busy year in moving house , trips and a bad chest infection plus testing for a genetic condition I just need some time off blogging after seven years I have taken this year slowly , to take a slow build up to blogging for the rest of the year thankfully Lizzie expanded German lit month which means I can hopefully get all the books I read reviewed. I aim to fully be back 2017. I did manage to make my first trip that I got paid for talking to Swedish english literary translators in London . They wrote a blog on the day I spent there , Which I enjoyed and also meet the lovely Susan from Istros books who have three great books from Slovenia which I intend to review before the end of the year, Anyway just a quick hi ,

    I didn’t mean to like this post, as I’m very sorry to hear about all your troubles. Hope you feel better soon!

    Hey Stu, no need to explain or apologize (as I remind myself). My year has been tough for different personal reasons and it has cut into my reading—I find myself very unfocused and distracted. But my book buying has continued, perhaps escalated, adding to my guilt and growing sense that I will never catch up!

    But everyone deserves a break now and then. My best wishes to you!

    Sorry you’ve been going through it recently Stu – sometimes real life just gets in the way of books and blogging. Make sure you get yourself well and post when you can! 🙂

    Nothing wrong with taking a break – everyone knows how hectic life can get. Hopefully you’ll soon be back and fully recharged!

    I think we often underestimate how stressful moving house can be. Take it easy, Stu, rest up and enjoy yourself, and the muse will come back all in good time.

    We all need to take a break every now and again, especially when life gets hectic and stressful. Take care of yourself over the next few weeks – hopefully you’ll feel the benefit fairly soon.

    Hope the mojo comes back soon, Stu – the new year is just around the corner, so perhaps a new start is too 😉

    the most important thing is that you focus on getting your health restored. Blogging can take a back seat for now….. though we will miss you of course.

    I’m with you Stu – my year has been pretty exhausting too. I’ve barely kept up with my own blog let alone read those of others. Rest up and just enjoy reading.
