I discovered a new author to read!
I am like the book Where’s Waldo? I have been busy this week with housework, making hobo quilt squares. I was also planting bushes for butterflies going to coffee with a neighbor and today going to Oktoberfest with my cousin. The Oktoberfest in La Mesa was pretty boring it looked like one big commercial booth one after another. Plus we were there early so there was no music . We quickly saw all the booths and then we went to lunch. We weren't done yet after that we stopped at Barnes and noble and drove up this huge hill to look at model homes for fun! Not my style but interesting to see how they're decorated.
.But I had a great discovery this week I found an author that I love!
Laurie R. King and the book The Beekeepers apprentice
I have always loved reading. I think if you’re a reader you can transport yourself to a million places expand your knowledge and experience people’s lives quite different then your own. I am so happy and thankful that I love to read so when I found an author that combined my favorite detective Sherlock Holmes and a new take on his life I was intriqued. Mary Russell is a young apprentice girl of fifteen who becomes Sherlock Holmes Watson. This book has been around for a while but I started reading it and I am mesmerized how someone can write such an interesting tale. The best part it’s a series so I can go back for more Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell. There is nothing more satisfying then picking up a book at a library or bookstore and it grabbing your full attention from the very beginning. I propose that there are different types of readers in the world. Readers that read a couple of chapters don’t enjoy the book but finish it anyhow because they started it. Or readers that by the second chapter are bored to death can't quite get into the story so toss it to the side and don’t waste their time. That would be me unfortunately.I wonder if I missing out on some great book because of my way of reading? Have you ever read a book that was slow to start and you were glad you didn't give up on the storyline?
I took some photos of my Hobo Quilts I have been working on and some JoAnn stitcheries I did last year. I have to find a place to hang them. I am running out of walls. Lol
