September Is . . .

Read a New Book Month . . . 

I hardly read at all any more, even though it is something I really love to do. The problem is that I can’t read and quilt at the same time, and I love quilting more than reading!

My oldest daughter has always been a bookworm and loves to read like I do, and when she lived at home, we would pick a book together, and she would read aloud to me as I quilted — how sweet is that!?!?! But, alas, she’s all grown and gone and busy being a doctor now, so it’s up to me to read to myself. I tried books on tape at one time, but they never seemed to have the ones on tape that I wanted to read. I haven’t perused the latest choices of books on CD or audio books that you can download and listen to. I don’t own an iPod, so that option is out.

So . . . if I want to read something, I guess I’m gonna have to buck up and do it the old-fashioned way — actually sit down with a real book in my very own two hands and read it. The book I’ve been most wanting to read lately is not a new book — it came out in 2007, but I still haven’t read it yet. It’s this one:


My sister bought it, read it, and then loaned it to me, and it’s been sitting on my shelf ever since. But in honor of Read a New Book Month, I’m going to get it out, dust it off, and try to get it finished. I offer the same challenge to all of you. Leave me a comment and let me know: What book will you read this month?

  1. I have read this book and it is great! Do not delay!

    I too have read far fewer books than I normally do in the summer. I have given my sewing machine a real workout though.

    On the plus side, I have 13 projects to submit to the local county fair.

  2. I have never been much of a reader either. Like you, I would much rather be “doing” something!

  3. I listened to this book on my ipod and loved it. Gives a whole different view of Rhett Butler.

  4. My daughter read this post and thought that reading to you while you were quilting was a terrific idea. So I asked her if she would do it for me. I got the patented blank 10 y.o. stare. So I guess I won’t be having any books read to me.

  5. […] I’ve been reading . . . I’m at least 1/4 done with the book I chose to read. […]
