Molly Bloom is a knitter!

Wow today I finished Ulysses by James Joyce. What a roller coaster. I have to say that I really enjoyed reading it. I guess I was in the right place to be able to devote the time to get to know the novel and delve into it. Some parts were rough to digest but I dug in and kept reading. I have to say thanks to the internet I found some great analysis of the book and it did'nt hurt that I listened to the audio version and read the book at the same time. I was able to get more out of the book. Oh and Molly Bloom is a knitter she mentions knitting three times in the book. So let's take a look at the list and see where we are:

1. ULYSSES by James Joyce (done)
2. THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald (done)
3. A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN by James Joyce (reading right now)
4. LOLITA by Vladimir Nabokov (done)
5. BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley (done)
6.THE SOUND AND THE FURY by William Faulkner (reading right now)
7. CATCH-22 by Joseph Heller (bought a copy)
8. DARKNESS AT NOON by Arthur Koestler (looking for a copy)
9. SONS AND LOVERS by D.H. Lawrence (done)
10. THE GRAPES OF WRATH by John Steinbeck (done)

So I am reading The Sound and The Fury right now and I am loving it. It is such a fascinating book. I also got a audio copy of Portrait of the artist and will do the same thing I did with Ulysses.

Here is a finished object from the WIP Wrestlemania event. I did this for my big brother for his birthday. He digs weird hats! Nate is modeling it for me!
