I am reading some really silly book called "Undead and Unwed" that I got from the ship's library.  It seems to be about a blond former model turned vampire queen who really loves designer shoes. 


That book is the first in a series. I've listened to the first 3 or 4 of them. They are mindless fun.

To Kill a Mockingbird.

Much much better than I remember it being when I had to read it in high school.  I wrote a paper on it, comparing it to SE Hinton's The Outsiders.  Wish I still had it to see what kind of BS I spouted.  Smiley

the most frustrating pattern in the history of my knitting life.  I have probably looked at this piece of paper and re-read it over and over in the time it took you all to finish your books.

Have you tried writing it out yourself?  I found that if I was working on something that was like "K2 P4 KO repeat til end" or whatever, it helped to get some lined paper and write out every single line of knitting, especially if there was a repeat.  Then, when you finish each row of knitting, cross off the corresponding line on the paper.

its the chart of the design that is killing me.  The number of stitches in the design, the size of the squares, the colors I picked.... all a bad combo it seems.

I hate following charts, so I feel your pain.  I tried some illusion knitting a while back and finally just gave up.

I'm jealous, I wish I had the patience for knitting.

Everybody go read some John Updike....

Only because he passed away today.  I wouldn't recommend him for any other reason.

"Love in the Time of Cholera"

Not bad, but kind of difficult to pay attention to.  The author tends toward short transitions between story lines, and sometimes I have a hard time following what's going on.

Not bad though- I'm curious to see how it all pans out.

I'm listening to Enchantment by Orson Scott Card. It's great with the readers doing decent Russian accents.

I picked this up at the flea market so I'd have something to read while eating lunch alone.  Turned out to be a pretty good book.

It looks interesting. 

I'm still slogging through Love...Cholera, but now I'm also reading "Michael Tolliver Lives" and "Baghdad Without a Map" which are both much better.
