Hello, and welcome to Nina’s scribbles, my
brand new, erm… brand newly refurbished blog home. It’s got new clothes, a new hairdo… everything. It was a complete, very thorough makeover. How do you think it’s looking?
It’s still very much work-in-progress, of course, as no doubt you, my patient reader, have already been able to establish. Some of the bones and braces of the thing are still missing, though in the process of being forged. But please don’t despair: it’ll soon be whole and navigable — or as nearly as possible. And over time, too, all those posts that it used to house will be returned here, with feature images tailored to fit.
In the meantime, my infamous TBR (to-be-read) pile is slowly progressing towards a deeply satisfying, though immeasurably smaller, HBR (as in, has been read) pile, which might be my second favourite state for books, at least as far as this blog is concerned (the top being, of course, HBRR, i.e., has been read and reviewed).
However, and as far as the aforementioned reviews go, there are now quite a few very, very overdue — and still very, very, very unwritten (as of the latest count…? No, I won’t say. I’m far too embarrassed. Suffice it to say that I seem to read a lot faster than I write).
So, review writing is the task I shall try to devote myself to presently, while reformatting all posts and adjusting the few missing nuts and bolts (and bones and braces and cartilage and ligaments and et cetera) of this thing… until it’s perfect, and running quite perfectly smooth… if such thing will ever be possible.
So — go explore, since you’re here. Make yourself at home. Not that the missing widgets will let you go completely wild on its contents, but still. There’s already a fair bit to look at and, hopefully, plenty more to come as the days go by.
I do sincerely hope you enjoy my reviews, my book recommendations, my features and interviews, and all the magpie-ed and magpie-ish and other bits and bobs I’ll no doubt keep throwing in. And, why not, that you also enjoy my “other” writing. I trust you will let me know if you don’t, and set me straight once and for all.
Thanks for stopping by, and for bearing with me for so long.
