Shelfari finally invents the widget & other news

Yaay, I have been posting my Books on Shelfari for the last 6 months or so, and this week they have FINALLY programmed a widget so you can see my library on my blog.

Other news this week - my Mother-in-law was admitted to Hospital this week with lesions in her lungs and her brain. The doctors suspect cancer, but can't do a biopsy until next week. She has been a heavy smoker for the last 50 years and she has been told that she MUST quit. Despite trying several times, it will very hard for her to go cold turkey.

And I am also scheduled for surgery in 3 weeks time at the end of July. I have a cyst in my brain. It is not a tumour and it is not malignant, but its position is dangerous. If everything goes well, I should be back home inside a week, but will be off work for at least 2 months, maybe more.

All the more time to read and blog.

HI, Historia: Came over from the Yahoo group to check out your blog. You've done a nice job - I have enjoyed reading your book reviews.

I am sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery and your MIL's illness. I wish you both good luck as you heal and recover.

Happy Reading!
