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.

Book giveaway - A Dog About Town, A Dog Among Diplomats and A Dog at Sea by J.F. Englert


J.F. Englert's latest installment in his clever Bull Moose Dog Run mystery series, A Dog at Sea, is going to be released later this year, and in celebration of the release, I'm giving away a set of all three books! You can read my reviews of the series here (A Dog About Town), here (A Dog Among Diplomats) and here (A Dog At Sea).

I'll be shipping the books through Amazon, so this giveaway is only going to be open to the U.S. this time. Also, because of Amazon's 4-for-3 deal, if the new book is included in this promotion after it is released, I'll even throw in a fourth book of the winner's choosing so long as it is covered under the promotion and is under $9.99. If the new book is not covered under the 4-for-3 deal, you'll just be getting the 3 books.

For a chance to win, just leave a comment to this post. If you would like more entries, follow my blog (if you are already, just let me know), link back to this post from your blog and tweet or mention this on Facebook! Just let me know that you've done each of these things and I'll throw your name in the hat again. (And not to worry - those that already left comments on the other post will still be counted!)

I'll leave this giveaway open until January 8, 2010 (that gives Amazon plenty of time to get the book in stock).

These books are really good and I'd like the word to get out as much as possible, so please let your fellow reader friends know about the contest!!

Good luck!!

Just discovered this series and have the kindle version of the first book. Would love to have the collection. First time on your blog. I love that you read across genres.

Thanks for stopping by everyone! The contest will be open for one more week and then I'll draw a winner!

And Arlene - I love to read across genres. There are so many good books out there that I never want to be tied into any one specific kind of book.
