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.

The Sunday Salon 13 July 2008

Hello, fellow Salon Members! I hope this loverly Sunday morning finds all of you healthy and well-read for the week.

It's nice to be back in a mood for reading. I've had a far more productive first 2 weeks in July than I did the entire month of June, such a dismal reading month! This last week, I tried to read the ARC The Spirit of the Place by Samuel Shem, which was a disappointment. I have moved on to my next ARC, Penelope Przekop's Aberrations, which proves to be a much better selection. I also enjoyed Walter Moers' A Wild Ride Through the Night. I also admit to cheating horribly on my reading challenge for the year, with a recent reread of Brian Froud's Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book, 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition.

Well, it appears to be a short Salon for me this week. My roomie just stopped by from housesitting for his parents, and we have decided to have lunch today and enjoy the beautiful day, so off I go. It is too loverly a day to be wasted indoors today.

I hope to be able to visit some of your Salons later in the day.

Happy reading, everyone!

I have a copy of Aberrations sitting here on my shelf to read and am looking forward to it.

I hope you have a great week.

Hi literary feline-

I read Aberrations all the way through yesterday. Once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down.

I'll be reviewing it later today, and will be interested to hear your take on it.
