I'm back....for the time being

Well...I discovered how easy it is to travel from Ravelry to my personal blog. Maybe I'll be able to update now and again after all :).


Speaking of traveling - my latest book was about time travel. Time travel is a concept that sci-fi has developed in different ways over many, many years. I've always been a fan of sci-fi, but the more recent books have put me off, so I don't often go there. This latest - "Found" by Margaret Peterson Haddix is actually a teen book, but I have quite enjoyed the twists. It was a very easy read, with very simplistic writing. The premise behind the book, though, (which I will not reveal) was interesting and not one that I have encountered before. Since the book is the first in a series I will have more reading ahead of me.

The other book that I'm reading (on my ipod), is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Here is literature at it's finest. I'm really enjoying this story, which I don't believe I've read before. If I have I don't remember a thing about it. Years ago in elementary school I directed a play written by her sister Emily - Wuthering Heights. For two spinsters who lived in the boonies they sure had some deep thoughts on men and women and their love lives.

Jane Eyre is one of my favourite books of all time. You have got to watch the BBC production of it! Almost as good as the book!

Hey my friend - so glad to see you back on! I have to say I gave up on you and took you off my "friend" list on my blog =( I am SO sorry! I hope you will still be my friend in real life. I have to agree with Aneta - I love Jane Eyre! I have re-read it several times.
