Reading Wednesday Again

I picked up The Glass Menagerie from the library last week and have only read the intro. I've got Dodger that I'm still trying to read and still I picked up about 4 books from the library :p Most of them are needlework because I wanted to look at the patterns and different types of stitches. I also got a short story collection called Chicks kick butt or something like that ;) I also had audible on accident when Neil Gaiman's short story was free (still haven't listened to it) there was a free trial but I forgot to exit out of it and then it charged $15.99 or something to us. So hubs told me and I got my 2 book credits and got The Berlin Stories and Christopher and His Kind by Christopher Isherwood. Though I'm looking at it now and it says I have part 2 of and his kind :p I did finish listening to The Berlin Stories last night and they were wonderfully read by Michael York. It was kinda funny hearing his voice but I kept picturing Matt Smith as Christopher. It did occur to me that it would be really lovely if they were in something together. Michael York is still working according to IMDB and that's where I saw he was in Cabaret. Cabaret is based off some of the elements of The Berlin Stories. I'm a little tiffed though that Netflix only has the movie on DVD and my library doesn't have it. I checked Best Buy and sometime Feb or March it's being released on Blue Ray and DVD. Would it be worth the money to buy it if I've never seen it before? Has anyone else seen it? Remember when you comment on this post I'll enter you in a drawing for a stitchy bookmark. I'm almost done with the pirate book mark. I haven't taken a picture this morning so I may update the post later :) For another chance at a bookmark you can scroll down to my Grow Your Blog Post and enter to win that giveaway on Feb 1st.

Here is my first Winter finish! -

As for other things I'm reading, I'm about 1/3 of the way through two detective stories - a Tres Navar story and a Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels mystery. I'm also trying hard with one of my guilty reads - the book I got from my high school for finishing my education there with excelent marks ( I really didn't like their choice of books! XD)
