First Winter Classic is a real Chunkster

This cute little stickie was stolen from my friend at Stainless Steel Droppings. When my kids were really little, I used to tell them "Books are your friends" and then finish it off with something like, "so be gentle," or "so take good care of them" or "so put it in a safe spot" or "be kind to them." To this day, they still say, teasingly--"Books are your friends, mom, be kind to them!"

I have been reading The Woman in White, and love this book! I am intrigued by the characters, their motives and am wondering how it will all turn out. But let me tell you, this book is like the never-ending knitted scarf. You know, the one that no matter how much you’ve knitted, you still need to knit more . . . well no matter how often I pick this book up, I can’t seem to get it finished! This isn't something which often happens, so I am a little baffled by my slow pace! While I will finish it before the end of January (fulfilling the selection for KTC), this isn’t boding well for me with the Winter Classics Challenge (1st of 5!).

Hhmmm, no wonder why I haven't been able to take that book out of the library - who ever checked it out first must not be able to finish it either. :( Well, I can relate with my Bejeweled . . . I knit and knit and knit last night, and it barely grew!!
