What Dreams May Come

I don’t read very much any more, which is a sad thing. I’ve listened to a few audio books while knitting, but the library doesn’t have the greatest selection, and anyway, it’s not the same as really reading the book. I definitely need to change my ways and get back into reading.

I got a bit of a start on it yesterday, when I read this lovely little story by Mark Twain, reprinted in Harper’s Magazine. It’s called “My Platonic Sweetheart”, and it’s a recollection of his recurring dreams about a girl. Do yourself a favor and set aside a few nice quiet minutes to read it. A cup of tea would be nice.

It even inspired me to drag “The Complete Short Stories of Mark Twain” off my bookshelf.

Edited to fix link. Thanks Stacey!

    Yay! Too bad knitting and reading don’t really go together. Knitting and listening do, though!

    Reading while knitting – it’s the only reason I get ANY knitting done. 🙂

    That was wonderful! Thanks for the link and reference. I taught myself to knit without looking by sitting in front of my computer reading the entire five year back-log of someone’s blog. It was a really fun exercise and by the end I could knit and purl and do 2×2 ribbing.

    Also, do you know about gigapedia? Great for finding books to read on your computer. 🙂

    I am a very good life time reader.
    I have changed to audiobooks for multitude of reasons, the main one I can listen and knit, house work and listen and it goes on. Get a Salt Lake COUNTY library card and join Overdrive. They have a great selection of books that you can download to an MP3 player (no Ipod). I go through at least 3 books a week. Google for Overdrive and search by location you will find the link easier. Email me if you want the links.

    I forgot to mention they have audio books and digital books both can be downloaded. Makes it easier than going all the way to the library.
