Damn you Nook and Robert Dancik

I got a Nook for Christmas. I wrestled back and forth on getting one. I am an old fashion kind of gal. I was making a stand. I loved the feel of a book, loved to turn the pages and the smell. Yes new books smell. 

I was worried that the book would go by the wayside and become a thing of the past. I kept seeing some futuristic short stories by Ray Bradbury were there were no books left in the world.

Ok I broke. I am doing the walk of shame. I haven't had my nose out of it since I got it. Of course it might have something to do with what I am reading. I finished The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and my first purchase was the next in the series The Girl Who Played With Fire. I finished it in no time flat, and onto the next one.

Then another favorite present was Robert Dancik's book Amulets and Talismans. Can you say yummy. Robert spoke at the Gathering convention this summer for the ISGB. He was so informative and such a great speaker that I couldn't wait to get his book. I am still going over every inch and hoping to somehow translate it into my beads. We will see. 
Off to read some more....fricken nook.

  1. My husband loves his Nook and it sounds like you are hooked too! I have the book by Robert Dancik and it really is a great one...full of such amazing techniques. It's been a while since I played with metal....I should find my copy for inspiration (if only I had more time!).
