Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
I got frustrated with how slow & buggy Booklikes had been running since the first maintenance downtime and just stayed away for a week. I couldn't even get my dashboard to load so I could read everyone's posts.
Looks like the problems aren't resolved, though, since my dashboard is still loading only one post. :(
