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.

2017 edit #2
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.

New gift edition of Stardust by Neil Gaiman coming from William Morrow


William Morrow is publishing a new gift edition of Neil Gaiman's Stardust next week on October 30, 2012. The book includes a new introduction and an extended acknowledgements by Gaiman as well as an original frontispiece and chapter headers by the incredible Charles Vess.

The book itself is just lovely. Gaiman mentions in his introduction how he hoped that the new edition could be printed as if it were a volume published in the 1920s, and I think that William Morrow accomplished that task very well. The cloth bound cover, lack of a dust jacket and duotone printed illustrations all come together to create a fantastic edition that will make the perfect gift for both new readers of Stardust and old friends of the book alike.
