I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Sunday Salon 11 I 2009
Good morning, fellow Salon Members! Oh, it has been awhile, hasn't it? It seems the year end just flew right by me, and there didn't seem to be much time for anything! But it's a new year, and while I've already missed a couple of weeks, I'd like to try to get back into my routine, part of which is visiting around the Salons. I hope that everyone had a pleasant and happy holiday season and new year!
I've set myself for quite the reading challenge this year, and I've been a little slow going getting into it. So far, I've read 3 books this year, Castle Waiting by Linda Medley (which I received through LibraryThing's SantaThing program), Perfect...on Paper by Maria Murnane (I read this for a blog tour for Maria) and Peter Pan J. M. Barrie (read for my 9-9-9 Challenge in the Classics Category; hopefully today I'll be able to get around to writing my thoughts on it). I think I'm going to read Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean next, to keep in-theme with Peter Pan. After that, I have 2 more books that I need to read for reviews, and then there are yet 2 more coming in the mail! How I'll get through my 9-9-9 with all these review books coming, I'll never know...
Next weekend, I'm going to Chicago to visit C, so I think I'm going to take Devil in the White City by Erik Larson with me. Beyond that, I think I'm going to have my friend S come over and randomly grab something for me from my 9-9-9 selections.
It's a cold and snowy day here today, perfect for cozying up with a good book and a cuppa, so I think I'll be returning to Neverland very soon.
Happy reading, everyone!
