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 - Horns by Joe Hill


I recently purchased a copy of Joe Hill's Horns as he will be doing a signing at a Borders close to where my sister lives in Maine (I live in Michigan) and since she's had his other books signed for me before, she offered to go ahead and head over to meet him again for me. So, I purchased Horns and the second volume of Locke & Key from Amazon and had them shipped to her.

Well, much to my surprise, last night I got home to a package from HarperCollins with a copy of Horns enclosed. I had attempted to get an ARC of the book months ago and shortly received an email back saying unfortunately they had run out of stock on the ARC, so I thought, no biggie, I'll just buy it when it comes out. And then I still got a brand new hardcover edition in the mail the week after I bought my copy and had it shipped to Maine.

So, long story not so short, HarperCollins' generosity to me becomes my generosity to you as I'll ship my extra copy of Horns to one of my readers. Just leave me a comment on this post for an entry, and if you blog about this giveaway, link back to the post, or mention it on Twitter or Facebook and just let me know and you'll get more entries. I'm going to leave this open until Friday, March 12, 2010. Unfortunately, I'll only be shipping to a US address as international shipping can just get a little too expensive and complicated.

Good luck and happy reading!

Unfortunately, I have no read the book yet. I have read the first volume of his Locke and Key graphic novel series, and most of the short stories from 20th Century Ghosts and have been very impressed with what I've read from those (I like to space my short stories collections out when I really enjoy them). So, alas, I can give no recommendation on Horns whatsoever, I just have the extra copy that I thought I would pass along to someone who wanted a copy.
