I've been back at Goodreads for about a week. Reading had become something I had to persuade myself to get theough, rather than something that gave me solace and joy. It was time to return to the familiar.
There is a fair bit of hypocrisy attached to this decision, since all the old irritants remain, but I will still vehemently express my views when the opportunity arises, and focus on books the rest of the time.
If you're on GR, please add me as a friend - over there, I'm Jennifer (Sad Books Say So Much). I may still post my reviews here - I haven't decided.
Sorry, but this is just something I needed to do.
