I have been pondering the reasons for this shift, and I think I just need to chalk it up to life! Four years ago, I had all but given up on my favorite hobby of cross-stitch as after returning to the work force, I found I did not have the energy or eye strength to continue after a long day at my desk and computer.
But I could read.
And boy did I read.
Now, I love to curl up and knit in the evenings---it feeds the part of my soul that loves to be creating. I read on my lunch breaks sometimes, and when I crawl into bed, so you can imagine why I am not ripping through the books like I used to. Reading still brings me extreme pleasure, and I will continue my love affair with books, but it is shared with my love of yarn! I plan to read whatever I want in 2013 and may join a few short term challenges/events.
I am planning to join Beth's Whats in a Name challenge as that is my all time favorite, and will continue to read Amy Einhorn books as part of a perpetual challenge I joined a while back. But I think that is all the commitment I want to make at this time....
