A Short Break. . .

Hello My Glorious Readers,

I know, I know!  I didn't post anything this past weekend!  Believe me when I tell you, I've been so damn busy, I can't see straight half the time.  It's the holidays and things need to be done and there's just not enough time to do them all.  So, I decided to give my mind a rest. It stays on the grind constantly, but every now and again, it needs to just sit back and do absolutely nothing, which is exactly what we spent the weekend doing.

Please do not take it personal!  We had every intention on writing a post, just didn't have the energy to do it.  And, since it is the holidays, we're going to take a short break and come back better than ever for the new year.

Also, for those of you who took the reading challenge, YOU do realize that you have about 16 days left to complete for the 2014 year.  My goodness!  Doesn't it seem like we just started our challenge the other day, but that was 11 months ago.  Damn!  I don't know about you, but for me, 2014 is a complete blur!  I've never seen a year fly by so fast.  It's as if the year almost didn't happen, but I know that it has.  Where did the time go?  Wow!

So, in order for us to spend time with our families and take care of things we need to for the holidays, we're going to break.  Oh. . .before I forget, one other thing we plan to do beginning 2015, is host an awards ceremony for those independent authors who guest appeared right here on Mello & June, as well as opinionated posts hosted by yours truly. Those authors who received the highest hits during the weekends they featured will be given the Curtie Curt Award.

When we return in the new year, we'll go over what that award is and what it stands for.  I'll also advise our readers which of my opinionated blog posts received the highest hits and comments on Twitter.  The funny thing is, these posts are still receiving hits, which is why we have to wait until the new year to tabulate the numbers.  Those authors who have won this prestigious award will be contacted via email, with the meme attached which they may display on their websites to let their fans know what it's about.   You'll be able to read more about it in a few weeks.  

In the meantime, Mello & June, It's a Book Thang! would like to thank each and every one of our supporters.  Anyone who visits our blog is a welcomed special guest!  We don't discriminate and we invite all people to leave their comments, whether we agree with the reader's view and/or opinion.  We're about freedom of expression here!  If it weren't for YOU, we couldn't do what we do, so for that, we thank you!  We hope you continue to support us in the 2015 new year!

We'd like to say Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You and we look forward to rappin' with you next year!  There are some hot new books coming out and I can't wait to delve right in!

P.S.  The 2014 Reading Challenge on Goodreads is nearing a close!  Get those books read so your challenges may be met!  Drop us a line on our contacts form and let us know how many books you've read for the year and what you plan to read for the upcoming!

God Bless!
