On reading and some drawings

H4 pencil and B2 pencil

Here I have so far only used a H4 pencil.
You see the botanical illustration I am trying to draw at the top

 Used H4 pencil and B2 pencil.
I made more details on the leaves than the flower heads.
As you can see.


I cannot show you any  finished projects
 - because I am in fact not really doing anything.
(Besides drawing a bit)
Scandalous, I know.
And, very boring!!

I have read a bit though.
I Just read: 
- Austen Land by Shannon Hale
- Midnight in Austenland by Shannon Hale
And I really liked them:)
It is nice to find some books that are just at a great read, 
it happens so rarely!

I used to read tons of books when I was a child and teenager.
Now I only read rarely, because I can't find books I really like.
I used to read fantasy books en masse, but that is not really me anymore.
Then I tried reading whodunit books, but it didn't really get into them.
Dramas not for me either - I have enough drama in my life, thank you very much.

Now I have also come to the conclusion that reading danish books are not an option.
I am not fond of reading danish. -It is just, well, boring.
It ruins a perfectly good book you see.
English on the other hand, is perfection.
Something else that is perfect - is Jane Austen.
But since I have already read her books (except Mansfield park),
listened to them as audio books,
and watched most of the different versions of movies and mini-series there exist.
(Several times over)
- Fan fiction seem to be right up my alley.

So far I have read several (By Amanda Grange, Pamela Aidan, Laurie Viera Rigler) ,
 and only one of them I didn't like (by Linda Berdoll).

I foresee several days joyful entertainment reading some more good books:)

Happy reading!
