Closing This Blog

Image result for closing shop 

The time has come for this blog to end. Since I have been retired for about a year and a half, I don't feel the same need to keep current with YA and Middle Grade literature.

I began this blog on Dec. 30, 2009. Over the nine years, I posted 2727 times. I posted 1143 book reviews. 

I will still occasionally be reviewing YA and Middle Grade books on my Inside of a Dog blog. I would love it if you would continue to follow me there. 

I won't be removing this blog. All my archived reviews will still be available. 

Thanks for all your support. 


  1. I will look for you at Inside then. I hope you are enjoying your retirement as much as I am.

  2. Aaah. I am sad, but I understand completely. I'm a
    So jealous- I still don't even have 350 followers, and you have over 1,000! Enjoy life as you find new and exciting things to do!

  3. Onward and upward! I will miss your reviews!

  4. Glad Inside of the Dog is staying open. :-)

  5. I've been doing some consolidating too. Sometimes it gets to be too much. I'll enjoy following you on our other blog.


I love getting comments. Let me know what you think.
