You may have noticed I haven't been posting as much.  That's partly because I had quite a few commitments coming up so I've been reading those books and getting the reviews scheduled for the future.

The other reason is more important.  If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll recall I had a bout with lung cancer a couple years ago.  This winter I was sick again for week after week and then was diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer.  I've had all the tests so now I'm all set to start another round of chemotherapy next week.  

This time I'm not so confident, nor am I as cheerful as I was before.  I'll get my attitude straightened out, I'm sure, but I don't know how much chemo will affect me this time with different medications.  I just hope I don't get chemo-brain again.  

At any rate, I'm not accepting as many books for review for the time being.  Who knows?  Maybe I'll even get to make a dent in my TBR piles.  I'll post reviews as much as I can, but don't think I have forgotten you because I would never do that.

Once again my friends including you virtual friends I have yet to meet, and of course books will be my comfort and joy as I renew my fight for health.  Thank you for your support and patience.


  1. Barbara, I am so sorry to hear about this latest setback. I do hope you bounce back quickly after the chemo. Will be rooting for you.

  2. I wish you the best of luck, Barbara. Stay strong.

  3. I'm sorry to hear your news. I know chemo is rough but, it'll be worth it, when it does its job. I'll be praying for you!

  4. So sorry to read this! Best wishes for the chemotherapy sessions and your renewed health.
