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.

2017 edit #2
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.

16. Bone Handbook by Jeff Smith

Author Website:

Format: Paperback
Rating: 3/5 stars
Finished: 2-14-10
Challenge: 100 Book 10

From Amazon:
This is the ultimate handbook for every BONE fan! Includes character profiles, a timeline of events, interviews with creator Jeff Smith and colorist Steve Hamaker, a showcase of cover art from the original BONE editions, a behind-the-scenes look at how the Scholastic editions were colorized, and other fun stuff!

The Bone Handbook is just what it sounds like, a source book of information concerning Jeff Smith's Bone. Printed as a companion to the Graphix/Scholastic reprints of the series, it is written in a slightly juvenile fashion, but that's because the Graphix/Scholastic versions have been marketed towards a younger audience. It still makes for a good refresher on what happens in the series and who the characters are. It's a really quick read, but fun all the same. If you are a fan of the Bone series, I'd say you'd probably enjoy this, just as a reminder of what went on in the series. It is a little spoiler-filled, so if you haven't read the series yet, be warned that this will give some of it away.
