Sunday Salon: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

And no, I’m not talking about the holidays…I’m talking about the end of the fall semester!

*waves to everyone*

As a teacher, I dread midterms because that’s the point when I always get buried under an avalanche of papers to grade, and it doesn’t end until the semester is over. This semester was extra extra fun because I started working on my MLIS degree. So on top of all that grading, I also had three 15-20 page papers and a database due during the last two weeks of school. I’ve been slightly more active on this blog’s Facebook page, but overall? I’ll admit my poor blog suffered.

Now that I’m done with everything — and have straight As…yay! — you can expect this blog to return to a more regular posting schedule. I have about ten billion books I need to write about. And, as is tradition, I’m already in the process of making painful decisions as to which books will make my Best of 2012 lists. IT’S SO HARD! 2012 has been such a great year for fiction in particular.

Anyway. I leave you with this Q&A from Junot’s Facing Race keynote address last month. Because Junot.
