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!
2017 edit
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.

Free books! Blog a Penguin Classic

More free books! Who doesn't like that?

Irish told me about Blog a Penguin Classic. Basically, if you are among the first 1,400 to register and are willing to read and write a review of a book within 6 weeks of receiving it, they will give you a free Penguin Classic. I rushed right over to the website and signed up, and within minutes received an email saying that I was selected to read Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. I've heard of Sir Gawain before, but have never read it, so am anxious to get it in hand.

Thanks Irish for letting me know and thanks Penguin for the free book!
