I have three books on the go at the moment and another waiting patiently.
I’m plugging away through Charles de Lint’s The Onion Girl. I generally quite fond of de Lint’s stories. I find the characters intriguing and well developed. But I’m having alot of trouble with this one. I just can’t seem to get involved.
The second book is Jasper Fforde’s First Among Sequels. Much like de Lint, Fforde has created a world that at first appears much like our own, but as we delve deeper into the story we realize it’s this wonderful world full of strange characters and even stranger events. I’m trying to pace myself on this one. I’m tempted to sit down and finish in one long sitting. But I’m going to pace myself. Linger over it. Enjoy it.
I like to have some non fiction on the go at all times. Currently I’m picking away at The Canadian Housewife: An Affectionate History by Rosemary Neering. Don’t have much to say about this one yet. Just started a few days ago.
And, as if there aren’t enough books on my night table, I picked up another book at the library today. The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris.
And yet, even with the books on the go, I’ve manage to do a little crafting this week. A co worker and I have spent a few lunch hours this week folding origami flowers for a friend’s Mother Blessing. Tomorrow we’ll be using a hot glue gun to glue the flowers to some sticks. Hopefully it will turn out as an acceptable offering.
