Decision time: Bookwinked will close

Books books books! Books have always been a part of my life, but yes, there is a big but coming.

But I have decided to retire Bookwinked.

There, I’ve said it.

It is time. Reviewing has been a part of my life for the last ten years. First for other blogs and for the last 4.5 years through Bookwinked. It is a lot of fun and I loved reading so many different books.

At the same time it also takes its toll. Not only to keep up with a blog (and all the promotion and marketing that goes along with it) but also to read so many books. It has become more of a job than a hobby.

It has been fun for a long time, but now it’s time to retire Bookwinked and focus on new things.

No worries, I will finish all the books and interviews and that are still on the agenda and Bookwinked is still available for interviews and promotions, though I won’t be taking any new reviews.

For now Bookwinked will remain active – but maybe a little bit more quiet – until late December. Starting the new year Bookwinked will become inactive and eventually move to a free host.

It feels a little sad to do this, but it’s also a relief to finally make the decision. One thing is for certain, I will miss interacting with everyone!
