Eclectic Closet Litblog, Book Reviews & Knitting Designs

A litblog dedicated to book reviews/recommendations, as well as literary and publishing news. Now enhanced with knitting designs.


I’m still working my way through Every Book Its Reader by Nicholas Basbanes (just over halfway through). It’s fascinating but not a speedy read. I’m also working on the bookring book Wasp Factory by Iain Banks which I’m also about halfway through.

I feel I’m reading too slowly right now. It’s January 8 and I haven’t finished a single book yet! I guess that’s what happens when you read books that require a lot of thought.

Also frantically working on finishing the !%^$ sweater for my Grandmother which eats into the reading time. I think I’ve knit the equivalent of three of this sweater now. This is what comes of trying to alter a pattern without really knowing what you are doing. I ripped out both sleeves at Christmas and now I’m about 1/4 of the way done on both. I’ll try to post a picture once I have a chance.
