2010-10-13 No More Book Club

Sigh. I did not like doing this. I have decided to leave the BookClub I’ve been a part of for so long. I took it over from Geetha years ago. The books picked were a challenge to my own reading habits. I like to read Science Fiction, Fantasy, and the occasional non-fiction book, mostly history. But as the months went by, I read less and less books, and the less books I read the more odious it seemed to be reading a book I didn’t want to read in the first place. I bought several books for the book club and ended up not reading them.

I’m still reading a lot – but it’s mostly Old School RPG blogs. I’m subscribed to 287 blogs via Google Reader!

And in the mean time, I still find the occasional recommendation online – intriguing books, interesting subjects, and there’s my Planet Stories subscription to consider.

And so I sent out a mail to the people who’ve been part of the book club for the longest time, and told that I was quitting. Now I’m sad.

Here’s to readers everywhere, whatever the medium, whatever the interest: Enjoy! :)
