Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

52 Books in 52 Weeks in 2009

Ok, so I'm a little late to the game... but I found this group, 52 Books in 52 Weeks, on Ravelry and joined. You challenge yourself to read 52 books in 52 weeks in 2009.

So that's about a book a week. I should be able to do that! My problem is reading and knitting at the same time. I haven't quite mastered that yet. But I did find out that books on CDs count! woohoo!! I can knit during the day and listen to a book. And then, I can read a book at night! Sounds like some good time management to me.

So my plan is to link this post to a picture on the sidebar and update it with the books I've read each month. So check back later to see how I'm doing.

You're off to a great start! I could never join this, I would fail miserably. I do like audio books while knitting. I'm currently listening to LOTR3, 16 CDs, at about 1.5 hrs per disc (I think), really no way I could finish that in one week. LOTR1 was 16 CDs, LOTR2 was 14 CDs. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell was 26 CDs. Maybe I need to choose shorter books, lol.
