Barb recommends listening to Teaching Your Brain to Knit: Episode 16: Knitting and the Need for Novelty to find out more about why most of us have multiple projects on the needles at any one time and why we feel the need to switch projects.

Barb has finished:
The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas. Barb does NOT recommend this book, unless you enjoy in-depth descriptions of male genetalia in your in-the-bedroom scenes.
Unintended Consequences by Marti Green - Barb recommends this as a good solid mystery read.
The Borden Tragedy: A Memoir of the Infamous Double Murder at Falls River, Mass by Rick Geary - this was Barb's first graphic novel and she enjoyed it!
Tracie has finished:
Dark Rooms by Lili Anolik - Tracie does NOT recommend this book. Don't believe the hype.
And Then She Was Gone by Rosalind Noonan - Tracie felt this story was obviously based on the Jaycee Dugard case.
The Wives of Los Alamos by TaraShea Nexbit - Tracie recommends this book as a glimpse into a little-known portion of American history.
The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz - Tracie recommends it!
Isabel Spellman's Guide to Etiquette: What is Wrong with you People? by Lisa Lutz - more of a short story...
