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.

63. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak



Title: Where the Wild Things Are
Author: Maurice Sendak
Copyright: 1963
Pages: 48
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 4/5 stars
Finished: 8-17-08

I had a pleasant surprise last night while going through a stack of old magazines I discovered in the back of my closet. I discovered that I had a copy of Where the Wild Things Are tucked away in that stack of magazines!

Not much more can be said for this children's classic tale that hasn't already been said before. I'm almost sure that everyone has read this at one point or another in their lives, and if you haven't, it's worth it. I know that it was the illustrations that I remember most from my childhood, and as I read it again last night, they all came back to me in a rush of nostalgia!

No child's library should be without this book.

**preemptive defensive post**

Ok, ok - I know this is completely cheating but I was delighted to have found that I still have this book, and I promised myself at the beginning of the year that I would count anything that I read cover to cover after I skipped a whole bunch last year. So there! :P

I love this. Do you know his other work? All of it has that very creepy edge to it. Children, of course, love them!
