glasses for carole knits

As I believe I have mentioned, I’ve been reading a lot lately. In fact, I’ve already finished 13 books this year. The most recent one was Rachael Herron’s Pack Up The Moon.

Now, Rachael is a fellow knit blogger and I’m sure many of you know her and read her blog. I had the privilege of meeting her at Rhinebeck a few years ago and . . . wait, I’m going to go look this up . . .  okay, it was 7 years ago. SEVEN years. And I’m linking to the post and the photo of Rachael and I but I almost didn’t because, ummmm, yeah, I was big.


I have read all of Rachael’s books but this one is by far my most favorite. It’s heartbreaking and moving and I fell in love with all of the characters and it ended just the way I wanted it to. Go and read it.

And then come back and tell me if you liked it as much as I did.

  1. I have a signed copy of her first book…but I haven’t read it – thanks for prompting me to get back to it and to catch up on her other titles!

  2. I just added it to my Goodreads queue. It does sound good! Thanks for the recommendation! I just started listening to The Inverntion of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. So far it is drawing me in. Can’t wait to start my daily chores so I can get back to it 🙂

  3. I’ve got a big list from the ToT and now I’m going to add this. Off to update Goodreads! Thans for the review Carole!

  4. I loved that book too. I pre-ordered it & had it finished in a day or two. I always love Rachael’s characters. I feel like I know them. Pack Up the Moon showed some of the less than pretty sides to the characters, but I still fell in love with them – they were like real people.

  5. An assignment–so many books, so little time! You’d think things would be different after retirement.

  6. I have added it to my list – I haven’t been reading much lately but I know I will get back into the groove with summer coming. Thanks for the recommendation!

  7. I thought you looked beautiful in that pic from 2007. However, the fact that you like your current pictures better makes me happy for you.
