It's my birthday on Sunday, so time to roll out a birthday competition.
However, I'm going to stray away from knitting for this one.
This week I have read a book. Not really that amazing you might say, but I realised it is only the second book I've read all year. I used to devour at least one book a week when I lived in London. I started knitting on the way to work because I was buying far too many books (the library was never open when I was home). Then I moved house and the library was next door and I went a bit more often. Since I moved back to Wolverhampton I've hardly read anything, too busy knitting on the train and the bus. I've been to Central Library in Brum a few times, but never found my way to the fiction section. On Monday "The Kite Runner" practically jumped off the shelf into my hand. It's a book I've wanted to read for ages, it was on 7 day loan, so I knew I had to start straight away. I finished it at lunchtime today. I cried on the bus this morning reading it, I stayed up far far far too late last night reading it. So, if you haven't read it, I thoroughly recommend it.
So now to the competition... That book has put me right back in reading mood. What should I read next? The only other book I've read this year is "On Chesil beach" Ian McEwan. My book reading list at the moment consists of only "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger.
Now for a prize, I'll stick to knitting for this one.
You can choose from either 2 skeins of Natural Dye Studio Merino sock wool.
Leave me a comment on this post and tell me what books you've enjoyed recently and what you think is should read next. I'll put all the commenters in a hat and draw out a winner next Wednesday at about 9.30pm.
