Yarnalong - the one with the paper book

I've been reading novel exclusively on my Kindle since I bought my first one, over three years ago. I just adore it. A couple of months ago I finished City of Stairs and bought the next book in the series, City of Blades, using Amazon 1-click. I happened to review the ;purchase email and realised I had accidentally bought the paper book. I immediately tried to return it. Amazon accepted the return, but sent me the book anyway. So I'm reading a paper book, and it's quite challenging. Even just holding it is more stressful on my poor hands than the Kindle, and I keep on forgetting to put my bookmark back in when I'm done.


Ahh, my bookmark. I love this bookmark. It's by Bookrug and is so pretty, and has a lovely texture. I guess before I was obsessed with Kindle covers I obsessed about bookmarks.

As for actual content, I'm enjoying the book. I'm not very far into it yet, but it has the same tone as it's predecessor. 

I'm still knitting  Vitamin D cardigan. It's going well, I can't show a good photo, because I'm doing the shortrows so it's all bunched up on the needle. 

As usual on a Wednesday I'm joining in with Ginny and the yarnalong. Click over to her blog to see what she, and everyone else, is knitting and reading this week.

  1. I love a good bookmark, although I also read mostly on my kindle now too! I look forward to seeing your finished Vitamin D!

  3. I love a nice bookmark too. These days I do a lot of book reading via library downloads on my mobile, occasionally on my Kindle and rarely in paper (real) form. I love the convenience of reading on my mobile, oh and sometimes I have an audible book so I can do something else at the same time. Like knitting :)

  4. Oh, Vitamin D cardigan is on my list from a while too!! The best thing of owning a tablet is that I can read while knit, somehow reading a paper book is not always managable for me... Lovely bookmark too :)

  5. Lovely bookmark! I'm always tucking receipts and tiny scraps of paper in as bookmarks.
