The past couple of months I’ve been ready a variety of books on preserving food from the garden, along with self-sustaining living. I just finished a book on dehydrating food and I think that is what I will focus on this summer when it comes time to harvest the garden. I think that will work well for the squash, carrots and peppers we are growing. I still haven’t figured out if I will try canning this summer. I’ve never canned food, so we’ll see what happens (of course, I’ve never dehydrated food either, but I’ll give it a go!)
Other than that, right now on my Kindle I have a few books that I’m reading. I’m still going through the Anne Perry books again and I’m on Belgrave Square.
I’m also reading a new cozy mystery by Monica Ferris, The Drowning Spool. I’ve read all the others in this series and though I enjoyed the earlier ones better, I will continue to read them as they come out.
I also am trying to get through the first Game of Thrones book by George R. R. Martin. I don’t usually read fantastical type books, but I was kind of curious what all the fuss was about. We watched the first episode of the show via Netflix a couple of weeks ago and weren’t really thrilled by it and decided not to continue with it. But I decided I would try the books and see if I liked them. Still in the early stages on that.
Other than that, I have a few free Kindle downloads that I haven’t started yet. They are mostly cozy mysteries or non-fiction books that piqued my interest. We’ll see when I get around to reading them.
I’m also working my way through the Craftsy class “Art Quilt Backgrounds” with Judith Trager. It’s going OK. I may or may not ever use this technique, but I haven’t gotten to the screen printing lessons yet, so we’ll see how it pans out. So far, there are many other Craftsy classes that I have enjoyed more, but this is going fine.
That’s about it. What are you reading?
