Home projects | Weekly Snapshot

There's been a lot going on over here this past week, both at work and at home. I'm looking forward to when I can read a lot in a sitting. Life I've been pretty distressed by all the gun violence news this week. Not that it has ever not been so distressing, but coming out of the pandemic and pretty much hearing about some shooting or the other almost every day, has just shown that nothing has changed in this world. Adam Toledo and Indianapolis this week. And apparently, there is still no way this can be controlled. Ugh, so frustrated.  When I wasn't worrying about the news (or trying not to), I've been busy picking paint colors. The husband and I have been talking about painting our house, or just the upstairs, or just the downstairs, or the basement, or.. for the better part of the past four years. We finally decided to go ahead with it - that is, paint the entire house. It's a massive undertaking, especially considering the painter is going to be here tomorrow

Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge (2010)



Alright, it's official. This is the last challenge I am signing up for! I will be lucky if I can complete half the challenges. What was I thinking? But then, making all these reading lists is such a huge thrill. I am an obsessed list-maker, something I speak about here. Whew!

So, this challenge is hosted by Lisa at Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge. This follows from the TV show Gilmore Girls, in which there is, believe this, a huge number of books listed. The challenge will officially run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. Crossover books from other challenges are allowed.

I am joining at the Lorelai level, to read 10 books from at least three different categories. So these are the books I plan to read:

Update (Jan 22, 2011): I managed just 4 in the end.
Category: Classics
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Category: YA or Children's
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
3. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

Category: Modern Classics
4. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
5. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
6. The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
7. The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

Category: Other
8. Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
9. Terms of Endearment by Larry McMurtry
10. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells
