I get leads on good reads from friends, buzz on bestseller lists, and trolling around Barnes & Noble (my favorite bookstore). My current reserve list is heavy on chick lit, but - I'm a chick.
The forgotten garden : a novel / Morton, KateSince the DeKalb Library system isn't keen on investing in knitting books, that particular list gets tucked into my knitting bag for the next Atlanta Knitting Guild meeting. Their borrowed books library is generous and very helpful for budget-conscious stash and pattern building.
The girl with the dragon tattoo / Larsson, Stieg
Knit the season : a Friday Night Knitting Club book / Kate Jacobs
Sarah's key . . . Tatiana de Rosnay
U is for undertow / Sue Grafton
Hardball / Sara Paretsky
Have a little faith [a true story] / Mitch Albom
Half broke horses : a true-life novel / Jeannette Walls
The help Kathryn Stockett
The weight of silence / Heather Gudenkauf
Her fearful symmetry : a novel / Audrey Niffenegger
More audiobooks are hitting my reserve list now that I've discovered how very pleasant it is to listen to a story while I'm knitting. (And driving long distances.) If the Dunwoody Library doesn't have it, I can always download a must read on my Ipod. I'm slow to embrace technology, but I do get there eventually.
It's raining outside (yet again), my Preschool Phonics class is prepped and ready for tomorrow, and I have some reading and knitting to enjoy.
