I just wanted to make an announcement to all the readers of My Overstuffed Bookshelf.

Recently their was a death in my family.  It has been a hard and stressful time these last few days.  As the family gets things settled, plus dealing with the children being home for summer vacation, I ask my readers to be patient with me on review posts for a few days.

The reviews will be slow going for a few days, but I will try my best to get things going again once the routine around my house has calmed down.  Hopefully this will only take a few days, but be prepared for the posts to be maybe one a day instead of a few I usually do.  I have a ton of reviews to post, and after not being able to get Windows Live Writer to work on my computer, I am doing them the old fashioned way.

I hope you all will stick around a few more days until things settle down on my end.  Thank you to everyone who has continued to stay and read my blog! I appreciate each and every one of my followers and friends!
