ASif! inbox curse

It's *not* that I'm complaining, really I'm not. I love my reviewers and I love that they are working so hard and submitting new material. A review site can't work unless it's constantly being updated.

But it's like they have a camera in here on me. I've been working all week trying to reduce my inbox by publishing submitted reviews and pretty much without fail, they'e matched me review for review. And usually within 30mins of me publishing one on the site, one of them submits another review. And its not just a few of em, it's across the team. They're all in on it! And so after working like a dog in January and posting 25 reviews, I have at least that many still in my inbox and I've been darn well treading water!!

At least I have the fabulous benpayne keeping track of it all for me. But he has clearly been organising things behind me back cause everytime I go somewhere or see someone, they shove books in my hands and mumble something about "amnesty".

On the other hand, its been great to be able to share the burden (of spreadsheets in disarray etc) and to have to stocktake the books waiting in my room for assignment. It forced me to make inroads into tidying and sorting my study which has been worthwhile. Also being able to share a task always makes it more tacklable. And having to say stuff aloud to someone else (like how many reviews I had myself down for) always forces in the wind of sanity.

And finally, I got another bookshelf, a kind gift from a friend, today. So .. I may not have to cull my collection down quite so desperately.
