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.

Margaret Stohl promotes her new book, Icons

Margaret Stohl stopped by Schuler Books last night to promote the paperback release of her book, Icons. I'm going to admit up front that I haven't read anything by Margaret Stohl before, but the woman totally impressed me last night. She gave great advice for people who are scared to take that chance that they've always wanted to take (just take the chance!), great advice for writers, and great stories to tell of experiences in her life.

At the end of the night, she bought copies of her own book from the store to donate to local high schools and signed them all! I thought that was a pretty awesome thing to do, and yet one more reason why I will always stand behind the idea that all authors are superstars!

To purchase any of the books in this post, and help my local Indie bookstore, and help me buy more books, click the links above!
