Required Reading Deja Vu!

After I left College I never imagined I'd again embrace "required reading", but I guess I've matured. (Say it isn't so!) But, I'm very happy to have found this group and look forward to discussing 2 of my great loves - reading and knitting. I'm just coming out of a "Potter Exile". Everything in life stopped while I devoured book 6. And I also just finished "Endurance" by Alfred Lansing. Excellent story! I swear I could *taste* the seal blubber while reading the book.

New to the blog and Happy to be here!

Hi there. I'm a newbie to this blog. I'm a 36 yr old married mom of two with 3 dogs and I live in South Florida. I love to read, knit and crochet. My knitting blog is http://esther.countrygirlzine.us

This site is great and I'm loving every minute of surfing around and reading all the entries.

I am currently reading "Time Travelers Wife" and Laurie Notaro's "I Love Everyone (and other atrocious lies)" both are fantastic. I'm really looking forward to participating in this group.

Thanks for having me :-)

Glad to be Here

Hello. My name is Vera. I'm 42 years old, and I live my with husband in Charleston, SC. I knit, crochet, cross stitch and read. Right now, I'm halfway thru with David McCullough's 1776, and I just got Strand of a Thousand Pearls by Dorit Rabinyan and A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews.

I'm always on the lookout for interesting books, and I look forward to participating in this group.

Vera's Crafty Blog is my Knitting/Crocheting Blog.

A belated self-intro

I joined up in late April and have had very little time to spend here ever since! Sorry about that.

I'm a knitter, and I love to read. I live in NYC, the borough of Queens, and escort my 8yo dd every weekday to Manhattan where she attends a public school for musically gifted children. I do a lot of knitting and reading on the subway.

I'm in the middle of reading L. M. Krauss' The Physics of Star Trek and recently finished Cod by Mark Kurlansky. Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife is in my pile of books to read, but alas, I doubt I'll be finished with it by Monday.

I keep a blog/website about my dd here: Kate's Progress
an on-line knitting album here: Patti's Knitting Album
and a knitting and personal blog here: The Dumping Ground

I'm looking forward to participating in discussions and reading new books with you all!

Yet another new member

Joined a couple of weeks ago, but I've been away. I'm a 26 year old knitter in South Jersey. My obsessions happen to be photography, knitting, reading, and writing. I read Time Traveler's when it first came out, so I'm glad to see I finally have others to discuss it with. If you want to drop me a line, then feel free to drop me a line at my knitting blog: knitfix.blogspot.com

and another new member

Hey all! My name is Laura and I'm an 18-year-old knitter from Boston, MA. I am also a HUGE bookworm so this is the perfect place for me! I just finished reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt literally moments ago (funny to see her already mentioned)... I adore erudite New England novels like that.
When I'm not knitting, I'm probably sitting in front of the computer, writing, or watching a film-- I'm a huge movie buff and I hope to be working in the film industry someday.
I just started a knitting/craft blog at http://amused.likeasiren.com. Come visit!

Hi from another new member

Hi everyone, my name is *Kim* and I must say I love my little stars. I love to read and I love to knit, so I guess this will be a good place for me to hang out! I've just finished a book called "How I Paid for College" by Marc Acito. It was hysterical! Next on my list is "The Forsyte Saga". Two of my favorite books from 2004 were "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" and "Shadow of the Wind". I'll stop now and look forward to meeting everyone in the "Jonathan Strange" discussion!
