Books and Reading
When I looked at the pile of books on my window sill in the bedroom and even more on the floor next to my chair in the living room, I realized that I have become significantly in arrears in reading. And also in cataloging the books. Since I am PC based, I am able to take advantage of the lovely program BookCat to keep track of everything. After all, with publishers re-releasing books with new covers, I have saved the original price of the shareware just by avoiding duplicates. And, if I do wind up with duplicates, there is always
Bookcrossing as a means of setting books free to see where they go.
None of this explains why after carefully packing up all the CDs, audio tapes and books that I had finished to be returned to the library, I walked out the door this morning without the bag. When I stopped in, it turns out only one thing is over due. And it is a book that I think one of the kids borrowed, since I was done with it over 2 weeks ago. I have also finished up the 9CDs of The Main Corpse by Diane Mott Davidson.
I have managed a few more rows on my Niagara sock heel and another 40 rows on the ½ circle cardigan. I will do update pictures tomorrow, when it is actually possible to see progress.
Should I mention that I found a nice source of yarn for dyeing on the web? Wollatelier-Schlawin has Sockwolle for €1,75 per 100gm, I will see how it is for quality and then either get more, or move on to one of the other sources available for weborder here in Germany.
Oh, yes. I was at work today and actually managed to get a few things accomplished.
