{summer reading} part iii

funny how i only just started tracking my reading like this in the last three weeks of summer. ;) this week i read steinbeck's of mice and men. don't know how i missed reading that in middle school but in our most recent trip to the bookstore alex made it part of my selection. short book, good read. very touching. i also read jodi picoult's book keeping faith- my 3rd of her books in as many weeks. it was a good read- very unique topic.. a little confusing at times as to who was narrating but still good overall. looking forward to reading a couple other books of hers that i have waiting on my nightstand.

{complete craft}
this is another book i recently purchased: a hardcover coffee table book on sale for $10! the photographs for the tutorials are truly beautiful and there is a really wide range of craft ideas. i can't wait to try some of the ideas myself (in my copious spare time, right?). you can view these scans individually/larger here, here, and here.
