It has been nearly two years since I last posted here and although lots of things have changed in that time (I turned 30, started a new job, and began volunteering at a local library, just to name a few), there is one thing that has not changed: I am still head over heels in love with reading. I am still Bookish Ruth. (And, yes, still a rabid Doctor Who fan, if the image to the left didn't serve as enough of a clue.)
At the start of 2013 I set a goal for myself: Read more books than last year, with a realistic goal of at least 75 books. In 2012, I read 46 books. It's April 17th and I've just started book number 33 for the year.
I've missed blogging over the past two years. I never announced that I was leaving because I knew for certain I would be back. Saying goodbye, even for awhile, felt wrong; too final. So, today, I'm happy to announce the official re-launch of Bookish Ruth.net. I can't wait to catch up with the book blogging world and I'm greatly looking forward to sharing my thoughts here again.
