Eeek! My apologies!
I worked on my categories tonight, changing and merging things so that there are just a few left to facilitate browsing. But I just discovered that editing a post’s categories makes it show up as just-published in Google Reader (I’m not sure if other feed readers do that, since I only use GR). I’m so embarrassed and sorry about that: please just mark them all read. I’m blushing and cringing at the idea of y’all actually reading some of my early posts. On the plus side, my categories are now much tidier. ;) (If you’re curious, you can see the new, streamlined ones plus explanations on my directories page.) And the kitten photo is just to distract you from the inconvenience. I’m crossing my fingers it’ll work: book bloggers seem to be cat people in general!
