Reading binge

Yes, I am a binger! Once I get on a certain path, I tend to stay there. Since Friday, my binge has been reading, and I've read some good ones!

The first book, Tears of Amber by Sofia Segovia, came up as an Amazon offer. I needed to give my wrist a break (too much tatting), so I decided to give it a try. Many of the books I download for free  get deleted by the end of the third chapter, but not this one! I couldn't put it down. 

The last time my sister was down, she said that when she finds a book she likes, she tends to read all of the books she can by that author. I'm not like that. Every once in a while I find a series that I like, but most of the time I want to move on to something different. This time I chose to stick with the same author, and I'm glad I did!

Sunday, I started The Murmur of Bees by Sofia Segovia. Again, I couldn't put it down. Yesterday, I forgot to put my tatting in my bag, so I spent the day reading. I can hardly believe I finished two books by the same author in four days! 

Today my tatting bag is packed. My wrist is well rested. I'll be proctoring SAT exams today, so I'll have plenty of time to tat... or read my newest book, The Castilians: A story of the siege of St. Andrews Castle by V. E. H. Masters.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what today brings!


  1. Enjoy your reading! I believe that breaks from anything are good including tatting!! ;)

    1. My problem with reading, just like tatting, is that I don't know when to stop! ;-)

  2. Reading can be very addictive :) It's nice that you have time to read or tat while the students are taking their exams. I bet they wish they were in your spot!

    1. It sure can be! When I get caught up in a good book, the day just disappears!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
