What I'm currently reading

I think I did something bad to my reading brain 12 months ago when I forced myself to plough through the Chaos Walking Trilogy at high speed in order to write the final assignment for the OU Children's Literature course. I really hated the books, though did well in the assignment, so I suppose it was worth it, but for months I couldn't face reading anything much at all. In fact it was not until early this year that a binge of re-reading P G Wodehouse somehow reawakened my literary taste buds. Even then, I was somewhat at a loss as to what to read because my taste for SF and fantasy still hasn't returned, but there aren't many other genres that I like. I did enjoy Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan, so now I'm reading another story by him called Annabel Scheme. Actually, Annabel Scheme is mildly SF, though very near future, so perhaps this means I'm nearly cured? :)

As you can see, I use my iPod Touch as an ereader for Kindle and other ebooks. Also you can see I have just finished my first Tunisian crochet project, a snazzy new purple case for the iPod. The rather grubby grey knitted case I made when I first bought it can finally go in the wash!
