An apology :-(

My dear book lovers,
I'm so sorry I haven't been around for this read-a-thon! I feel so bad for not being around to help at all or to join you :-(

I haven't had a vacation in 2 years and originally had planned to take one week off in mid- to late July. Unfortunately, I didn't realize I was a lot more exhausted than a single week can take care of.

On top of that, my laptop is no longer reliable, so I have been working longer hours at my student job to have the money for a new one once the next semester begins (in early Oct). This, of course, hasn't helped me relax in the least, so I have been even more exhausted and haven't been online much - if at all - for the past few weeks :-(

I can't tell you how sorry I am I missed out on this read-a-thon, but I hope you had lots of fun and will be with us again if we do another read-a-thon.

I'm glad that Marleen is so internet and blog savvy that she took over the entire work with no problems that I could see. And another thanks to Wendy from Caribou's Mom for the generous offer!



  1. Tha's ok, things crop up and it sounds like you really needed some time away. Thanks to Marleen for taking over and hopefully you can make the next one :)

  2. Thank you Rhinoa, and I agree.

  3. Oh I am so happy to hear from you Kathrin! I am just glad to hear you are okay - although it sounds like you have needed a long rest. Please take care of yourself - no apologies needed...we all have times in our lives like this and I am just happy to know you are doing okay.
