Pass, Fail, Promise: Urban Fantasy Edition

I have been doing a TON of reading. Seriously. I think I've finished 4-5 books since Saturday, and I'm working on three more. Right now I'm on a huge Urban Fantasy kick. This might be because THE FERRYMEN is coming out in few weeks. Or maybe it's because one of my favorite authors has a… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: Urban Fantasy Edition

Pass, Fail, Promise: World Politics Edition

Pass: In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park and Maryanne Vollers This is the first book in a while to send me into book coma. I finished listening to it, and then had to sit for a couple of hours, processing it. I went into it knowing nothing about Korea ouside of what I've gleaned… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: World Politics Edition

Pass, Fail, Promise: Classic Lit

Pass: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain I think that I must be one of only about five people in the US who didn't have this book for required reading--ever--in all the time I was at school. It's kind of a shame, really, because I like the little I have read of Mark… Continue reading Pass, Fail, Promise: Classic Lit

Quickie Review: The Victorian Internet

I just finished this one over the weekend. I'm really surprised at how quickly I got through it; it's really a very short read (my edition was 217 pages from the start to the afterward, and it's not exactly dense, textbook like reading). I only have two complaints about this book: First, some of the… Continue reading Quickie Review: The Victorian Internet

Well, I'm down to only two more projects--the Kimono Sweater and the Top-down hat. I have about two inches of the rear sweater panel done, and the hat is roughly 1/3 complete. On Thursday, my knit-ease gloves came in. Honestly, I don't recommend them. They work okay, but when I showed them to my mom… Continue reading Random Content

CAP is the reason I got into the blogging community. I can't remember what I Googled, but I was looking up something… Continue reading Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair
