Booking Through Thursday: But enough about books

btt button

The Booking Through Thursday question for this week is:

Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?

Well, obviously I blog. 🙂 I enjoy playing games, especially with real live people, but often I play Boggle or Scrabble against the computer. I enjoy crafting, though I haven’t done much of it in a while: I used to cross-stitch a lot, and now I like paper crafting like making cards and bookmarks. I’d like to experiment with One Stroke Painting: I’ve taken a couple of classes and have a couple of videos but just haven’t carved out the time to do it. I also like home decorating, finding heart-shaped things, attending church-related functions, writing, watching a little TV, and visiting with friends and family.

I missed out on last week’s question about quirky characters. Dickens wrote some of the quirkiest: Mr. Micawber, Uriah Heep, and Betsey Trotwood, all from David Copperfield, easily come to mind. They were all annoying to some degree, but Micawber and Aunt Betsey grew on me. I was thinking when I saw this question that in TV the eccentric character often steals the show (Fonzie, Steve Urkel), but I can’t think of an incidence of that in books.

  1. This week’s BTT question was really fun. It’s interesting to see what everyone likes doing with the rest of their free time.

    Strangely enough I’ve never really played Scrabble (the physical game), but now I’m playing it all the time on FaceBook.

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
