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.

As you know I am an avid reader.
challenge is going well.  I have read 97 books so far this year.  So my personal goal of 104 books for the year is in sight.  I may even surpass it!!

While surfing around other book blogs on Teaser Tuesdays (where I always find new books to try!), I found a new blog, Pudgy Penguin Perusals.  She was having a drawing for a mystery book (one of my favorite type of books).  Guess what?!   
I won!!  Yep, soon I’ll be reading, “Tempest in the Tea Leaves” by Kari Lee Townsend.  I can’t wait.  I’ll be reading about a tea leave reading psychic.

So you would think all this reading would interfere with my knitting.  You could be right.  But I try to balance it out by listening to books on tape while I knit.  And I always read for a little bit at bed time (which sometimes turns into late night! lol)

    But for now, I think it’s time to get some knitting done.

I just downloaded this book to my Kindle. I clicked over to the link and the "gotcha" got me! Love your book posts!

Congratulations on your win! Way to go on being so close to reaching your goal too. It won't take you much longer to get there now, I bet.

Congrats on your win from Kaye's blog--that was one I really wanted to read, too. Enjoy!

Congrats also on doing so well in your reading goal for the year. So far I'm 64/100 in my goal for the year (with two more almost done). I was five books ahead of my goal last week, but reading Dracula really killed that. Need to make up for lost time! *g*
