"You'd Better Go Back Inside"

I do have a new FO to show you, but it was necessary to wet block it, and since it has been raining for the past couple of days, the bulky alpaca is taking quite a while to dry. I'm hoping it will finish drying today and that there will be sun tomorrow for a quick photo shoot.

In the meantime, Patty of Fibreholic tagged me for a book reading meme. Since it's an easy one, I can answer it now, even though I still have eight hours of CD's to get through. The task is to open a book you are currently reading to page 161 and copy the fifth sentence on the page.

Page 161, sentence 5 reads:

"You'd better go back inside."

That's scintillating, isn't it? The book is The Kite Runner by Khaled Housseini. Most of it is much more interesting. If you haven't read it, you'll have to take my word for it.

I am supposed to tag five people, so I am tagging:

Melissa of melissaknits
Sophanne of beckyknitstoo
Sarah of bellaknitting
Romi of rosemary-go-round
and
Tammy of tammyknits

If you don't want to play, that's okay. And if I didn't name you and you do want to play, that's okay, too! We're inclusive around here. Besides, I'm hoping for some good book suggestions.

Kite Runner was an amazing book. I just read an excellent book about a town that quarantined itself during the 1918 flu epidemic called, The Last Town on Earth. I forget the author.

I just read Dinner with Anna Karenina by Gloria Goldreich. I really enjoyed it. For lighter fiction, I enjoy Sophie Kinsela and Jane Green.

Sorry, I just had to check out what was the 5th sentence in my book.

"The left side."

It came from Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior. She is funny.

Oh boy! A new FO!!! I can't wait...

I'm probably the only person in the world who hasn't read The Kite Runner yet. I should really get on that.
