It has been quite a productive week. I am quite proud of all that I have been able to accomplish. First, I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. I really enjoyed the Millennium trilogy, and wish the author had other works. The books read very fast, and I found them difficult to put down. I really like that in my reading these days. I need books that I can start and stop due to the demands of my every day. The characters are well defined, and the story had great twists and turns. The series does, however, have quite a bit of violence. With the completion of this book, I am resuming Freedom. I have 100 pages to read, and then I can call that one done! I am also finishing Ape House by Sara Gruen. I read and enjoyed Water for Elephant, so I am eager to finish her newest book.
One other book has entered my mix. Our family usually has one family friendly book going which we enjoy together. We recently listened to Little House on the Prairie on audiobook together. This week, with a recommendation from Ginny via the Yarn Along, the kids and I are reading Three Tales of My Father's Dragon. It is a wonderful read aloud, and we are all enjoying it. We have finished two of the three stories.
My second big accomplishment this week is my sweater. I finally finished it! Woot woot!!! I am so happy to be done. With the delay in this week's yarn along, I had just the extra time I needed to bind off. I still have some ends to weave in and it will need a good blocking, but I am done! I have now knit myself a sweater. I like how it fits and look forward to next winter and cooler temperatures. Today's forecast is for 88 degrees!
