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 #2


I'm taking a quick break from the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon. Just a short one, mind you, but a necessary one. A guy's got to eat breakfast right, and what's better than birthday carrot cake for breakfast?

Anyway, I thought I'd finish up Joe Hill's 20th Century Ghosts first off, but decided, in order to mix up the day a little, that I would read one story from the collection between each book that I read, so I've now moved on to beth Kephart's the Heart is Not a Size, and I've finished about half of that so far and am really enjoying it.

I've got myself nicely nested on my couch right now, with my coffee and stack of books, a pile of pillows, some good reading music in the CD player and a couple of bags of snacks for later (some almonds and some chips). I'm going to admit to leaving the house after I finish The Heart is Not a Size, as I have a couple of errands that I do have to run today, but then I'll be back and reading strong for the rest of the day!

Happy reading, everybody!!

Go book reader, go book reader, go book reader GOOOO! :-)

Hope you're having a great time!

I really want to read Joe Hill's collection (and Horns, too). I love Heart-Shaped Box!
