I'm a big fan of audio books as I can listen while doing other things, but there are many books to read and, anyway, I love holding the "real thing" in my hands from time to time. Lately, the act of reading has taken over my knitting time and getting into a good mystery completely takes over any spare time.
The project on the needles is Susan's Beach Glass (Susan has returned to blogland!), in a very interesting yarn, Anzula Breeze, a silk/linen blend. It's going to be lovely (if it ever has a chance to be finished).
