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 bare with me as I still continue to recover.

A quiet but moving and powerful novelette, The Lady Astronaut of Mars is the story of 63-year-old Elma, who was among the first to explore Mars, and now that she is older, she's not sure if she will ever be able to fulfill her dream of being among the stars again. When the opportunity is again presented to her, she must decide between the love for her husband, or her passion for the stars. This is a beautiful short story that has a surprisingly emotional impact. Highly recommended!
