The renovation finally | Weekly Snapshot

I've been having quite a few busy weekends and haven't been able to post often on Sundays.  Renovating I have dropped a teaser here a few times but here's the scoop finally - We are renovating a big chunk of our main level. We've been planning this for the past 6-7 months. It started as a kitchen renovation project but now includes flooring through the main floor and master bathroom.

Booking Through Thursday -- Gifts

Booking Through Thursday

This meme is hosted at Booking Through Thursday.

Barbara wants to know:
What books did you get for Christmas (or whichever holiday you may have celebrated last month)?
Do you usually ask for books on gift-giving occasions or do you prefer to buy them yourself?

I got two books for Christmas from two of my groups in Goodreads - The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella (I love Sophie Kinsella, so I was really glad to receive this book) and Moloka'i by Alan Brennert (I have heard a lot of good reviews about Alan Brennert's Honolulu and Moloka'i. So this was a really pleasant gift!).

I prefer to buy books myself. I don't mind asking for a specific book, but usually, I like to walk into a bookstore, ogle at all those books and decide what to buy, rather than have someone deliver the goods to me (not that I don't like it!) :-)
