what I'm reading...

The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas
I got this for Christmas last year, and I'm just now finishing it (embarrassed grin). It's hard to get into, but I'm really liking it now, especially since I discovered my copy has a character list (this comes in handy since each character has about 2 different names and a handful of titles).

Craft, Inc., Mateo Ilasco
This is one of the myriad crafting/business books I checked out at the library recently. I haven't read much of it yet, but the cover's really cool :).

24 Favorite One Act Plays, edited by Bennet Cerf and Van H. Cartmell
I love short stories, and a one act play is like the short story of the theatre world. Plus, this collection features the likes of Oscar Wilde, Arthur Miller, and Anton Chekhov. Need I say more?

Crafting a Business, Kathie Fitzgerald
I love this book. The bulk of it is interviews with women who run businesses centered around their craft-related interests, and it's so interesting and encouraging to read their stories. If you just check out one of these books, make it this one.

The fact that almost all of these books have library stickers on them shows how much of a library nerd I am. Or just that I'm very cheap.

What are you reading?

I just finished Couldn't Keep it to Myself (book club) & When Christ Comes (bible study). Now I'm starting on Unveiling Mary Magdalene!

I L-O-V-E the library!

Oh trust me, all my books are also from the library, I just like to think of it as financially responsible ;)
