I *heart* Books

I love surrounding myself with books and magazines especially, when I’m not feeling well. Yesterday, I went on a book-buying binge and came home with quite a haul which included (but  not limited to ;-)):

  • Many Masters, Many Lives” by Brian Weiss, MD  (Recommended by a friend.  I’m already several chapters in–it’s really interesting!)
  • Triptych“, by Karin Slaughter (I’m a sucker for a good detective thriller.  Hopefully this is one of ’em)
  • A Witch of Portobello“, by Paulo Coelho (A red-head with dreads & the word “witch” in the title= I’m in!)
  • My So-Called Punk“, by Matt Diehl (Picked this one up for Dave because it features some of his fave bands)
  • 50 Years of Movie Posters“, compiled by John Kobal (A total, vintage score from Half Price Books)
  • The current issues of BUST, Interweave Knits and Knit ‘n Style Magazines.
I spent a lovely, self-imposed afternoon off; on the couch perusing through my book heaven. 
Speaking of Knit ‘n Style, they were kind enough to give my book, Knit Aid a really nice review.  Yay!

My last word on books today (well at least on this blog–i reserve the right to be able to bring them up again on Twitter), is a reminder about the Austin launch party for Jennifer Perkins’ debut of “Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry“.  She’ll be at Craft-o-Rama from 3-5, signing copies, passing out cupcakes, and generally celebrating.  Hope to see you there!
