just read Thud! by T Pratchett.

also, tried the Hormone reset Diet, which seems to involve not eating lots of normal foods, and replacing them with all kinds of expensive supplements. Granted, I just skimmed quickly, and tossed it aside.

also skimmed The One-Minute Manager. which was written like we're all five. Tossed that aside.

came home from the library with a cook book, of all things. I'm willing to try some recipes involving sorghum, if I can find it anywhere.

and now, I'm reading Everything I learned by Heart. which I think will turn into a nice little romance.

I never know what I want to read, so I roam the stacks, and pull things out at random. makes for some interesting reads. and lots that I return the next day.

I haven't read Steinbeck in decades!

"Defarge Does Shakespeare"... because I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of it from Heather Ordover of Cooperative Press (and had it signed by her and Elizabeth Green-Musselman of Dark Matter Knits)... but it's also a great read. Some very funny backstories on the designers, their inspirations, their failures, their connections to literature... plus all the great patterns.

Just finished a pretty good thriller:
Carved In Darkness, by Meagan Beaumont.

waiting for me at the library:
The complete photo guide to Crochet!!!! (Really looking forward to this one.,, will report back if its useful or not.)

also coming to the library for me:

Kyoto Gardens, Masterworks of the Japanese Gardeners Art.

I've decided that my balcony garden needs a water feature, so this may inspire me.

So, it looks like this thread was started a while ago. I'm new. I'm learning. And..I love to read. I just finished The Silkworm, by Robert Galbraith(?), J.K. Rowling. No Harry Potter here. And, am currently reading Caught by Harlan Coben. He is my new favorite author.
