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.

Oh, the randomness of it all...

Well, it seems like I have fallen right back into the realm of indecision. I'm still reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (which by all rights should not be taking me this long to read), and I'm already eyeing my shelf to see what I want to read next, but nothing seems to be speaking to me. So I'm trying a random drawing. I've entered all the books that are in my LT account that are labeled "Unread" and I've used a random number generator to pick a number that correlates to a book in my excel spreadsheet.

And the winner is... The Valkyries by Paulo Coelho.

ooohhh....neat trick. I might have to try that at some point.

I know that if I did that the very moment the winner appeared I would suddenly 'know' what it was I wanted to read - and it wouldn't be that one!

Well, there are already about 3 other books that seem to have caught my interest, but I am at least going to stick with this at least through this book. We'll see how that goes.
