Vacation time

It's been very quiet on my little corner of the web for the past few months.  I haven't done much reading at all, and I don't really know why.  I have books that interest me, I just get home and don't want to read anything.

Additionally, I am doing some travel over the next few weeks - I'm spending Memorial Day weekend in the Smoky Mountains (I'm leaving today!), and then in early June, I'm off to Eastern Europe for two weeks.  I hope I'll have a lot of time to read on those trips, but who knows?  Clearly, time isn't my issue, motivation is.

In any case, it seemed like a good time to take a little big of a blogging break.  I have never officially taken one before, so I am actually more nervous than I can say that I will lose the habit and find it very difficult to come back.  But it's hard to blog about books when you haven't read any books, and I am pretty adamant about not sharing personal details of my life on the interwebs, so there isn't a lot I can do about it at this time.

I think I mentioned this last year, when I went to Japan on vacation, but just in case anyone is interested, I do enjoy taking photos on my trips.  I am @aartichapati on Instagram if you would like to see photos of (hopefully) beautifully foggy and atmospheric Smoky Mountains or sunset shots of Budapest, Vienna, Prague and Berlin over the next several weeks.

I anticipate being back in July.  I will see you then :-)


  1. You're going to be in the Smokies? That's not so far from me! I hope you love it. I sure do.

    So jealous you're going to Europe. I can't wait to see pictures. Have fun and be safe!

  2. Enjoy your travels... hope to see you back here before too long.
    I just followed you in instagram :)

  3. Ohh have fun on your trip :)

  4. Have a safe trip! I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.

  5. Enjoy both of your trips and your break! I hope to see you back here soon, but believe me, I perfectly understand taking a break from blogging and from reading.

  6. Have a good blogging break, madam! And enjoy your holiday weekend -- I alas do not have tomorrow off and am totally mopey about it because I am SO in the mood to do nothing except lie around and watch TV and cross-stitch.

  7. Have a WONDERFUL time on your trip, take the time you need, and your reading and blogging mojo will come back in their time. I'm off to Instagram!

  8. Missing you and hope your break is going well and that you're starting to miss blogging just a teensy bit by now! ;)
