here's to the beginning of summer

Look what came in the mail yesterday. A new, signed book that I won in a contest over at Em's Bookshelf. Thanks Em! I have already started reading and am enjoying it so far.

So, the end of May has come and gone and I am far from being half way through the 100 books. I have read 33. Not bad, but not half.

May books:
26. Chosen by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast (may)
27. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (may)
28. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares (may)
29. Industrial Magic by Kelley Armstrong (may)
30. Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares (may)
31. Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares (may)
32. Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares (may)
33. The Host by Stephenie Meyer (may)

Current reading list:
Emma, Jane Austen
Harsh Cry of the Heron, Lian Hearn
House of Dance, Beth Kephart.
Haunted, Kelley Armstrong

Not sure how many of these I will get through before I leave for Italy.


I have finished the main knitting on my Tangled Yoke. All I need are the button bands and the buttons. I am also ready to turn the heal on my second Luna sock. A bit of my knitting mojo has returned.

Just in time, too. Last day of work is Thursday! Summer break is so close I can almost taste it. :)


  1. WOW one hundred awesome!!! I just bought a bunch of books at the thrift for my summer reading.


  2. Blech - You can have summer. Wake me up in November. ;)

  3. All through my childhood I read books all summer, okay all year long. But now that I knit... well it's hard to read a book and hold needles. Something has to go... too hard to choose. LOL

  4. I've read the first three sisterhood books, but need to read the fourth one before the movie comes out!

  5. I'm glad it arrived safe and sound and I hope you enjoyed it! :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
