Wow. It’s Tuesday. again. funny how that happens every single week, isn’t it? you’d think that posting just twice a week would give me plenty of stuff to write about. sometimes it does … and sometimes, all I’ve got is the same old stuff.
Since I last shared my knitting, I’ve made noticeable progress on The Classic (ravelry link)The body is slightly cropped, so I’m about 2/3 through … with a lot more twisted rib – this time knit flat – to finish. (and then sleeves – you can get some idea of how much knitting is left by how much yarn is left – ahem, it’s a bit)
I’ve made a lot more progress with the books. My August TBR is nearly all R(ead) and I had fun on Sunday planning out what to read next.
and then yesterday, I picked up another big stack from the library.These are all books I’ve heard about from friends, podcasts, or newsletters. I have Memorial Drive and The Season on audio, too. and The Sum of Us is one I listened to earlier this month and wanted to see the words on the page for taking notes (that’s the downside for me, with audio – it’s cumbersome to capture the take-aways for a book that has lots of them).
…which is why I was anxiously awaiting the UPS man todayThis book just came out today, but it was released the end of last month on LibroFM. I listened to it – all 30 hours! – earlier this month and knew I needed to own it. For sure this will be on my 2021 Favorites list. The writing is lyrical (no surprise – Jeffers is an award winning poet) and the story is epic, beautiful, and heartbreaking. I can’t wait to re-read it with a pencil and a tin of book darts.
I’ll be back here on Friday … with something … and maybe not just the same old stuff! not that there’s anything wrong with that … right?!
