Audiobooks I Read While I Wasn’t Blogging: Audies Edition

armchair audies audiobooks read

I don’t usually do the “bite-sized book reviews” thing here. But after four months away, it’s probably the most efficient way to catch up! I’m updating my 2017 Book Review Index and reading record with these collected mini-reviews. 

Granted, I didn’t do a TON of reading while I was gone. However, I did read too...

While I Wasn’t Blogging: A Recap #dontcallitacomeback
2017-08-01 13:00 UTC by Florinda

while i wasnt blogging #dontcallitacomeback

Four months is a long time for a blogger not to blog. In my case, it was absolutely one of those “life got in the way” intervals in a blogger’s life.

True confession: Sometimes it felt liberating just to do things without mentally narrating or critiquing them in preparation for a blog post. 

That said, here’s a brief...

Currently: And Four Months Later… #dontcallitacomeback

#dontcallitacomeback four months later

Hey there! Remember me? I blogged here for ten years.

Back in March, I put up a tenth-anniversary post. And then I did a disappearing act. I suggested something like that might happen when I took on a new role at work almost six months ago, but I honestly didn’t think it would be to this extent!

As of last week, that new role is no longer...

10 years of The 3 Rs Blog

THE 3 R’s BLOG turned ten years old on March 16th!

I missed posting that day, but I couldn’t let that milestone go by with no comment whatsoever.


When I started this thing, all I intended to do was set up a place to record my thoughts about the books I read. By early 2007, more and more websites were incorporating, or morphing into, blogs....

I had hoped to get Readings for the Resistance, February 2017 (Part 2) up last week, but job transitioning took precedence. (On that note, today is officially my first day as Chief Financial Officer at Aviva Family and Childen’s Services.) The delay just gave me more time to collect links!
