Monthly Update – November 2009



Update: I pressed the wrong button. This wasn’t ready. Oops.

Better late than never, I suppose. Not that there was much reading and posting of reviews in November. Most of the post where for the A-Z Wednesday event. I still haven’t re-posted everything that was lost back in September, but I’m slowly getting there.

Two DNFs: Marked by Moonlight (Kohler, S.) and Storm Born (Mead, R.). That brings my total for First Book to $118.00.

So, what did I do in November if I wasn’t reading?

Glad you asked. I took up knitting. Loom knitting, to be precise. I’ve joined Ravelry, and gone a bit nuts looking at patterns, yarn, and other niffy stuff (like stitch markers). My ID is pinkcees.

I’ve set up pages on my blog for my projects. An on-line project journal (Ravelry has one, but you have to create an account to see it). So far, only thing listed here is The Mobius Shawl.

The backlogged reviews posted:

  • None

What’s still pending:

  • Skykeepers
  • The Wallflower
  • The Maverick’s Greek Island Mistress
  • Duel of Hearts
  • Line of Scrimmage
  • On the Edge
  • Time Raiders: The Seduction (Cindy Dees)(Nocturne Bite)
  • Kiss of Fate
  • For the Love of Pete
  • Three Bags Full
  • “Falling for Anthony” (Meljean Brook), Hot Spell(anthology)
