The Books of 2019

There is some good in the world and it’s worth fighting for. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien Two Towers

Remember my book challenge for 2019? My goal was to read 20 books last year. I came so close with 19 in total. It’s looking like my vacations this year could be house bound so I decided to up this year’s goal to 25. According to GoodReads, I’m already 5 books behind! Eek. Foolishly, I took most of my unread and overdue books back to the library right before they closed, but I think we have enough unread books in the house for the next several months.

Here’s the books of 2019 in no particular order:

  • A Winter Kill
  • Rusty Nail
  • Three Women
  • Jaws
  • A History of the World in 6 Glasses
  • Something Read, Something Dead
  • The Alchemist
  • The Coddling of an American Mind
  • The Giver
  • A Scandal in Scarlet
  • Warlight
  • The Spook in the Stacks
  • The Boat Runner
  • Alice Isn’t Dead
  • The Glass Bead Game
  • Bloody Mary
  • Body on Baker’s Street
  • Outliers
  • The Cat of the Baskervilles

I would probably get more reading done if I didn’t keep casting on new projects, but isn’t that why they made audio books? This brings my total to 14 projects for MM20. It does feel a bit like I’m cheating with dishcloths, but I had to try out the new cotton base, right?

  • Malabrigo Delight – I’m using Impatient Pink and Summertime in Verano to make Delightful Dishcloth. I used the two tail method using both yarns to cast on. It made a rather interesting stripe. This is part of a set for a new mom.
  • Woven Spiderman – The British Hubby didn’t have any cast on’s for him so he’s getting a new hat. The pattern is Jacinta with Mechita in Granada.
  • Dewberry After Dark – I’ve wanted to knit this robe for over a decade, but could never find just the right yarn. And it wouldn’t be Malabrigo March if I didn’t cast on something in Dewberry. The pattern is After-Dark Robe.
Here’s part of the gift set. I had the hat in my gift box on reserve.
