Hello my book friends!
As many of you know, I have been "sick" and homebound for over a month now. And during this time, I have not been able to read or spend much time on the internet since it makes me dizzy and more tired.
I have not been able to post much or keep up with my reading and blogging schedule, and I sincerely apologize for this. And I am SO very sorry for the tours, updates, etc. that I have missed during this time too.
It's finally time for me to admit that I need to take a permanent blogging break.
I don't know how long it will be for. Maybe a few more weeks... but it could be months :(
I miss you all so very much! The book community is one of the most caring and understandable communities I have ever been a part of! And I truly appreciate all of you that have reached out to me with concern!
I am really missing my books and reading time! My family has never seen me not reading or carrying around a book, they know I must be feeling really crummy not to, and it hurts them just as much. I have the best husband, kiddos, parents, sister and brother-in-law ever! I don't know how I would manage without them all!...
I am so sad to have also been missing out on a few local signings and events, mainly Jen Calonita's 'The Grass is Always Greener' signing this past week - she is such a fab author, you should all check out her Belles Series pronto!
And I'm also sad to finally have to say that I will probably not be up to going to BEA this year. It is such a privilege to be allowed to attend. And I am going to miss seeing so many wonderful faces this year.
Also, a quick shout out to Mike at The Subtle Chronicler! He is a great book blogger and reviewer and deserves much more attention than he has received. I asked him to review a few books for me and he was so sweet to say yes! Here is his review of The Namesake by Steven Parlato... please stop by and leave a comment! Thank you! and thank you Mike for your help!!!
Last but not least... I have received an amazing stack of books this month from so many wonderful
publishers, giveaways, swaps, etc! (I'm participating in Stacking the Shelves.)
