I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Sunday Salon 4 XII 2011 - setting aside 2011, will be back in 2012

The Sunday Salon.com

Good morning, fellow Salon Members! It's seems almost ridiculous at this point to be posting a Sunday Salon of this nature. This has been a very challenging year for me personally, and unfortunately From My Bookshelf has had to suffer as a result. I'm not going to go into details, because first and foremost I'm sure many of you honestly don't care, but secondly it was all things happening in my life that need not be anybody else's concern but my own. BUT, I do miss the sense of community that we bloggers have, and I want to become integrated in that again. So, in that spirit, I'm wrapping up 2011 now, putting a pretty bow on it and shelving it. I'm moving into a new home on January 1, 2012, and I'm looking at that as an opportunity to start fresh and new. From My Bookshelf will come back stronger than ever, but for right now, for my peace of mind, I need to just let it be for the next month and not think about it.

I hope those of you still left reading my little blog have a happy and safe holiday season, and as always, happy reading!
