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.

54. Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition by Brian Froud


Title: Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition
Series: Lady Cottington
Author: Brian Froud
Copyright: 2005
Pages: 72
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 4/5 stars
Finished: 7-8-08

OK, I admit, this is cheating on my reading challenge just a little bit. I read the original edition of Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book earlier in the year after I received the next 2 books in Brian Froud's "series" of Lady Cottington books for Christmas. I found this edition at an outlet store for $4 and couldn't pass it up. In addition to the original text, the new 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition comes with new cover art, a new foreword, 8 additional pages of story, a DVD mockumentary about Lady Cottington and her unique ability to trap fairies in her scrapbook and a new pressed fairy window cling (which I admit to having the first one in my car now - I have it on the corner of my windshield, so that it doesn't look so much as a pressed fairy as a fairy that has been smashed on my windshield whilst driving down the road). It's a very witty and clever book, and the drawings of the pressed fairies are hysterical.
