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.

Find Your Magic: Blog Tour

OK, so I just discovered something very cool. (Thanks Irish!)

J. Scott Savage, who I first heard about through various connections made after receiving an ARC of James Dashner's excellent The Journal of Curious Letters, is promoting his book through a blog tour. Basically, if you email him your blog information after 7pm MST on Friday, April 11, 2008, and are willing to review his new book, Farworld - Water, and host a short author Q&A, he and his publisher, Shadow Mountain, will send you 2 advance copies of Farworld - Water, one for you and one to give away. I think this is a genius way to get word spread on a book, and besides, who doesn't like to interact with authors?

I think this is a very cool and creative way for J. Scott Savage to connect with his readers! Good job!!

You're welcome Tapestry! =)

You also condensed all the info nicely. I really need to work on that. But I guess working in the scientific field - which is restritrive when it comes to writing - makes me rebel a little by using far more words than needed on my blog. =)

That's funny, because I thought I wasn't giving enough information like you did in your post!

Thanks for the mention, Tapestry. And thanks for joining the tour! I'm really anxious to get ARCs so I can get them into everyone's hands.
