My mother loves to read even more than she enjoys needlepointing...outrageous, I know! She often bemoans the fact that she can't turn out finished needlepoint as quickly as she likes because she is always reading. I happen to love to stitch more than I like to read--good thing since I own a needlepoint shop, right?! But I was disappointed how much mindless television I was watching. The solution for both of us...books on tape! I download books to my iPod from or the iTunes store. Now I can listen to books and needlepoint at the same time! Feel free to suggest books you've particularly enjoyed.

AMH Designshas created kits for needlepoint iPod cases, too. Now you can be fully decked out!
