This is more reading that I’d planned or expected, and I believe it all happened because:
- I tend to take a hiatus from knitting in the summer.
- Our internet was messed up a lot this summer, and I gave up trying to connect to Netflix
- No knitting or Netflix? Then I’m reading!
- The Lake House – Kate Morton (personally recommended to me by Anne Bogel!)
- Crazy Rich Asians – Kevin Kwan – a whole lot of fun
- Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption – Bryan Stevenson – If you’re a person, you should read this book.
- The Paris Wife – Paula McLain- I’m still thinking about this one.
