Unbelievably, today is the ten year anniversary of We Be Reading. Wow. I certainly never thought I would be blogging for this long. In fact, when I put this placeholder post into the queue a few months ago, I intended it to be my announcement that I was calling it a day and ending the blog. I was feeling demoralized and uninspired and just couldn't see what the point was in continuing besides hosting DWJ March and rocking the RIP Challenge. But then something happened over the last few months and I started enjoying the process of sitting down and writing again. My posts haven't been works of critical brilliance or deep exploration but that was never my goal. It has always been to share both lesser known books and also ones that I truly love. So, with that in mind, I am going to keep blogging for now, allowing myself to pick and choose which reads to post about and to hopefully keep inspiring readers to pick up a story that they may not have found or considered on their own.
I sincerely thank each and every one of you who reads my posts, leaves a comment, and/or picks up a book that I have mentioned. It means the world to me.
