It’s time for the 12th update on my 101 in 1001 Challenge! If you haven’t been following along on this journey so far or have any questions about what the challenge is, you can check out this link for details. It's June! Officially summertime in the Northern Hemisphere. I'm not sure I'm entirely happy about that, but there you are.
First off, I have been catching up on reviews. I think I've finished all of them now (until I finish another book). I finished my review of NPH's Choose Your Own Autobiography, which can be found here. I also wrote my review of Drew Hayes' NPCs, which is here. My review of Down Among the Sticks… Continue reading Friday Reads ~ in which I play catch-up
There has been knitting this week, yay! I've been working on both the 22 Leaves Shawl and the Hyrule socks.

I can read novellas or short stories quite happily on my Kindle app.… Continue reading Friday Reads ~ in which I have ebook novel issues
I didn't knit this week. I know, that sounds unrealistic. But really, I didn't. Last week (after my WIP Weds post of last week) I read on my lunch breaks instead of knitting. (And for once I didn't do both at the same time.) Then I went to a baseball game with my dad on… Continue reading WIP Weds ~ in which I don’t knit
I wasn't going to post anything today, since yesterday was Father's Day and so I didn't make the time in yesterday's schedule to write a Misc Monday post the day before like I usually do. (Holidays and such will throw wrenches in blog posting schedules. You know.) And then I visited some of my blogroll… Continue reading Misc Monday ~ in which Seanan McGuire is awesome
