Harry Potter, Challenges and Surgery

So, now that the Harry Potter Hype is officially over, It's time to move on. Except for those of you are right now reading the final Volume of the series. And of course we all know that HP and the Deathly Hallows was released at midnight local time last night (7 and a half hours ago as I write this). According to the detailed Review on Wiki, it's all about death, and more deaths, so I'm in no hurry to read it.

Right now I am unemployed, and waiting for surgery. I will be going into Hospital on Thursday 26th July, and will probably not be in any condition to write for anywhere from a week to a month afterwards. So this Blog will be silent for a while.

As for the Challenges. There has been quite a lot of discussion on the Challenges Yahoo group about whether or not we MUST stick to those books that we originally nominated for each Challenge. Normally I would try and stick to the list if I can, but right now since I dont have much time, I'm just going to read any book that fits the challenge parameters, because I want to finish as many challenges as possible in the next 5 days.

And I am hereby officially dropping out of the Something about Me Challenge since I probably wont be in any condition to read during August & September.

One thing to remember. Be patient with your recovery. My sister had her brain surgery in April and while much much better still doesn't feel completely back to normal.

Pamper yourself, rest lots,

I will be watching for your return.

Bets of luck with everything ahead of you. I'll be looking forward to your recovery and return to the world of book blogging when you feel up to it.

All my prayers,

Sam

I'm not crazy about stating what books for what challenges anyway just because I don't normally read that way, but that said, do what's best for your health and well being! Good luck on your surgery and I'll be hoping for a swift easy recovery for you.
