The other reviewing change is that despite having it listed in a still-active poll, I'm going to go ahead and review Téa Obreht's debut novel, The Tiger's Wife, this weekend, likely later today. It is one of those rare novels that has me thinking about a host of issues and I want to strike while the iron is hot.
As for why I've not been blogging or reviewing much the past week or so, it's because I took on a translation project that is due by midweek next week. It's part of an e-book anthology which will be available in the near future. More details after I've completed the translation, hopefully by Tuesday, if not tomorrow.
