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.

35. Irish Tales and Sagas by Ulick O'Connor


Title: Irish Tales and Sagas
Author: Ulick O'Connor
Copyright: 1981
Pages: 96
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 4/5 stars
Finished: 4-18-08

Ulick O'Connor's Irish Tales and Sagas is a re-telling of Irish legends and lore. In my eyes, the stories seem to be somewhat simplified, but they are still interesting all the same. Anyone interested in Irish legend and lore would probably enjoy this book.

At the rate you are going you might want to change your 75 book challenge to a 100 book challenge. =)

If you like retellings of Irish Legends and Lore then you should check out Morgan Llywelyn's books. I've only read a few so far but have loved them. I really need more time so that I can read all the books that I own...want...*sighs*

Well, I know once summer gets here that my reading will drop off significantly. There is always so much going on, that I find my reading usually takes a hit in the warmer months.

I just checked over to Amazon, and what a selection of books to choose from for Morgan Llywelyn! Is there anyone over another that you would recommend?

Forgot to add, that this is another reason that I love LT, the reading community as a whole, and people like you that I've discovered over the last couple of months.

I would never have known about Morgan Llywelyn, and so many other great books that I've been introduced to. I love being introduced to a broader range of authors and books that I would never have discovered on my own.


Also, a friend of mine and I were just discussing the other day how loverly it would be to be able to take a year off and do nothing but read. I don't know that I would be able to get through everything that I would want to read in that year, but wouldn't it be wonderful to try?

I was looking at the list of books written by Llwelyn and I find that I've woefully under-read her. So I don't think that I'm capable (right now anyway) of recommending any one book over the others. I will say though that of the few I've read I've enjoyed.

I love LT for the same reasons. The meet up today was great. It was nice to be able to put names to faces and to talk face to face. Time and Abby made it as well...though I didn't get much chance to talk to Abby.
