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.

Tuesday Thingers 10 XII 08 (on a Wednesday!)

Today's topic: Most of us book bloggers like to write book reviews - if we don't love to write book reviews - but here's today's question. When it comes to LT (and your blog), do you review every book you read? Do you just review Early Reviewers or ARCs? Do you review only if you like a book, or only if you feel like you have to? How soon after reading do you post your review? Do you post them other places - other social networking sites, Amazon, etc.?

I try to review just about everything I read. Some reviews are longer than others, but I at least try to jot down at least a few lines about each book that I read. Usually if it is something that I'm reviewing as an ARC, I try to be a little more involved in my review, and I will review something whether or not I like it or not. Equally opportunity reviewing for me!

I try to review it fairly soon after I've read a book, only so that it's still fresh in my head, but that doesn't always work (and that's usually when the reviews are only a couple of lines).

I try to post all my reviews on LT, and when I think about it, I'll post them over on Amazon or B&N, but that doesn't always happen.
