I’ve been such a restless reader lately. Fifty pages here, fifty pages there – not liking any book well enough to make the full 300+-page commitment. But then, a couple of nights ago, I picked up this old copy of Norman Mailer’s The Executioner’s Song. It’s a trade paperback – the kind they only rarely make anymore, the kind that would fit in the back pocket of a pair of jeans if it weren’t a thousand pages long, as this one is. Sometimes they were even called “pocket books”; that was sort of a slang term for “paperback.” I’ve read about 90 pages and am enjoying it so far, although of course I know bad things are coming.
On top of the book are the striped sleeves of the two little sweaters I’m making. All that’s left to do is piece them and shape the necks. I hope to finish one of them this weekend.
As always, Yarn Along is hosted by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.
Happy Wednesday – I hope everyone’s having a good week so far!
