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.

Today in books, or another surprise envelope from HarperCollins!

I went to get the mail today, and lo and behold! a surprise envelope from HarperCollins was waiting for me. Inside were finished copies of three new books, including Kim Harrison's latest, Pale Demon, which I've been seeing over and over lately and I've been thinking about starting this series, so here is an excellent reason! I also received The Bone Yard by Jefferson Bass, an author and series neither of which I've heard of before, but the book sounds great. Lastly was the "Author's Cut Special Edition" of Christine Feehan's Dark Prince, the first book in her Dark Prince series and the first time it's been released in hardcover and also including over 100 pages of new material that wasn't in the first release.

So, many thanks to HarperCollins! I've got some great reading to be looking forward to.

Happy reading!

I like your selection of books you're reading...nice variety. We tend to get stuck in one or two genres. Good luck on your goal of 100 books. I love reading too!

Hi Peggy! Thanks for stopping by. I like to vary my reading so that I don't ever feel like I get stuck in a rut, even though I've been suffering through a month long reading slump right now. But with all these new books I've been receiving, I've been getting the itch to pick up something new to read! =)
