Between knitting, traveling and reading this has to be one of my most productive summers ever!. You have read about my traveling and my knitting( there is more of that to come, btw), but I have said very little about my reading.
This is a list of all the books I have read since June 1, 2007:
The Other Boleyn Girl
The Victory of Surrender
Funny In Farsi
Mt Sister's Keeper
I also listened to the Friday Night Knitting Club on cd!
Whew! How did I manage that? Well, I joined a reading group last year and 3 of these books were read within that group. Its a great motivator. But, I also turned off the TV a lot. I realized that I am just way too familiar with and even attached to tons of TV shows. So, when the seasons ended for some of the shows I was devoted to, I decided not to find a summer substitute and to spend more time reading. I really love to read anyway, so this was not hard to do.
The books I read this summer were really great. I love a good story and I must say, all of these were winners.
So, when I look back on this wonderful summer, I can really say that I thouroughly enjoyed myself and accomplished a lot of the things I wanted to do. Lots of knitting, lots of reading and great great fellowship with family and friends. I will post a summer wrap up next and include some more knitting content!
Oh, just to throw in a little bit of knitting content:
My Granny Square Throw
I am waiting for some more white yarn so that I can finish this. But it will be finished soon!
Toodles for now!
PS: If you are like me and you like to read, like to knit and even like to read stories with characters who knit, these books are for you:
Friday Night Knitting Club
And bonus! I read somewhere that there are some patterns based on the projects the characters "Family Tree" knit.
