All Good Things…

…come to an end. 

I think that I’ve been living in denial for some time when it comes to this blog.  I kept trying to find a way to renew my interest in book blogging but never managed to rekindle the passion I once had.  My interests have simply changed and I’m no longer interested in running a blog anymore.  Read What I Like will not be going away, my reviews will remain on this site as long as WordPress keeps it around but I will not be adding fresh contest any longer.  This break I took in December has shown me that I simply don’t want to actively post book reviews any longer.  Net Galley calls us professional readers a pretty accurate description because while book blogging is a lot of fun it is also a lot of work.  At this point in my life, I would like to return to being a casual reader writing reviews only when the mood strikes me.

I have felt for some time that my reviews are not fresh, that I tend to repeat the same statements in each review.  I also feel like I am repeating myself each Top Ten Tuesday and selecting the same books over and over.  It’s time to move on.  I want to thank you for supporting my blog and coming back to read what I thought about the books I read.  Your comments have delighted me over the years.

Since I am not going to be deleting Read What I Like if my interests drift back I may start posting again, but for now any reviews I do post for the books I read will be found on Goodreads moving forward.  After all, I’m not giving up reading simply not blogging any longer.  I will be deleting my Facebook page and blog Instagram.

I bid you all adieu and wish you the best!
