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 editI 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. 2017 edit #2I 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.

The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas by Ursula Le Guin
Title: The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas
Author: Ursula Le Guin
Copyright: 1992 (according to Amazon)
Format: Online short story
Rating: 4/5 stars
While doing my rounds of my favorite blogs today, I found this posting at Gail's blog about Ursula Le Guin's short story The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas, and was intrigued so gave the story a read. It's a relatively short piece (it should take about 15 minutes to read, if that) that says so much more than what is written.
I'd like to say that I could rise above it all and make the better choice, but given a real opportunity like this, I don't know that I could. Read the story here and think about what your decision would be.
