So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

Now that Isthmus has elected to focus its book coverage on local authors only, my blog posts have no home other than this shabby one. And I’m ready for a break. I’m burned out on blogging and have been for a while. I will leave this website up and hope that some readers will still find the several hundred book-related posts useful. The search box in the sidebar should help you find specific titles and authors, and of course the tags are useful too. I’ll keep my book list going over at Goodreads where I might break out into song occasionally, if properly motivated. See you there, maybe.

I have enjoyed your reading your blog and will miss it. But fully understand how you might tire of blogging over an extended period. Keep reading and enjoying though, that is what it is all about

I will become a GdReads friend! I still blog but rarely do the long think pieces and book reviews of the early days. I at least post worthwhile reads on GR and sometimes reviews.

I've enjoyed your blog so much and will certainly miss reading your notes and reviews. Perhaps someday you'll catch your breath and decide to come back--in the meantime, I'll continue to peruse the site and keep my fingers crossed! Thanks for the good times.

I've enjoyed your blog and book recommendations for years, thank you! I'm sorry to hear this is the end. Do let me know if you change your mind after a break. I've been mostly offline for a month, dealing with family stuff, and feel recharged.

I believe 'A Glass Womb'
would be an awwwsome title.
Nevertheless...

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes? Then, fly-away with us…

Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no
zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An extraordinarily, anti-establishment victory
with a sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

Oh, that's so sad. I really liked your blog and the way you blogged in general. I use the materials for my essays and academic papers. They've become useful to me. Thanks a lot! I hope you found time to relax and have a lot of rest.
Regards,
John Letis
