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.

Sunday Salon 19 VI 11 - Another slow week, but this time I've got a giveaway!

Good morning, fellow Salon Members! Ah, another slow week at from my bookshelf. It seems to be par for course lately around here. But, this time I've got a giveaway for my faithful readers! This week, I read Penelope Przekop's Centerpieces. Please click on the link and read my review. I think Penelope is one of the most unique authors that I have read, and she has a way of telling a story about the human condition that not many authors can match. Her stories have been varied in their subjects, but one thing she has in common is her ability to capture her characters voices and the journeys they travel in her books. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading on of her books, have I got a treat for you!

Penelope has graciously supplied a copy of Centerpieces for me to give away on my blog, and as an extra added bonus, I have a used copy of her previous book, Aberrations, to include in the giveaway. All you need to do to enter is fill out THIS FORM. Sorry, this contest is only open to the US and will be kept open until Sunday, June 26, 2011.

It's a short entry this week, as I'm just finishing up Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and am anxious to get back to reading, so until next time, happy reading!
