Since my last update:
I finished Threat Warning by John Gilstrap. Both The Hubster and I enjoy this series. I’ll be featuring the series during the upcoming Heroes and Villains Crime Fiction Theme Week coming up April 16-20. It’s hosted by the Amazing Jen from Jen’s Book Thoughts and if you’re a crime fiction fan you need to be keeping up with her and the plans for the theme week.
I finally got around to reading The Giver by Lois Lowry which has been languishing on my TBR list for years. I was a little worried because SO MANY people love this book but I was pleasantly surprised and liked it quite a bit.
I’ve started the 4th book in the Lincoln Perry series by Michael Koryta. It’s called The Silent Hour and it’s very good so far. Some of the suspense elements that he does so well in his standalone books are clearly evident in this one.
On audio, I’m on the last cd of Dog Tags by David Rosenfelt. I’ll finish it up next week.
This weekend we’re on a road trip so our audiobook we’re listening to together is Lottery by Patricia Wood. I’ve already read it in print and loved it. I’ve heard that the audio version is good so I have it loaded on the ipod for our drive time. The Hubster hasn’t read it so I think I’m going to get his input as a first timer with the book when I do the post about the audio edition. I think I scared him when I told him I was going to interview him for the blog post but he’ll come around.
Other than books and reading:
I’m having fun with the April Photo a Day challenge (check them out at Whimpulsiveness). I happy to see several of my friends both online and in person are joining in on this.
I rewarded myself for surviving a stressful week by stopping at my little local yarn shop yesterday afternoon and signing up for a couple of classes.
These are the things I’ll be attempting to make:
Scoop neck tee
Lacy Sample Scarf
Checking the iphone photos for the week:
My brother gave me a rose for my birthday last week and it was one that opened up just beautifully. I clearly need to take more photos of flowers with my iphone. This one is worth clicking on to view the bigger image.
And I can’t leave you without the gratuitous Abby photo of the week.
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
