Knitting Pair Four for Soaring Eagles
I love my Bryspun needles. How come no one goes on and on about loving their Bryspuns? Has no one else discovered these gems?
Enjoying on CD: The Black Echo, by Michael Connelly
This is the first in the Harry Bosch series. The reader, Dick Hill, is brilliant. Brilliant!
Before I knew this was a long series, I had listened to the last in the series, Echo Park. While that book was good, this first one is great, and the reader of The Black Echo is far superior to the reader of Echo Park.
The only problem I've had with it is the version I bought is MP3-CD and would not copy into iTunes/iPod and froze my computer. It seems to be copy protected. (why can't there just be a message saying, "This CD is not copyable" when you try to copy it, rather than freezing the computer? Hm?) It will also not play in a standard CD player, so that cuts out listening to it in the car. It's more than slightly annoying that I had to buy an MP3-format CD player, dedicated for this one book. Talk about an expensive book to listen to!
When I realized that "Bosch" was a long series, I really wanted to properly listen to the entire series from the start, and the first book seems to be unavailable in standard CD format. Sheesh.
So I guess this is the wave of the future...yet more equipment to buy. When this first arose as an issue, I did some Googling and found articles online that speculated that car CD players will soon become obsolete. Isn't that just typical?!
All this took place before I was handed down Abigail's iPod. Of course, now I can download the books from audiobook sites, but it was all too late, as I had opened the package and tried to play it on the car CD player, etc. etc. etc., et the fuck cetera.
It's always something.
Knitting is so much simpler and more civilized.
