Update-A break from social media

After blogging and writing reviews since 2007, I’ve decided to take a break. I’ve taken short breaks because of the holidays or surgery but never an extended break to rest.

I’ve already removed social media apps from my phone and tablet. If I take a peek at those things, then I will look at them on the laptop.

I’ve read a few other bloggers and writers who are taking a break or some who plan to take a break soon from social media.

The break begins today. The break will end on August 25th or before.

This blog will be silent. I do not plan to schedule posts to publish while I am on break.

After I return, The Sunday Salon, Quote of the Week, and reviews will return.

Happy Reading!


Update and Quarantine

I’m nearing the end of my right knee surgery recovery. However, in the past week my husband and I both have been sick. I tested negative for Covid. My husband tested positive for Covid. We both have several symptoms. I feel that even though I tested negative, most probably I too have it. We are quarantined at home. I am thankful that two weeks ago we stocked up on over-the-counter medicines and food items, most importantly I have plenty of tea to drink! (I’m a serious tea drinker.)

Yes, we have both had all the vaccinations. We have had Covid before, in November 2020.

In my opinion, this time the symptoms are worse.

I’m slowly coming back online with writing book reviews. Thank you!

End of the Year Update-2021

Thank you to all the participants of the Chunkster Reading Challenge in 2021. Bravo to all those who persevered and read those chunky page books!

I am not the host for the challenge in 2022. Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews is taking over as host. Thanks Becky! The link for her post with sign-up: Becky’s Book Reviews.

I plan to concentrate on my classics list for The Classics Club and my TBR pile in 2022.

I’m having right knee surgery on December 28, 2021. I plan to take time off at the end of this year and the early part of 2022 to recover.

Thank you so much for supporting me through follows, likes, and comments. I appreciate all of you.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Holiday Break

I’m planning to take a holiday break the last week of December through the 2nd or 3rd week of January. You will see a scheduled post during my off time.

I’m very thankful for all my followers, readers, and those who just happen to drop in for a look.

According to Goodreads, I read 164 books in 2020. Most of the books are reviewed on this blog.

Happy New Year!
