ANNOUNCEMENT
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 bear with me as I still continue to recover.

the little c

Hi kids.

Sorry I've been MIA for a while now, but I've had a lot going on lately. After numerous months of testing, last Wednesday I was diagnosed with Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma, stage 4. It sounds scary, but in the grand scheme of cancers, it's not considered a Big C, just a little c (according to my oncologist). I'm starting chemo this Wednesday or Thursday, which should go on for about 4 1/2 months, and then my oncologist is convinced that I'll be just fine and it will be totally manageable and I'll probably not have to worry about it anymore. Fingers crossed, right?

I've been reading, but it's been sporadic, and I've slept most weekends away, so there hasn't been a lot of online time right now, so I hope everyone is doing well and reading lots of fabulous books! I'll stop in when I can and leave some updates.

Happy reading, everybody!
