No, I have not written three entire book reviews in under 24 hours.

I've been way behind on posting reviews of some of the books I've read, including some I finished reading months ago. This backlog was stressing me out! Some of the reviews were mostly written and just needed to be assembled. In other cases, handwritten notes just needed to be typed up.

It feels good to clear the decks a bit.

I will probably cut down on the number of reviews I'll write for a while... after I get through a few things like At Fear's Altar and Jagannath and Staring Into the Abyss and Hair Side, Flesh Side.

I do love to talk about books and writers, and possibly help in some small way to boost those that deserve it. I also think it's helpful, in a selfish way, for writers to think carefully and critically about other people's writing. What works, what doesn't, and why. It's always seemed to me that writers derive more benefit from giving critiques than receiving them.

Despite my enjoyment of this book review thang, I need to scale back, at least for a while, the self-imposed sense of obligation. I'll still talk about the books I've read, probably more briefly and off-the-cuff.
