Books, Books, Books

Flo tagged me so here goes…

My currently reading list:

  • Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby
  • Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  • Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • Political Visions & Illusions: A Survey and Christian Critique of Contemporary Ideologies by David T. Koyzis

Total number of books in my library:

  • I’ve never actually counted – a couple hundred I expect

Last book finished:

  • Persuasion by Jane Austen

Last book bought:

  • Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby

5 Meaningful books:

  • The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis (first books I ever read on my own as a child, still re-read them every year during Lent)
  • Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard
  • Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  • Collected Plays of Shakespeare
  • Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle

5 Favorite Books (in addition to the ones above obviously):

  • Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
  • The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien

I really need to add books by ISBNs to my library over on LibraryThing.com. So much easier than scrolling through pages of editions.

Edited to add Netflix: Jeeves and Wooster: Season 2: Disc 2 & Dexter: Season 1: Disc1

  1. I bought some beautiful blue silk laceweight from Blue Moon in Thraven. Now all I want to do is cast on the Willow Leaf shawl from Victorian Lace Today. Is this wrong?
    I think this is the meme I should be tagged on.

  2. My coupon was only for 1 skein . . . but the two skeins I ended up buying were the same price though radically different yarns: one lace weight, one worsted (but classified as a sock yarn). One of them is for you, but I’ll not say which!
