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.

Peter S. Beagle - need I say more?

Peter S. Beagle is currently on tour promoting a newly remastered edition of the animated classic based on his noel, The Last Unicorn. Same friends and I were lucky enough to be able to get tickets to his stop in Chicago at the Music Box Theater. Peter was generous enough to sign every single book that we brought to the signing, and took time out to talk to every single person in line. He even recited Dr. Seuss' "Too Many Daves" while he was signing my books! It was a magical evening. He's scheduled to be in Michigan in 2016, and you can believe I'll be there again to see him!
