Ten on Tuesday

Summer Reading..

hmmmmm.. I don't usually do the Ten on Tuesday lists.  I enjoy reading them, just never signed on.  However, today I find myself on the slowest dial up connection probably left in this country (at least the third world has wireless), plus I really like the topic.  ahh.. Summer Reading.  The first four on my summer list are finished.  I enjoyed them and wish that I could start fresh and do it again.  The next group are on order from the library.  It is convenient to go online, even with the dial up from hell and order the books I want to read.   Generally these aren't the kind of books I need to keep on my shelf after I've enjoyed them.  Easy come, easy go.  

1. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,  Steig Larrson

2. The Girl Who Played With FireStieg Larsson

3. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's NestStieg Larsson 

4. Mistress of the Art of Death, Ariana Franklin

5. City of Shadows, Ariana Franklin

6. The Serpent's Tale, Ariana Franklin

(there are more in this series.. I'll see if I want to go on from there.)

7. Tales of the City, Armistead Maupin

8. The Night Listener, Armistead Maupin

9. In Search of Fatima, Ghada Karmi

10. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Seth Graham-Smith

Not a heavy one in the bunch.  This is summer entertainment, easy to pick up, and hopefully, not so easy to put down.  I tend to read all the books in a series when I can.  Then on to the next.  Both Franklin and Maupin have at least five books in the series.  I'll give them the first two to see if I'm interested.  What are you reading??


Another little project

Cedar Leaf



Lately, it has been one shawl after another. I love knitting them. When they're done, they're done. If they can be knit with one skein, all the better. This little piece, the Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana Dakos, caught my eye. I am a sucker for anything with leaves. It'll probably be more of a scarf for me. Wouldn't it be cute in several colors wrapped up together...
