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.

Sunday Salon 4/27 - Live from Cincinnati

Hello, everyone! I hope you've all had an enjoyable week, full of wonderful reading opportunities.

This weeks Salon will be a short one for me, as I'm still in Cincinnati visiting family and am posting this from my phone (ah, the joys of technology!). Combine that with the fact that I've only read half of Agatha Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd this past week, and I actually have very little to post about. I don't know what happened to my week. One minute I've got all the time in the world, and suddenly, whiz bang, there it goes! Oh well, hopefully this week will be better.

I've continued reading Jeff Smith's Bone and have stuck to my one issue a day rule. I've finished the first section of the book, and we've learned who most of the principle characters are now, so we should be moving into the full development of the story now.

It's getting late and I need my beauty sleep, but I didn't want to let a Sunday slip by without at least a little Salon.

Happy reading, everyone!

Wow - I'm impressed that you posted a whole post from your phone! What did we do before today's wondrous technology!

Oh my gosh, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. It has been years since I read that. Isn't that the one with the vegetable marrows? Whatever they are.

Even answering my phone can defeat me. I am totally awe-struck!

Thanks for everyone's comments. I had an enjoyable time in Cincinatti. I had never been there before, and it's quite an impressive city. I enjoyed walking around and looking at all the interesting architecture.

I'm still reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. For whatever reason, this one seems to be taking forever!
