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.

Reading Challenges 2010

So, here are the reading challenges that I have going for 2010:

Personal Challenges
100 Books - Reading 100 books over the year (can he do it?)
1001 Challenge - 1 book from the 1001 List a month
Agatha Christie Challenge - 1 Book by Agatha Christie a month
Baker's Dozen Challenge - 13 books with the number 13 somehow in the title

LibraryThing Challenges
TIOLI Challenge - The Take It Or Leave It Challenge: You do it if you want to for that month. If you don’t want to do it, you don’t do it. That’s it. Seems fairly simple.
1010 in 2010 Challenge - Any number of books in 10 categories of your choosing. Again, seems fairly simple enough.

Other Challenges
The Beth Kephart Reading Challenge - select 4 books written by Beth Kephart and read them before June 30, 2010.

I'll be interested to see how I can keep up with all of these this year, but I'm hoping that I can find several crossover books that can count in several categories at one time.

Happy reading!
