I have been informed that there'll be a knitblogger meetup at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday in the grassy field next to the building where the Koigu donnybrook takes place.
I'll stop but believe it or not, I find these gatherings overwhelming (especially since last year, no one had ever heard of my blog). So look for me and say hi.
Book Report: April
1. The Dead Beat: Lost Souls, Lucky Stiffs, and the Perverse Pleasures of Obituaries This was an amusing look at the world of obituary writers, including lots of hilarious quotes from classic obituaries. (It's way funnier than it sounds.)
2. Lone Wolf: Eric Rudolph: Murder, Myth, and the Pursuit of an American Outlaw, an account of the investigation into Rudolph's bombings, the manhunt leading to his capture, and a pretty thoughtful look at his biography. What frightened me most about this book was the realization that there are some mighty scary, violent people out there whose view of the world and our country and what is and isn't moral is so vastly different from mine.
