i did a little sewing today, but the weather is quite dreary, so no good photos today. however, i saw this over on amanda's blog a little while back and found it entertaining. so, i decided i would post it here today (plus i just have to share a little bit of the book i am reading).
grab the nearest book.
* open the book to page 56.

while we are on the subject of reading, have you checked out good reads? nikki introduced me to it and i am hooked. i love having virtual bookshelves. my favorite is my "to read" shelf. i see books all the time that look interesting, so i come home and enter them in my list and then i can check the my library for them. i love it! i am thinking of starting to post more about some of the books i read. anyone have any book suggestions?
