(My apologies for a less than stellar photo; we're in the middle of a Nor'easter
and won't see the sun until Friday.)
Audiobook: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I'm only about halfway through, but this is quite possibly one of the best books I've ever read, the perfect combination of a fascinating story, incredibly well-told and beautifully written. I'm listening to it in audio form; the photo above shows the print copy I bought to give as a Christmas gift. It's such an extraordinary book I'm tempted to give it to everyone on my list!
Print Reading: Longbourn by Jo Baker. I haven't had much time for print reading so I'm progressing slowly with this one. It's told from the viewpoint of the servants and domestic staff at the Bennet's estate, Longbourn, from Pride and Prejudice. I'm enjoying the realism of scrubbing petticoats and chilblains without the romantic swooning over Mr. Darcy.
Knitting: O Christmas Scarf, O Christmas Scarf! and Blue Lobster Waffles are both gift knitting. I don't knit very many Christmas gifts, but these were specifically requested. I feel grateful that family members value my knitting enough to ask for it!
