A Short Break

As you’ve probably noticed, my commenting on your blogs has been a bit sporadic and my posts here have also been a little sparse. I’ve been blogging for about 6 years now and have never gone dark, but it’s time for me to take a short break. There’s a lot going on in my life right now and I need a little time to focus on some things. This will be a time of reflection and renewal for me, and I’ll be back soon. I hope to be reinvigorated and purposeful, and that I can once again share the love of reading and the excitement of bookish ideas with all of you. I think it’s only right to mention that I really love you guys. As a community of readers and writers, you are generous, supportive and loving. You’ve made a tremendous difference in my life, which is why I won’t be gone for long. Enjoy the first flirtings of summer and be good to each other. I will see you all very soon.

Enjoy your break - I'll miss your perceptive observations on what you have read but will look forward to hearing from you soon, "reinvigorated and purposeful"!

Enjoy your break!

Darlene said...

Hey my friend. Take it easy and regroup on this break and you'll come back better than ever. You know I'm there for you! Hugs to you!

Hey Heather - You are allowed, but I have missed you!
I hope everything is OK, you are in my prayers!

Audra said...

Heather -- enjoy your time away -- I hope whatever is going on isn't too stressful. If you need anything -- someone to vent to or chat with, please don't hesitate to email. I'll miss you and look forward to your return should you feel like it!

Harvee Lau said...

Have a good break. We all need that sometimes.

nomadreader said...

Take as much time as you need and now however long (or short) you're gone, we'll welcome you back with open arms!

Trisha said...

Enjoy your break!

Suko said...

Enjoy your break! I will be taking a short break as well, next week. :)

Jenners said...

I feel this way from time to time. Do what you need to do and come back when you feel ready. We'll still be here. Real life is more important … blogging should just be a happy fun little hobby that we do when we feel like it. That being said, I'll miss you!

Aarti said...

Big hug, Heather! I think this is a very good idea. See you when you're ready to come back. And, of course, on email before that :-)

Jenny said...

Aw, well hope everything is okay or works out to be. Take some time for yourself and I'll be here when you get back!

Anita said...

Thinking of you, and I really hope you get the time and peace you need. Blogging should be enjoyable #1, and a break can really help from time to time.
Give me a call......lunch or coffee when ever you want. xoxo

Amy said...

*hugs*

Hope your break is all you need it to be.

Ti said...

I totally get the need to take a break. Don't worry about us. We will all be here when you come back and I will check in on you by email every now and then... you know, so I can get my Heather fix. Hugs.

Sandy Nawrot said...

I think it sounds like a splendid idea. I notice that things always slow down to a whisper over the summer anyway. I have almost NO TIME at home anymore and maybe you will inspire me to take one too. Regroup, rejuvenate, and I will look forward to getting you back!

Nymeth said...

Take care of yourself, Heather *hugs* See you soon!

(Diane) Bibliophile By the Sea said...

Take care Heather; we'll be waiting for you.

Jules said...

Take care and hope everything is alright. See you soon.

kay - Infinite Shelf said...

We will miss you of course, and will sure be happy to have you back when you feel ready too. Meanwhile, take great care of you and take all the time you need. Sometimes those breaks are needed. I hope everything is going well for you xoxox

Lisa said...

Take your time and know that we'll be ready to welcome you back when you're ready to come back. Take care, Heather - miss you already!

Jenny said...

*hug* Take all the time you need! I hope you have a good time away, get some R&R, etc. Everyone will miss you while you're away and look forward to your return!

Kaye said...

Hugs to you, dear Heather. Everyone needs a break here and there. I hope this one for you brings you some peace and resolve to whatever is going on lifewise. We'll see you soon.

Amy said...

I hope you're okay and your break is going well. I miss you and completely understand needing a break from blogging and your blog. I hope you have time to read and are simply enjoying some good books.

{{{{Hugs, Heather}}}}

trish said...

I personally think that you find the community to be generous, supportive, and loving because *you* are generous, supportive, and loving. You've long been the epitome of the type of blogger I want to be. Enjoy your break! I think you will find that you'll come back reinvigorated. xoxo

Beth F said...

What everyone else said :) -- take a break, we'll still be here. Rest up, work out what needs to be worked out, read, relax, return!

Vasilly said...

Take care of yourself!

TheBookGirl said...

I understand completely Heather. I have had to step away from my blog for a while now as well. I hope that everything going on for you right now resolves soon. I'm sending good thoughts your way :)

Amanda Nichole said...

I love you so much. You deserve a break more than anyone! Don't worry - be happy. Relax. Take a few deep breaths. Lots of love for you <3

Alison Skap said...

Heather, you're missed but we'll all be here whenever you are ready to come back. Enjoy the lazy days of summer before they slip away.

bermudaonion said...

This went up while I was out of town and I marked all as read when I got back home. It just occurred to me that I haven't heard anything from you in a while. I hope all is well and you're enjoying your break. I hope things turn out great for you.

Nicole said...

Enjoy your break Heather! I hope the summer is going well for you so far. :-)

Bookfool said...

I haven't been getting around much because we're in the process of buying a house but I've missed your comments! So glad you're just taking a well-earned break. Hope it's relaxing and enjoyable for you and that everything turns out well.

Laurie C said...

I missed this post until now, as well, when I just popped over to see if you had posted your thoughts on The Reapers Are the Angels. I will miss you, and hope your break is rejuvenating.

geosi said...

I have really enjoyed your blog and posts. Hope you return with a big bang! Cheers!

Iris on Books said...

I'm late, but I wanted to say that I hope the break does you good. You are missed, but real life is so much more important. Sometimes it is good to take a break from the online world can be very relaxing.

Natalie~Coffee and a Book Chick said...

I thought I commented already, but I only did in my head! Take all the time you need, we will all be here when you return. Everyone needs to take a long break to refresh and rejuvenate. I hope things get better and if you need absolutely anything at all, please let me know.

Athira said...

I'm only just seeing this. Like you, I went on a long break as well, beginning a few days before you posted this. I'm only just (very slowly) bouncing back. I liked the break and I think it's something we should all take often. I hope you come back rejuvenated and refreshed! Take all the time you need!
