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.

Shannon Hale talks about her new book, Dangerous, and is delightfully excitable!

OK, so I've never read anything by Shannon Hale before, but she is one of Sarah's favs so when we heard that she was going to be at Schuler Books, we knew we were going to see her. What I didn't know about Shannon Hale is that she is a certified nerd/geek of the finest quality, and I was immediately smitten with her! And she is delightfully excitable! (It's really hard to get a pic of her mid-talk, because she's so excited about everything she's talking about that she never really stops moving! Her excitement is addicting.) And I can't wait to read Dangerous, as she is one of those authors that actually takes the time to talk to scientists to make sure that the science fiction in her book is grounded more in science than fiction, because, you know, science is cool and all that.

So, there is it is. We just got back a short time ago from the signing, and I've still buzzing in author fan-girling afterglow and it's time for me to try to go to bed!
