April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

RIP Maya Angelou

The world lost a beautiful voice today. Maya Angelou, literary great and civil rights activist, passed away at age 86. You can read more about her remarkable life at the New York Times website. I'm freely stealing this from a friend on Facebook, but it sums up my feelings perfectly as well:
While everyone must die when it's their time, there are some people that are so iconic that it breaks you up a little inside. Maya is definitely one of those people.
