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.

Tuesday Thingers... but on a Wednesday! May 21, 2008 (see how rebellious I am?)

OK, so the truth is, I simply forgot about Tuesday Thingers this week.
I hang my head in shame.
So here is my contribution to Tuesday Thingers, but on a Wednesday.

On to this week's topic: Discussion groups. Do you belong to any (besides Early Reviewers)? Approximately how many? Are there any in particular that you participate in more avidly? How often do you check?

I belong to 11 and watch one other on LT. I only actively participate in 2 of them (The Green Dragon and 50 Book Challenge). I have been posting regularly in the J.R. Englery AuthorChat discussion thread, and will probably participate in other AuthorChats if the author catches my eye. I have a horrible habit of mostly only watching threads, though. Rarely do I act as a regular participant in any one Discussion Group as a whole. I think "lurker" is the word that best describes my interactions with the Discussion Groups.

I think lurker describes me very well. Early Reviewers and 50 Book Challenge and the odd delve into the threads on The Green Dragon and some others but I rarely post any more, unless the topic really grabs my attention.

You are not alone! I completely forgot until I saw it posted on someone's blog. :)
