After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

A Year of Reading Dangerously

This looks like it would be a fun challenge, and if it weren't already 3 books into the challenge, I might have considered it. However, I think that I'm going to just watch, and see if I can add the challenge books into my reading without the pressure of needing to participate.

I think I've been spreading myself a little thin with all the book challenges and discussions that I've joined up with over the last couple of months: LT 75 Book Challenge 08, LT Early Reviewer, B&N First Look, Walden Media BookShare, the Sunday Salon, among others. That may be why I can't decide on what book to read for my own enjoyment!

I see that you've signed up for the Sunday Salon. Let me send you an early welcome. =)

I sometimes have trouble settling on a book to read as well...I think that's part of how I end up reading multiple books at once.

Thanks! I actually discovered it through your blog, and it looked interesting, so I thought I'd give it a try.

I'm going to try starting The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes. I've been looking forward to it's release since it was offered on LT as an ER, and I've heard some good things about it since then, so I'm hoping that this is the one!
