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.

Beth Kephart

I just discovered that Beth Kephart has a blog. Now, who is Beth Kephart, you may ask? To be honest, I don't know of her all that well. What I do know is that her memoir, Into the Tangle of Friendship, has remained with me for years after I read it. Into the Tangle of Friendship is about the strings and threads of friendship that make up our lives. I remember reading it, and how it spoke to me of my friendships at the time. I could relate to so much of the book.

I had always meant to read more by her, but as with so much in life, these thoughts got filed away as more and more books were released that I wanted to read. Well, discovering her blog today has rekindled that desire to read more. I've found that in addition to her memoirs, she has also penned several YA books as well. I picked up another memoir not that long ago at a library sale, Ghosts in the Garden, so I think I know what I'll be reading next.

If you've never read her, I can't recommend anything beyond Into the Tangle of Friendship, but based on that alone, I would say that she is well worth the reading. She just has a way with words. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Happy reading!

You are very, very kind. Thank you for remembering, and for noticing in the first place.

Wow. Thank YOU for taking time to stop by!

And you are more than welcome. I'm simply abashed that I have yet to read anything beyond Into the Tangle of Friendship. I have that and Ghosts in the Garden moved right to the top of my TBR pile. I'm looking forward to reacquainting myself with you writing.

Don't worry, please. That you somehow managed to find a single one of my books to read is a great and kind thing.
