I felt compelled to add the parenthetical statement to the title of this post because this site was down for days and not one person mentioned it to me.  This, I will confess makes me both sad and frustrated. Sad for rather obvious ego depreciating reasons. Frustrated because I seem to lack the focus and discipline to make this site what it once was: a half-decent book blog.

It has gotten so bad, Jeff posts more regularly than I do! (I kid, I kid)

So … sorry if you tried to visit and the site was down.  And consider this yet another promise to do better and try harder, etc. etc.

And as always, thanks for visiting.
