Books, Books, & More Books

Our partial hardback and paperback collection of the Mitch Rapp Series.

I have finished the eighteenth book in the Brother Cadfael Chronicles, “The Summer of the Danes” and I’m ready to begin the next in the series, “The Holy Thief” as soon as my Kobo is recharged. There are a total of twenty books, the last being “Brother Cadfael’s Penance” so I am inclined to take my time with the last two and enjoy them at my leisure.

It is so easy for me to lose track of time and read chapter after chapter until I suddenly find I am on the last page. And I do love a good series! I now own the entire collections of “The Cat Who” books by Lillian Jackson Braun, the “Mitch Rapp” series by Vince Flynn and continued by Kyle Mills, “The Brother Cadfael Chronicles” by Ellis Peters, all of these on my e-reader.

In addition I have the whole series of Mageworlds by Debra Doyle & James D MacDonald in paperback. At one time I had the complete collection of “The Dragonriders of Pern” by Anne McCaffrey on my old Kindle but those wouldn’t transfer over to my Kobo e-reader so I may begin to collect them again if they are listed with Rakuten. I’ll check that out later.

I’ve still got two books by Mark Levin to read and I haven’t finished Allen West’s book on Texas, but I’m almost forty percent into it. The only other books on my Kobo are copies of The Bible and a couple of Catholic prayer books as far as I can recall without looking at my list on the Rakuten Kobo website.

I just remembered that I have the complete collection of the “The Cat Who” books in paperback that I’m planning on giving to our grand-daughter Sarah. That would make a nice belated birthday gift for her come to think of it.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
