Today's Books and (Things On and Off the) Hooks.
A quick post-and-run today, as it's beautiful outside and I have a mile long to-do list. Part of which is finishing this relatively small pile of very-green WIPs---feel free to guess what any of them are! Hopefully they'll all be showing up finished on Friday. The two things on the left are actually already done, crocheting wise. So, eek, the dreaded Sewing Bit is upon me, but I can't delay! The blob in the middle is an Easter present, so that will nudge me onward.
In the way of books, I've been slowly making my way through a collection of William Gibson's collected nonfiction (Distrust That Particular Flavor), which is really interesting and thinky-thought provoking. William Gibson is definitely on my (loooong) list of "favourite authors," his talent for creating a sense of place in his novels is awe-inspiring and wonderfully absorbing.
I'm also randomly reading the second Percy Jackson book, which is fluffy good fun. Even though I read the first in the series almost a year ago, Rick Riordan's tone (clever, a little silly in places, very Boy's! Own! Action-packed! Adventure!) feels familiar, which is nice.
Linking up with WIP Wednesdays and Yarnalong.
