As I supped my soup for lunch, I finished the first novella in Suite Francaise. I'll wait until I finish the second novella before I give you my review. Already, though, I'd recommend picking this one up, especially if you like character-based fiction. Brilliant.
I haven't just been reading books of late, though. I joined a swap for mini notebooks on Swap-bot, and I had a blast learning how to put a book together. In fact, I was so delighted by the results that on Saturday I picked up some new supplies to supplement a few sheets of paper I'd purchased in Albuquerque when the notion to try this out hit me.
Want to see my first books?
There is a ton for me to learn still, and I can't wait to try different papers and binding techniques. For these I used an excellent tutorial. If you know of any good instructional books or sites, would you let me know?
I've done my Chaucer reading for the week, and I'm prepared for classes for the next few days. I could stay up late and Treadmill, but I think I'll give in to the temptation of snuggling with a good book under freshly laundered sheets.
