I write this post with some regret, and with the hope that you won’t be too disappointed in me.
Unfortunately, I have to pause the crime book club for three months.
To be clear, this is not a closure. I am not closing the doors of the virtual crime book club.
I do, however, need to step away for a short time, for my own well-being.
The second half of winter is a time I’ve often struggled with, and though I have, in the past four years, managed to continue with the meetings, this year there are other factors added to the winter blues that have made this decision necessary.
I’m okay really, but something needed to give and unfortunately, it’s the book club.
I reiterate though, that this is a temporary measure, for three months only. Please don’t leave the group, I will be back.
I know how much you love the group, so I hope this isn’t too much of a blow. I’ll take February, March, and April off, then restart in May with a post here as usual for you to vote on.
I sincerely apologise for this. The group is important to me and I love the meetings, which is why this is only a temporary measure.
Please feel free to use the Facebook page to keep in touch with each other and to discuss books you’re reading.
Wishing you good health and a pleasant three months,
