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.

No To Age Banding!

I would like to join in on a small protest, and hope that you will too. Apparently, there is a proposal by publishers to put age limit "recommendations" on children's books. I think this is a perfectly ridiculous idea, but I would like to direct you to Table Talk's blog, here and here, where she explains the situation far more eloquently than I ever could.

If you agree with us that this is a ridiculous idea, please visit No To Age Banding and sign the protest. As of this posting, there are over 1,360 signatures on the list, and I for one would like to see that number increase.

Thanks for posting this, David. The more people that know about it and protest, the better.
