I rarely buy magazines, more like – I never buy magazines. For some reason I’ve bought 3 recently. I found all of these enjoyable and had to stitch my 2 favorite ornaments right away!
I’ve also finished two books. One of them I loved and the other I didn’t like at all. I highly, like right up there with The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, recommend The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I haven’t enjoyed a book so much in a long while and I look forward to reading more of her books.
On the other hand, I’m sorry I took the time to read the other book. I was planning to read 2 books by this author for the Everything Austen Challenge II, I will not be reading the other one. Aside from not enjoying the story and disliking the main character very much, I don’t like the ‘f’ word in books I read, movies I watch, music I hear, or any other place else you can think of, it honestly jars my senses. I seriously thought about tossing this book in the trash the first time I came across the word – I wish I had. Because it is impossible for me not to feel like a horrible meanie writing this, I will gladly tell you that the author says some very good things about the pleasure of doing needlework.
Not sure what I’ll read next (aside from the history books I always have going) I’m listening to the first book in the Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter by Susan Wittig Albert, enjoyable so far in a mindless sort of way. I’m hoping to pick up The House at Riverton (Kate Morton) if I can find time to stop at Borders. If you are over at Goodreads I try to keep my reading shelves updated and I’d love to connect with you there.
