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.

The "I Want Followers" Contest! Win a Signed Copy of Brunonia Barry's The Lace Reader

So, I'm a greedy individual. I see all the loverly followers on some of my fellow book blogger's websites, and I think to myself, I want that! I want followers. Lots and lots of followers. (See? I am greedy like that!)

So, here's the deal. You follow me, I give you a chance to win a signed copy of Brunonia Barry's The Lace Reader. (See? I'm generous, too!) If you post this on your blog, another entry! If you tweet it, another entry! If you recommend my blog to someone, and they follow me and leave a post saying you recommended the blog, another entry! And if you are already one of my loyal followers, you're automatically entered into the contest once. All I need from you is to leave a comment saying you've followed, blogged or tweeted, and I'll throw your name in the hat the appropriate number of times. I'm not going to go checking on all of these, so we're just going on the honor system here, kids.

If I start to get lots and lots of followers, I'll probably throw something else in to sweeten the deal; let's say, a $10 B&N gift card if I hit 50 followers or a $20 B&N gift card if I hit 100 followers, to be given out to a 2nd winner. So, you could potentially win both! Help me out here, kids! I want followers!! I'm going to leave this open for... a month? Does that sound good? Yeah, the contest will be open until October 15, 2010. Good luck!

And now the small print: I'll ship the book internationally, but I don't know if the B&N gift cards will work internationally or not, so the gift cards will only be available to US winners.
