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!
2017 editI 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 #2I 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 bear with me as I still continue to recover.

The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
Title: The Halloween Tree
Author: Ray Bradbury
Author Website: raybradbury.com
Rating: 4/5 stars
On a race through history with the mysterious Mr. Moundshroud, 8 boys must learn the secrets and origins of Halloween night in order that they might save the life of their friend, Pipkin, who has been stricken ill on Halloween. Ray Bradbury weaves an imaginative story that creates a rather simplified but no less interesting history of Halloween night and the customs and cultural significances throughout history that help to create the holiday that we celebrate today. With his usual imagery, Bradbury's story is steeped in the eerie and sometimes scary nature that is Halloween night. One of my favorites to read this time of year.
