Constest Winner!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered our latest contest! I have added so many books to my To-Read List; they will be perfect for listening to while I knit this fall.

According to the random number generator, #18 is our winner:


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Quick read for over 500 pages. Set in Nazi Germany and told from Death's perspective. Death narrates this girls life in moments. Interesting narrative character, loved the central figure (the girl, the book thief).A great book,I believe in the dramatic fiction. This is a book many middle school's (7th & 8th grade) are reading.

Congratulations Anna! I'll be emailing you about your prize.

A New Contest!

One of my favorite things to do in the fall, other than knitting of course, is to curl up with a good novel. I've even gotten into the habit of listening to audiobooks so that I can knit at the same time! The book that I most recently finished was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, a Swedish murder mystery. The story kept me entertained as I dyed yarn and it was really interesting to listen to a contemporary novel that was originally written in a language other than English, for a non-English speaking audience. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.

Now for our contest. All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post (please include your name or email address so we know who you are!) telling us about a book that you recently read and would recommend to others. Let us know what genre it falls into (romance, murder mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, etc) and at least one reason you enjoyed it. Make sure to get your entry in by Sept 22nd and on the 23rd we will randomly select a winner!
