Today is my LJ blog's 14th birthday.

Wow. Time really does fly.

In that time I've posted 10,354 journal entries, posted 34,937 comments and received 62,511 comments.

Crikey. If you add in the blog posts & stuff on espressococo, I must be north of 11 thousand blog posts.

Thanks for sticking around.

I decided that I needed to take control of my TBR pile the other day, both physical and virtual, so spent a merry hour exporting a list of books on my Kindle then wandering around the house taking photos of piles of books.

Currently I've got 66 review copies of books - 42 hard copy/ARCs, 21 on my NetGalley shelf, and 3 other ebooks sent by lovely publishers (*waves at Karen from Orenda*)

On top of that,  I've got 96 of my own purchased books: 25 in hard copy and 71 on kindle. Crikey. I knew I was a sucker for the 99p kindle sales but that's just silly.

So, job for February: Finish the currently reading list. Crack into the NetGalley TBR pile.

Some of the review copies were agreed with publishers, but increasingly they just turn up. It's a lovely problem to have, I must say, but does feel overwhelming at times.

Right. Best get reading!

cross-posting to LJ from wordpress appears to be borked.

hope you're all well.

roobarb, do you still have my migrating moleskine?

Really need to sort out the migrating moleskine project, if anyone still remembers it.

Who's still interested?

evening all

Long time no LJ. I trust you're all well?

Had a couple of notifications of people who've removed me from their friendslist here. I know I don't post directly here often, but hope I haven't upset anyone with what I have posted.

posted here, but not there. I'm not sure why.

Anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year? I genuinely can't decide. I 'won' in 2011, and the printed copy is sat in a folder on my desk, glaring at me. It's the last piece of fiction I've written. I think NaNo broke my mojo.

Or I've just been busy/lazy/other.

Do I do NaNo2013 and rediscover my writing? Or not.

Time, as usual, will tell.

Anyway, I hope you're all well. I notice one or two of you have wandered off, or removed me from your list of journals you follow. Fair enough, I've been gone a while.

Back from holiday in Cornwall, slightly knackered and beardy, but had a great time. Did you miss me?

roobarb, did you get the Moleskine?

Been a bit lax with the Moleskine Project. Anyone still interested in getting it?

I guess I should sort out the Migrating Moleskine at some point. I'm getting the feeling that the project has rather lost steam...

Mmm, cake.

2B, or not 2B... the books I've read so far this year (some corkers in there), and last, but not least, someone writing the alphabet out. Trust me. It's remarkably soothing.
