It's hard to believe I've been blogging for five years.
A lot has changed along the way. I started out with a lot of political content, but eventually I got sick of it all. Then the blog developed into a journal of Biking Illinois filled with entries about signing events, interviews, reviews, etc. For a while, I got tired of blogging altogether and lost 90% of my already limited readership with sporadic posting (my subject matter was always too scattershot to attract a large audience anyway). This year I resurrected the blog mainly to stick to my New Years resolution to finish more books than I acquire. I figured making it public would help me keep it, and so far I've been successful.
In honor of the blog's evolution, today I'll post a political entry for old time's sake as well as the latest book review.
