Miscellaneous Monday

There's more to the hurt book sale than I reported the other day. The others were mostly spinning books, but this includes knitting, crochet, beadwork, and a lot of other crafts. At a quick glance, I noticed that some of the books were half off. Check it out!


Knitty Blog is having another great giveaway! Check it out, too!


There's a new series coming on tomorrow evening, based on the series of books that start with The Nine Lives of Chloe King. This, like Harry Potter is a kid's book, but the story may be one of those (like Harry Potter) that's so universal or entertaining that adults will like it, too.

I don't know because I haven't read the books (although they're on order at the library and should come in tomorrow). But it sounds intriguing and other-worldly, and very much like fantasy, which is starting to show up in better supply on TV these days.

Find out more about the TV show here. Scroll down for more info on the show itself. And get even more facts here. It'll be on ABC Family on Tuesday evening. Check you local listings!

Tomorrow evening, there will be new episodes of White Collar and Covert Affairs, too. At least one of these is on at the same time as Chloe King, but both of them will be rerun, so you can watch the one that overlaps later.

If you have the last episode of the season of Doctor Who (A Good Man Goes to War) still sitting on your TiVo or DVR, watch it! It's one of the most fabulous episodes yet! We finally get to find out who River Song is, and why she wouldn't tell anyone before this. Spoilers! You'll love it!

The second episode of Switched at Birth will be on tonight, and I know it's not science fiction, or even spy fy, but it seems like it's shaping up into a good show about people. Part of the reason I'm watching it is because Daphne is deaf, and half the cast signs, and since I'm losing my hearing, I'm hoping to pick up some ASL while I'm being entertained. The first episode was great, though!

Here's wishing you a great week!
