Knitting Rules

Knitting Rules!, by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

Another wonderful book by the Yarn Harlot. If you're a knitter who is at all active on-line I'm sure you already know about this book.

Personally, I love Stephanie's writing style. I love visiting her blog and gobbling it all up! This particular book has a lot more practical knitting info than her first two (including the sock recipe!)

That's really just about it for that one. I really like her books in general and can't wait for the next one to come out!


Mindbend, by Robin Cook

I haven't posted any books by Robin Cook before, but I've read a bunch of them. I think I first picked up a handful of them at a used book store and then they sat on my shelf until I felt like a medical mystery!

I know the little date tag is going to say that I read this in August 2006, but I know I read it once before. Unfortunately, I didn't do this on purpose! It took me until about half-way through the book to realize I'd read it before. I tend to think that's not a good thing, that it didn't make enough of an impression on me the first time around that it took me that long to remember it.


Cook reminds me a lot of Grisham (except with doctors instead of lawyers). There's always a big bad conspiracy of some sort, and the one lone good guy who has to stop it all. They're fun to read, but don't really distinguish themselves from each other very easily! This one was all about a brain-washing pharmaceutical company. (wow, Firefox says I spelled that right on the first try!)

Which isn't to say that I don't like his books, I do. They just tend to follow a certain formula.

Deathstalker Coda

Deathstalker Coda, by Simon R. Green

This is the last in the Deathstalker series by Simon R. Green. *sniff*

I've really enjoyed this series and didn't want it to end at all. I don't really have anything to add to what I've said about this series before, just that I'm sad that this is the last one.

Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter

Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter, by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

This is book number 2 by Stephanie and I loved it! It was all I could do to put it down and not read the whole thing in one fell swoop.

This one has lots of stories about knitting, stash, mistakes, family... and all very fun. If you like her blog, you'll like her books. I know I do!
