Hello everyone. Poor Novel Insights has been a little neglected as of late what with a rather manic time at work (I’m starting a new job soon – exciting!) and a recent lovely trip to Holland where, contrary to expectations I read absolutely nothing. Yes – zero books!
For some reason I seem to have lost my reading mojo a little (I’m blaming it on The Hare with the Amber Eyes, which I’m reading for my Riverside Readers book group and is very well written but I’m finding rather a slow read).
Actually I had rather a nice time not-reading. Sometimes, it is nice to zone-out and switch your brain to other things – rubbish telly, pottering about, eating lots, art galleries, enjoying lots of Dutch beer and cheese (yum). Since I’ve come back I’ve also nearly finished the cardigan I started knitting in June.
This is super exciting as it’s my first real, proper big item of clothing and I think I’ve done quite a good job if I do say so myself. Here it is in abstract. I have only a couple of pockets and a button to add and then I’ll do the big reveal (I bet you’re on the edge of your seat… :))
Oh, and it was my birthday on the 25th August. Only one year before the big 30 now!
What have you all been up to? Do you ever lose your reading mojo?
