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.

13. Getting Along Famously by Melissa Hellstern



Title: Getting Along Famously
Author: Melissa Hellstern
Copyright: 2008
Pages: 208
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 3/5 stars
Finished: 2-19-09

To be perfectly honest, the only reason that I picked up this book is because it had Audrey Hepburn on the cover. I think she is fabulous, and I decided that maybe since the book featured Audrey Hepburn on the cover, it couldn't be all that bad, right? Well, luckily I was right. Getting Along Famously is a collection of vignettes about famous friendships. Audrey Hepburn & Sofia Lauren; Julie Andrews & Carol Burnett; Lucille Ball & Vivian Vance to name a few. Each vignette gives a little history on the friendship and each person and includes photos and additional quotes and anecdotes from their lives. A fun little volume, not hard to read at all, but informative all the same.
