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.

POC Reading Challenge (2010)

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
