Welcome to Read Irresponsibly


If you’ve come across this blog already, likely you have been following me on Twitter or on Rat’s Reading. For 15 months I’ve been planning on moving my book blog to a new site. But life and indecision have delayed me. Yesterday, I decided to just launch the thing and get writing.

There are a number of features I will add over the months to the site. My intention is that it will be something more than Rat’s Reading was. When I figure out how I want to implement these features, they’ll come. But for now, this will be a fairly bare bones book blog. For the moment, no information about how to obtain the books I read, no links to other blogged reviews, no indexes, nothing. Just me writing for a while.

Things I want to do eventually: podcasts, link roundups, guest posts, some group discussions, proper indexes of reviews by publisher or author, and more.

I will continue to be a cranky reviewer and to keep the blog free of bandwagon joining rah-rah-ism.

A few words on the name. I cribbed Read Irresponsibly from this Unshelved comic strip. I read irresponsibly and I encourage others to do so. They even made a Read Irresponsibly t-shirt. Wonderful strip. Buy their books.

So welcome! And read irresponsibly.
