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 #4


I'm currently working on my 2nd book for Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon, Kathy Appelt's The Underneath. I decided to hold off running my errands until tomorrow, but the day was still slightly hijacked by a short nap (**blush**), but I'm feeling refreshed and ready to get back to reading! =)

See that nap was a blessing in disguise. =)

Bybee said...

That nap will really pay off later. Don't blush!

Kailana said...

Naps are a good thing. I wouldn't worry about it! Happy reading!

a word, a sentence, a paragraph, a page. . .
continue on to that final sigh of contentment
and then do it again. :)

Naps are great! I'd love to hear what you think of the Underneath. Happy reading.

Melis said...

The reading will stop
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
your book count will be higher
Just keep thinking about tomorrow
all the great books you will have to talk about
with your blog friends
If you get blurred or sore, or sleepy
Just stick up your chin
and grin
and say
My TO BE READ PILE, Tomorrow
will be smaller than it was before
and your spirits will soar
because then TOMORROW, TOMORROW You can go shopping TOMORROW at Amazon and BUY SOME MORE!

Naps have helped! **both of them - lol** But, I'm back to it now!

And a special thanks to Melis! =D That made me laugh out loud!
