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.

the little c and reading


Turns out, the little c might actually be a medium C (still not to the BIG C yet, tho!), and there might be some more chemo in my future. If that's not frustrating enough on its own, the stress of not knowing what's going on has made reading very difficult for me right now. What should be a wonderful, fantastic escape for me has turned into a discouragement as all of my energy for the day is pretty much spent before I get a chance to get home and read. You wouldn't think reading should take any energy at all, but I sit down and fairly regularly just fall asleep, sometimes with a book open in my lap.

So, anyone waiting on reviews, please bear with me. They're coming. I'll get caught up. I just need to get to next Monday and find out more about what's going on with my body. I think once I have a plan of attack, things will begin to fall into place and I'll be able to get back to my regularly scheduled reading program.

In the meantime, for all of you out there, happy reading!
