I've started The Diviners by Libba Bray, and I can already tell it's going to be awesome. I love my Kindle Fire; it makes checking my e-mail really easy, so I don't avoid it simply to avoid the laptop.
I'm teaching myself to knit. We'll see how that goes, but so far it seems promising. I'm trying to make a scarf. I can't wait until I know enough to make the more advanced stuff. The ultimate goal is a bitching sweater. (:
