Apology to Publishers and Authors

Leave a comment

I am sorry that I have not been able to get a new book review up. I was hoping to get The Longevity Thesis finished over the weekend but I’ve come to the realization that I will not be getting any reading done until the middle/end of next week. I want to extend my apologies to anyone waiting on my reviews but please let me explain.
Last weekend I went to a live production of the opera Madama Butterfly for my opera course at UC Santa Cruz. I had intended to get The Longevity Thesis done that weekend, but it proved futile as time became a factor on Sunday. This week happens to be the beginning of finals. This means I have four essays to write that are due next week on different dates. I’m planning to get most of them done over the weekend, but I doubt that will happen.
However, I am going to catch up on an whole lot of reading over the break, which will extend from next week until the 3rd of January. This means I intend to not only read everything on my reading list, but I am also planning to do a lot of extra reading.
Please understand I did not do this on purpose, nor did I expect it. I was fine reading books at a decent pace (about one every two weeks during school), but these last weeks have been murder on my time.
However, I will get to everything on my reading list, hopefully, over the two weeks of vacation. I think I can manage close to a book a day, okay, maybe a book every three days at least. This will not be an issue, hopefully, for next quarter because I will be better prepared on how to manage my time for a full quarter. I should be able to resume my two week schedule easily then.

Thanks for your patience.
