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 editI 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 #2I 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.

Shatterboy by Scott William Carter
Author: Scott William Carter
I'm not actually counting this towards my reading goal for the year, but I did want to make mention of it. I don't know where it can be found to read other than through Apple's iBook app, where it is being offered as a free download right now.
It's a short story that revolves around Rebecca, who discovers a boy made of glass at the recycling center the day her husband is filing for divorce. At first, she thinks he is nothing more than a doll, until he moves, and she realizes that he is, in fact, alive.
What follows is a quick but eerie story of her growing obsession with the glass boys safety (she's afraid that he may break) and her need to keep him close to her, so that she can love him.
It's only about 20-ish pages on my iBook and it only took me a few minutes to read, but it was a creepy little story all the same and just thought it worth mentioning.
