A finished book...Not a sewing post

Finishing a book is like loosing a friend.  Anyone else feel like that? 
I love to read.  I read good books, classic books, a few nothing books.  But I have always loved reading.  My mother, I think, is the source for this.  She instilled this passion for reading.  Somehow I learned to fall in love with characters and stories - when I read it is like traveling to another time and place. 
Once I learned that I could enjoy a book and accomplish something (i.e. knitting, sewing, cooking, etc) at the same time by listening to an audio book - I became hooked.  I get almost every audio book I have ever listen to from - if you haven't checked them out, you should. 
I even associate my quilts with books...I'm working on one right now for my sister-in-law (I'll post about it next week).  In the future, I will always think of Harry Potter when I see it. 
Apparently I have read the books, or listened to Jim Dale read them to me, almost every year for the last 5 years (probably more...but I don't want to do the math and think I'm crazy or something).  I listened to all 7 books on audio, starting in October 2013 and now that I'm done I feel like there is something missing from my life.  Sad, right?  *sigh 
Books are the best.

Got anything good for me to read/listen to?

  1. Finishing a book can be difficult to deal with :) I love reading, but I'm a slow reader, and since having kids I've had even less time for reading. Audio books sound like a good idea.

  2. Just found your blog through another blog! Lovely projects! I too like audio books -- although I read more books the regular way -- especially while sewing, cooking, or cleaning. I would recommend The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater as an excellent audiobook! Probably the best of all the ones I've listened to.
