On Break till 2015

Fellow Readers,

So I know this way earlier than I usually take my break, but I am trying to finish up some writing projects of my own (yes even I am under the delusion that I can write a book).  But come January I will be back and ready with new books to discover and appreciate.  In the mean time I will still be checking on this blog, so if you have any suggestions to add to my reading list let me know.
