I’m not spinning or knitting, I’m …

… READING! Yes, I am not joking! How did this happen you may ask? Well, I originally got a recommendation from Jennie to read the Twilight series a few weeks ago and it’s been on my mind, but not as much as spinning.

I am normally not a reader, but when I do read, that is where my focus is. There are not many books that capture my attention enough for me to not spin or knit though. The Harry Potter books have been the only series which I have read countless times and now I can see the same thing happening with the Twilight series. Seriously. It is so teenyboppery and Buffyesque and yet I cannot put this down. Thank god 4 books have been already written because if I picked this up when only one or two were written, it would drive me nuts.

It has been only 3 or 4 days and I am already a quarter through the 3rd book. Dear lord. I think because it takes place in Washington in towns that I have been to, it makes it all that more alluring.

Spinning will resume shortly. I have the 4th book on order… ;)

You need to listen to books on tape (CD these days) or from itunes- then you can listen and knit or spin at the same time! The Harry Potter series was excellent! I’ve heard about the Twilight series, but am waiting until I have more time to listen to them all at once-

Oh my, this series totally had me sucked in (literally) for a week or two – I loved it – the first book was my favorite! I can’t wait to see the movie- I’m a little embarrassed to admit…

LOL, hehehe I told you it’s super addicting. heheh I also got most of my close coworker friends to give the series a try and they’re all addicted to it too. Now we’re waiting to see the movie so we can compare. :)

Oh yeah, teenyboppery and Buffyesque, and addictive. I took the first book with me on vacation as an ebook, and then downloaded the other three in short notice. They’re the reason I only knit one pair of socks in August…

The first 2 books are sitting on my desk at the moment. I’m a little afraid of being sucked in!

I gobbled up those 4 books in about a week. I tried to pace myself, I really did!

I’d love to hear what you think about the 4th book. There are some interesting opinions on it.

Oh lord, I am surrounded by people reading this series, and now you are, too!? *sigh* I guess I have to give in and start reading it, as well. Everyone must be reading it for a reason :-) Fortuantely my roomie has the whole series, so it’s handy.

Count me in as also addicted. To that. To the Laurell K. Hamilton books too – less teenyboppery but great if you like a strong superwoman type with a high sex drive and a thing for vampires…

What does bockstark mean (pronounced bok-shtark)? My crazy German friend, Matthias, made that word up to mean "really cool" and says that it is catching on in Garmisch. So I am helping him popularize the word! I thought if I ever opened a yarn store, I would call it "Bockstark Yarns". This blog is all about my projects, yarns and crazy ideas related to knitting and other crafts. Contact me at bockstark.knits(at)gmail(dot)com.
