I also spent the weekend babysitting the Grandpuppy, which meant that I was never far from a door (he's not totally housebroken yet, though we did have an accident-free visit). That also meant that I spent a lot of time, sitting in my chair with a warm, sleepy lump of fur on my lap- so I did a bit of reading.
I finished Book 6 in the Sookie Stackhouse saga. Definitely Dead is as much fun as the others -I'm hooked on the stories, and I will be very curious to see if some of these later characters will make it to the HBO series. But I have a feeling that I've missed a short story or a novella or some sort of installment in the storyline somewhere.

I did not know that Sookie's missing cousin Hadley had #1 been found, #2 become a vampire, #3 been killed, or #4 whodunit. Those things are mentioned in the story as though we already knew them, which I didn't.

That small complaint didn't ruin my enjoyment of the book, I was just a bit puzzled.
I also read Dean Koontz's The Face. On the Odd Thomas Scale of Koontz Excellence, I rate this one a 6. It's convoluted, spooky, fun, tense, and as always, a saintly Golden Retreiver makes an appearance. If you like Koontz, I feel confident that you will like this one.
Side note- what is up with the size of some paperbacks? This one was unnaturally tall, and very thick. It was hard to read until I got about 100 pages into it and could break the spine a bit (it has over 600 pages). It's heavy and awkward to hold. wah wah wah.
And I did a little knitting- I'm making progress on the Is It Ugly or Not? Handspun Mitered Square Sweater. I still don't know the answer.
