a good read.

I love to knit, but sometimes find it eats into my reading time, big time! does anyone else have this problem?

In May, Nick and I are traveling to visit family and friends on the east coast. I am really excited to visit my "home" and also looking forward to the quiet, downtime our 6 hour flight has to offer. Usually, I bring some knitting, but this time I am thinking of just bringing a good book to read, since it feels like it's been months (oh, wait it has been!) since I actually finished reading one. I've been knitting so much lately that I haven't given any attention to the list of books I want to read... it keep growing and growing! Here are some of the titles I am considering for the plane. I thought I'd share with pictures:

This book is sooo good! I am already about 1/3 a way through and hopefully will be done by the time we leave, but it's not entirely likely!

I have heard only good things about this book, and would love to sit down and devote 6 solid hours to it in the air!

Last fall I read On Chesel Beach and enjoyed it, despite it's odd reviews. This would also make a nice airplane read.


I always love Murakami's mix of sci-fi, fantasy and magical realism, set against a dreamy yet modern Japan.

I've been reading bits and pieces of this here and there. Thoughtful, informative and beautifully written, with important stories to tell, I really should focus on reading it all!

Choices, choices!! Any other thoughts or suggestions from you kind readers would be delightful. I miss the the pleasure of a good book as well as the satisfaction of finishing one! What have you been reading lately?

You know I'm going to put my vote in again for Atonement. I really believe that it is one of the greatest novels ever written. It's beautifully written and totally engrossing.

I don't even remember the last time I picked up a book...

Before Knitting, I would read all the time!

Ah, the Eastcoast... I truly miss it...

Have fun!!!

I know what you mean about knitting eating into your reading time.

For me, dinner break at work is reading time, after work is TV/knitting time and days off are sewing time. Darn! No time for cleaning.
