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.

Hello, new book! The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

LibraryThing Early Reviewers

Yay! I finally received The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton in the mail today.

"But wait!" you say. "Didn't you tell us that you weren't going to buy any more books this month, David?"

Ah, yes, I did say that! How astute of you to remind me. However, The Wednesday Sisters was actually an offering through LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program from last month, so technically, not only did it became part of my library then, when I was selected to read it, but I actually didn't pay for it either! I can't help it that it didn't arrive in my mailbox until now...

See how tricksy I am? I can find a loophole in my own reasoning!

New books to the library don't count against your book ban if they are free. Only those that you actively pay for count as a slip and fall. ;-)

I look forward to seeing your review of this one. It was one of the ones I tried for but didn't get. =(

Hi, wanted to stop by. Found your blog on LT's Early Reviewers and have signed up for the fun Tuesday event! :) Thinging Through Tuesday

I noticed you are also on The Sunday Salon. Somehow I missed you!

I love those free books!

When it comes to buying books we've promised we won't we can all find excuses. It's the mark of a born bibliophile!
