An Update...

I've been silent these past few weeks.

In part it is due to an incredibly busy schedule. For some reason every October catches me off-guard: too many activities in too few days. Do you experience the same? 

I wonder if it is because I anticipate the busyness of the holidays in November and December, but I don't expect it to start as early as October...

Anyway, that is only half the excuse.

The other half is because I am waffling (again) on the focus of this blog. I just can't seem to get away from the idea that it is a book blog, even though my life is more varied now than it was in 2009 when I first started The Nook.

I have done a lot of pondering lately - and journaling - and questioning. And ultimately I have decided to branch out.

My Cozy Book Nook will remain a book blog. I still love to read (and write) and I love this community. I hope to post more book reviews in the future - focusing on children's and middle grade literature. I also plan to post some articles on writing - both my own personal endeavors as well as my teaching adventures. This will be my literary hangout.

I have also started a new blog, Revising Life after 50, which will focus on my other interests, namely journaling, leaving a legacy, and navigating this second half of life. I'd love to have you join me there, if you feel so inclined.

So I'm back... again.

I hope to be more consistent in my postings and more visible around the book blogosphere. I have roots here. This is home.


  1. Congrats on your decision. Life is all about growth and change and I look forward to seeing more MG reviews. I've read most of the ones on your page and cherish them (especially, "When You Reach Me"). Good luck!

    1. Thank you so much, sp! I hope to get back into a MG review routine soon :)

  2. It can be hard to transition your blog to a new theme. I'll check out your new one.

    1. Yes it is... at least for me.
      Thank you for your willingness to follow me here and there. I greatly appreciate your loyalty!

  3. I do think there's something about this time of year that pulls people away from their online life (at least it always does for me). Good luck as you start your new blog.

    1. I think I expect life to be hectic through November and December, but October craziness always catches me off-guard :)
