Summer Reading

Our local library has a summer reading program for adults.... and since I love to read, its quite perfect actually. Pretty cool when you can win prizes for doing some thing you would have been doing any way. Since I keep track of my reads on the Shelfari bookshelf (to your right) I wont bother listing all my good reads.
For the knitters, I really liked "Casting Off " by Nicole Dickson, " The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club" & " Needles and Pearls" by Gil McNeil , Seaside Knitters Mystery Series by Sally Goldenbaum, last but not least I Love the whole Maggie Sefton knitting mystery series. I have read all the books Ive been able to find with a knitting mystery or story theme and have liked them all so far, but these are my favorite picks for now. Im always finding new ones to add to my reading list. I find them inspiring to my knitting and enjoy reading about the different personalities in each knitting circle. I think its great how the characters come together to share their talents and know how. The knitting store settings are always very cozy and inviting. Makes you want to run out and yarn shop whether you have a WIP going or not. Oh, and I cant forget the patterns and recipes that come in the back of the books. The stories totally endear them to your heart. My next knitting read will soon be "Spinning Forward" by Terri Dulong.

Some other random good reads I have really enjoyed are " The Fixer Upper " by Mary Kay Andrews, & " The Mulberry Tree " by Jude Deveraux.
I could go on and on, but I will spare you all. I just wanted to share my love of reading ...and pass on some titles you might not have been interested in before.

The picture above can be found here:(isnt it great? Its on my wishlist)
