Here's Your Ticket!

For a while, now, I've been pondering what to do with Elsewhere. Should I discontinue it? Change it up? Try something different? Bring back all things old?

Well, I've decided, now. I've decided that Elsewhere is going to be a book blog... kind of.

You see, I'm not the kind of person who likes being observed like an exhibit on display. Rather, I'd want to be the tour guide, leading people toward interesting things and being the bridge between something foreign and something in the now. Elsewhere is going to be an interactive blog, then. A blog where I talk, and you talk, and then I talk back, and then (if you're up to it), you talk again.

How is that going to work, you ask? Well, I'll tell you--- I'll tell you right now.

I'm inviting you to read with me. One book. Every week. From now until the end of the year.

Well, I lie. Not NOW, now, until the end of the year, but SOON, now, until the end of the year.

How soon?

March, soon.

Because starting March 5th, My Ticket Elsewhere is dedicating itself to one book a week, and I'd love to have you participate in that and help me spread the awesome that is the written word.

This Monday (February 19th, you plonkers), I'm going to announce the books I'll be reading (or re-reading) in March, and you are more than welcome to start early and/or join me! You should note that although I will be reading a book a week, the book that will be focused on is going to be the book I read from the PREVIOUS week, so by Monday, March 5th, the "first book" should already be on your "WOOT! I read this and it was awesome!" shelf.

Keep checking in and exploring the blog the next couple of weeks until then to learn more about the new features of My Ticket Elsewhere. And be sure to let me know how excited you are about this. Because I'm excited! Aren't you?

Viva los libros,

P.S. EDITED TO SAY: The 19th was a Sunday, not a Monday. My apologies! See, I knew this, subconsciously (posted the calendar yesterday, see?!), but it didn't translate literally. My bad, party people. Thank you, Brittney, for noting the error!
