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.

Fragment Friday (1): Room by Emma Donoghue

Welcome to my first edition of Fragment Friday, a weekly meme hosted by James from Book Chic Club, where we vlog a small snippet from a current read. My excerpt this week is from Room by Emma Donoghue. Room is available now from Little, Brown and Company, and comes highly recommended!

Please excuse the poor sound quality. After 6 tries (yes, 6 tries - this is the first time I've done this!), this is the best that I had. I promise that it will be better next week! You've got to start somewhere, right?

For those who view via a reader that strips out the video you can click here to see on YouTube or copy and paste this URL into your browser:

I hope you enjoyed this weeks fragment! Until next week, happy reading!

I am not a bully!! maybe I am...but you know you have fun. Awesome selection you make me want to read this even more now and I hate you for that because I don't have the time for it. *grumbles*

P.S. I'll also be happy until next week when I start to bully you to do it again. ;-)
