I used to keep my TBR books on their own little section but since it threatened to take over the world, they got slotted into their respective categories, since I tend to read categorically anyway. Or whatever is available/portable/too hard to put down.

No knitting news, other than my stitchmarkers are ready! I'm so excited. Adamas Shawl, here I come. After I finish The Vest. All these FO's are mocking it and I can't have that.

*Who also told me what to google for to learn underlining and strikethroughs. Too cool!

Ah hah! I have fought throught the Fortifications of Technological Incompetence and found your blog! You can't hide from me now! Bwaahaaha!

Read Cryptonomicon. It's one of my favourite books ever.

You can never have too many books. I've probably got around three thousand counting craft books. I counted them a year ago & I was so surprised at how many there were. They are contained - for the most part anyway - on bookshelves so it doesn't seem like that many. At least to me!

Did you see Mim's new shawl she posted today? It's a must knit beauty!

The stitch markers eagerly await the knitting!

Are you planning on reading Life of Pi next month? It's a great book.

What do you have against Donna Tartt and The Secret History? huh?

Just kidding, I've never read it, but it's been recommended to me many times.

Book stores and yarn stores are my two downfalls in life, I swear.

You're very welcome. Hopefully the world is ready for your newfound knowledge. ;)

I love this peek at everyone's bookshelves...

I second Peeve re: Cryptonomicon. I even referenced it in my master's thesis!

I'll have to do this one, although I am embarrassed at the ones I haven't read and the ones I have never heard of.

Interesting. You're the seconed person who doesn't know Cloud Atlas. It's one of those books that catches my eye everytime I go into the bookshop.

I do love your book photo. I lived next door to a lady whose every room was so decorated. ***CV

oh you should check out catcher in the rye...

and the curious incident of the dog in the night-time is excellent too

I think I'm too old for Catcher in the Rye now, Blush. I'd probably want to box his ears.

So is Cloud Atlas any good? I'll have to look it up, I really don't remember ever seeing it. There is no such thing as too many books, but 3000 crafting books alone? You've got me beat.

All Mim's shawls are awesome looking. I'm going to have to stop reading her blog.

Oh no! Peeve has fought through the Fortifications of Technological Incompetence! there's no stopping her now!

you know, it just might've been my TI. Maybe.

This is a great meme! I just did it (and linked back to you) on Tea Leaves. I'm going to take Chitavrtti's advice and look up Cloud Atlas. She's never steered me wrong!
