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.

A Calendar of Tales by Neil Gaiman and You

Title: A Calendar of Tales
Author: Neil Gaiman and You
Project Website: A Calendar of Tales

A Calendar of Tales was a collaborative project between Neil Gaiman, Blackberry, and the general public. Blackberry asked Neil Gaiman to ask Twitter questions for each month, and Gaiman then took his twelve favorite responses (one for each month), and wrote a story based on that idea. Blackberry then asked for people to submit their own artwork or videos that used Gaiman reading his stories as the soundtrack. Basically, it was one big artistic, interactive collaboration between Gaiman and his fans, and actually seemed to have worked out rather well.

Like any collection of short fiction, some stories are better than others (I particularly liked the very first story for January the best), but overall, each of the stories can stand up on their own.

If you're interested in finding out more about the project, or reading the stories themselves, you can visit the website for the project here.

Happy reading!
