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.

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon, Post #1


OK, so I'm starting Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon now. I have no delusions of finishing the full 24 hours, but I'm devoting as much of my day to reading as I'm able to. I have no idea how much posting I'll be doing throughout the day as this is the first time I've ever done this, so we'll see how the day goes. =)

The Hour 1 Meme for the day is:

Where are you reading from today? Lansing, MI

3 facts about me …

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? About 10, as I don't really know what I'm going to be in the mood for. I've got plenty of books around the house if those don't work for me.

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? Basically, the only goal I have is to get through the 4 books I'm in the middle of now, and then work my way through what I've got here. I want to read books that I've got set aside for Challenges to help me get caught up today.

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? Nope, this is my first time, so no advice from me!

OK, that's all the posting for now! I need to get reading!! =)
