Refreshed from a road trip | Weekly Snapshot

I'm getting an extremely late start to this post. After the long drive yesterday back home and then a late evening meetup with our neighbors, I was out of juice very fast and needed to crash. And what does Sunday morning mean after a busy week? Tis a day full of chores. Ugh.  Life We spent this past week in Boston with my brother-in-law and his wife. We all got the break we needed - we did some shopping, watched lots of TV, and enjoyed lots of family time. I started writing this post on our drive back but didn't get to schedule in advance. We opted to drive the 13-hour route so although it made for some very long days, it felt good to get out of the house and enjoy a road trip. The weather cooperated all the days in all the places we were in those days so that was a plus.  As always after a long vacation, we have come back to a lot to do. I have so much to catch up with and need to do some of that today as there's just as much to do on the work front from tomorrow.  Renovat

POC Reading Challenge (2010)



I couldn't really pass up this challenge. With all the white-washing incidents happening in the book industry, first the Liar controversy and now the Magic Under Glass controversy, this challenge was probably long due.

This is being hosted at POC Reading Challenge and the site also contains a good list of POC books. I am joining at Level 4 (Read 10-15 POC books), though I hope to read more books than that! I don't plan to chart my entire list right away. Most likely, I will come back and update as I decide. There are some excellent books out there that this is going to be really difficult to choose from!

Sign-up here.

My list:
  1. Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi
  2. Say you're one of them by Uwem Akpan
  3. Sugar by Bernice L. McFadden
  4. Glorious by Bernice L. McFadden
  5. Climbing the Stairs by Padma Venkatraman
  6. Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi
  7. One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
  8. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  9. A House at the Edge of Tears by VĂ©nus Khoury-Ghata
  10. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
