October Reading

I finished A Clash of Kings, the second novel in A Song of Ice and Fire, an epic fantasy series by American author George R. R. Martin.  This series is expected to consist of seven volumes, 5 are out.  Like its predecessor, A Game of Thrones, it won the Locus Award (in 1999) for Best Novel and was nominated for the Nebula Award (also in 1999) for best novel.  Boy is was good and meaty. I put am on the waiting list at my library for the 3rd book. These are long books but so well written that you are disappointed when they end.

I also read the Hour Game by David Baldacci.  This is my 3 book by this author and there is one more he has written with the two main characters.  It was about 760 pages and the first 3rd was a little slow.  Once the pace picked up this book spiraled to warp speed with lots of hair pin twists and turns.  I enjoyed it!

I have been crocheting and finished a scarf for myself.  I also started on a second one as a gift.  I picked up some elastic cording because I want to make a ear muff/ head band thing to match.   I saw my sister in law wear one a few times so I thought she might like one to match the scarf.

I've stitched a little here and there but nothing major, still hunting for my stitching mojo.

  1. In stark contrast with the name, it is a very young brand that replica watches sale competes in the haute horlogerie segment. Their annual production tops off at around 50 high-end watches and they manufacture nearly everything in-house, with the usual exception of the balance spring, jewels and the sapphire crystal. At SalonQP they had a small replica watches sale enamel painter workshop set up by their booth with the intention of demonstrating some of the steps involved in creating astoundingly intricate, but literally ever-lasting dials. Enameling is a very complex process that requires a high level of rolex replica uk expertise. When it comes to creating the base materials and then achieving the desired colors involves what I would refer fake watches to as superhuman skills and dexterity. It is of no surprise then that all intricacies of enamel dial manufacturing cannot be told here - but will rolex replica sale certainly be discussed at length in a separate article.
