Joining in with Ginny of Small Things for this week's yarn along.
This week has been busy, but I have been finding small moments to sneak in a bit of knitting or reading here and there. I am knitting this slouchy hat, for me. I am about halfway done, and hoping to finish it before I head to the coast next Sunday night. It needs a test drive before the weather warms up again!
I finished up Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior a couple of days ago. I love her. I love this book. It really hit home for me in so many ways. I want to have another chapter, or a sequel to find out what happens next, but I guess the unknown is part of what makes it so powerful. And, no surprise, I am still reading Moby Duck. have been reading this for way too long, but I have actually been moving forward in it once again. I seem to have re-found my moment and interest in the story, and I only have 100 pages left to go. And, because I just couldn't wait, I started Bright Side Up by Amy Spencer. I figured it couldn't hurt to start putting a more positive spin on the parts of my life that don't seem to go my way.
As my term is drawing to a close and summer is fast approaching, I am starting to put together my summer 2013 reading list. Always hard to narrow it down....
