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.

2015 ALA Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits

So, I made a last minute decision this weekend and attended the 2015 ALA Midwinter Meeting Exhibits.

I had planned to only go on Saturday, but the Super Bowl Blizzard thought differently, so if I was going to be stuck in Chicago, why not make the best of it and go on Sunday too, right?! I got to meet a slew of authors over the two days, and picked up a fair number of books for myself and friends. (How many books you ask? 153. Don't judge me.) I'll have a complete list of the books up this weekend.

Happy reading!
