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!
2017 edit
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.

1001 Books Updated?


I just discovered that the 1001 Book list has been updated to include more recent books. Which means that some of the books on the list have been removed. Which means that the number of books that I have read from the list has dropped from 30 to 26.

**le sigh**

While I was embarrassed to have read so few books from this list, it's even more discouraging to watch my numbers go down!!

Also, 2 of the books that I had in my 1001 category for my 9-9-9 Challenge have been removed, so I need to go find 2 more now to take their place.

Mr. Boxall needs to learn to leave his list alone!!

That is discouraging. Always gives little credence to the importance of the books on the list if they can come and go at random. Adding is fine...just increase the number...don't remove books.

I agree - or just make an addendum to the list. Just because new books have been written doesn't take away from the books that have come before.

agreed. and like you some of the books for my 999 came from the original list. I already own them and it goes with my new new books challenge.

So you know what. I am still gonna count them as 1001. I'll just try to remember to add a note saying that its from the 2006 list. That book is still out there. So they are still valid. Yuppers. That is what I am gonna do.
