Current Escapes of the 2D Variety…

BOOKS!!!  😀

Who doesn’t love a good read, right?

Well…for me lately, it seems I’ve been loving them to the extreme, lol.  As I mentioned in the post before, I’ve been lining up books in each room of the house for me to pick up on the go and read a bit here and there.  I feel like I’m exhibiting definite ADD tendencies when it comes to my daily activities.  I hold my crazy long to-do list in my head and then flit from one item on the list to the other, while sneaking little breaks in between with my assorted books.

Here’s the low down: (each picture can be clicked to be taken to a site that contains more information about the publications)

Bedroom Nightstand:

This is an excellent series that wraps fantasy, history and lots of adventure with myths about twins…a subject I’ve always been fascinated with.

Actually, I’ve always kind of secretly desired to be a twin myself, lol!  She would of course be named Stephanie, to rhyme with Bethany and we’d have no end of fun playing practical jokes involving switching places when no one was looking, lol…

Desk:

I do have to say that this is one fabulous book!

It’s stuffed full with all kinds of advice for the knitting designer…

so much of which easily translates to us knitters of the loom variety.

🙂

Living Room:

I just picked this one up from the library this last week.

I usually have my nose in one type of knitting book or another somewhere in the house.  They’re indispensable tools for understanding how to improve on the craft of loom knitting.

This particular one’s got a lot of interesting information…lots of useful how-to’s and advice.

Netbook Laptop:

This is in my little netbook in Audible form and is listened to while I’m in full “no disturbing me so that I can get some serious looming done” mode.

This is the 2nd time I’ve worked my way through this hefty novel.  The first was an actual book held in my hands, and the 2nd I purchased in digital format because I thought that this would be the perfect kind of book to listen to in an English accent, lol.

I was right…it’s wonderfully engaging!  Love this story! 🙂

Just before this one, I finished another Audible selection (and another of my absolute all time favorites) Jane Eyre.  I just can’t get enough of the classics!

Bathroom: (hehehe…you know I couldn’t leave that one out, lol!)

This one sits by the bath for leisurely reading when I can grab the chance.

Lorna Doone is one of my all time favorite books.

It has absolutely everything going for it:  adventure, history, romance, suspense, mystery, intrigue… you name it, it’s got it!

Love it, Love it, Love it!

This is a fun read that is strategically placed by my assortment of home decorator magazines and catalogs…*ahem* 😉

My dad picked this up at garage sale and I recently inherited it.  It’s been pretty entertaining to read in little snippets.  It’s a very humorous and tongue in cheek tableau of what it was like moving from the big city to the newly invented “suburbs”  back in the 40’s and 50’s.  Nothing deep~ just pure comedy.

Well…besides the random books that cross under my eyes occasionally, and magazines that are delivered to my doorstep, that’s just about it for now.  Of course I have a whole stack of books upstairs and orders on hold from the library, all just waiting their turn in the great line up of random reading resources.

I can’t wait to dive in! 🙂

    What a fun post 🙂 I am definitely going to have to check out that first book. Had a giggle over the title for that last book, lol.

    Hugs!

    I need that Mr. Norrel in my iPod I have the actual book but it would be great to listen to it 🙂

    I think you should, Isela. I started to read my own hard copy, but just couldn’t settle down enough to enjoy it to it’s maximum as I did the first time through…as you know it’s not really a light read. But it’s excellent when someone else is reading it for you, lol! The recording from Audible is very well done. 🙂

    Jenny…the first book is going great so far! I’m really enjoying this fourth in the series. 🙂 When I was searching the link to share, I even found an official online game to play where you have to solve clues to find the “Codex”! Pretty cool…

    The last has some really quite funny bits in it, as is noted by the title, lol. 🙂
