BOOKLOVE

I’m still loving Frog Music as much as I did when I started it; since the story is told backward, end to beginning, the suspense  is building and I’m less sure of “who did what, when and why”.  I love that in a book – do you?   And since I’m very seldom book monogamous, I started Anya.  You can read about it here.

I’m linking with my usual Wednesday blogs, Tami, Frontier Dreams KCCO and Ginny’s Yarn Along.  Do you have others you’d like to share?

ON THE NEEDLES

Since the first version of Socks on a Plane was way too small, I frogged and started over, this time with a total of 64 stitches instead of 56 (as best I can remember, I seem to have blocked it from my memory) and this time around the fit is much better.  I’m glad because it just about kills me to frog something that is so close to being finished.  Close as in one inch of cuff and I’m finished and moving on.  I did it and I’m glad I did, but still…

Second Go Round

BOOKLOVE

I’m still reading God’s Hotel, which is taking longer than usual to finish since I seem to only read it when I’m on the treadmill.  This is a good thing most of the time because if I have a “special treadmill book”, climbing on and walking for 45 minutes or an hour doesn’t seem to be as much of a chore.  I downloaded a new book, Frog Music, that I’m looking forward to reading; I suppose you could call it my carrot and stick, since I’ve resolved to finish Hotel before I start anything new.

Socks on a Plane are sort of hibernating at the moment as the first one is way too small.  I’ve been trying to delude myself that they’re just “snug”.  They’re past snug, they’re too small, even too small for Bigmommy, who has teeny feet.  Dang.

BOOKLOVE 4/9/14

I’m still reading Victoria Sweet’s God’s Hotel.  Very interesting, premodern medicine, I’d never thought too much  about it.  Learning something new every time I pick it up.
