Books and Dr. Who

Sunday, June 22, 2014
Listening to audio books is a great way to pass the time while working repetitive tasks, like crocheting endless rows of the same pattern. They're also great to listen to while cleaning house, long car trips and going to the gym, making boring tasks much, much more interesting!

I recently finished a crochet version of the fourth Dr. Who, pattern by Allison Hoffman. The doll was a gift for my dad since he was the one who introduced me to Tom Baker's Doctor, and the first time I remember seeing the show. The scarf colors aren't exactly accurate, but it was the best I could do in the time frame/resources I gave myself:

Books


While working on this project I listened to "NOS4A2"*, by Joe Hill. This is the second book by Joe Hill that I've read and they are very creepy. The local, familiar, New England settings definitely add to the creepy factor.

Since I'm probably going to start including book posts more often in the future, there's one book I read over a year ago that I really wanted to recommend before I start only talking about new ones: "Wool" (Silo Saga)*, by Hugh Howey. I picked it up on a recommendation and didn't know anything about it when I started, then found the mystery of the situation kept me reading to find out "what happened?". Now when I read blurbs of the story, I'm not sure if the descriptions would have made me eager to read it and I'm glad that I didn't have that distraction. Would love to hear what you think if you read it.

You can find me on goodreads.com if you'd like to share book lists.
