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.

Sunday Salon 8 III 2009 - Evening Edition

Good morning, fellow Salon Members! Sorry for the lateness of my posting today. I spent this past weekend visiting a friend in Chicago, and just got home from the Windy City! We spent a lovely (if not partially rain-soaked) couple of days taking in the sites and catching up. It was a good weekend.

My Miss Marple March is going well. I've finished Murder at the Vicarage and The Thirteen Problems (reviews to come sometime this week) and have got a decent start on The Body in the Library. I picked up The Moving Finger and Three Blind Mice whilst in Chicago and will probably order the remaining books from Amazon, so I should be going on quite nicely with the remainder of my month's reading!

Not much else to report, other than one little other bit of business. We have a winner of the autographed copy of Penelope Przekop's Aberrations!! Congratulations, Debs Desk, you were randomly chosen to be our winner! Everyone's name was thrown into a bag the appropriate number of entries, and my roommate pulled the winning name. Thank you again to everyone that participated and an especially big thank you to Penelope donating the book for the drawing. Please make sure to check out her blog, Aberration Nation, as well!

OK, that's it for today. It's been a long travel day, and I think I hear the siren call of a book and my bed, and that call must be answered. Happy reading!

**Stop the presses - we've got a Later Evening Edition Update!**

Whilst reviewing some old comments on the blog, I discovered that somehow I missed that I have a fabulous blog! Caspette, who runs the blog The Narrative Causality (you should go check it out!) nominated my blog for the Your Blog is Fabulous award!! Thank you so much, Caspette! This makes my day!!
