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.

Book giveaway #1 - The Maze Runner by James Dashner


I had the opportunity to meet James Dashner last month, and due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to buy a second copy of his new book, The Maze Runner, in order to get a signed copy. But this works out in your favor! Because, now that I have 2 copies of the book, I have one to share. So, I'll be sending off my extra copy to one lucky reader. All you need to do is leave a comment here. And for extra 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!

I'll leave this open until next Sunday, December 13, 2009.

Good luck!!

That's great that you got to go to Dashner's book signing. Maybe I will make it to one at some point. I really loved the first 13th Reality book. Have you read it?

Hi Megan!

I've read the first 13th Reality book, and have the 2nd but haven't read that yet. I'm waiting until next year when the 3rd is released and read all three then.

Have you read The Maze Runner yet?
