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. We will have the renovation crew start tomorrow and depending on when all the materials get in, it could be 1.5-3 months before they are done.

Teaser Tuesdays -- Jan 26, 2010


Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

Another glamour on his eyes, and the moment the bouncer had looked straight at him, he was in. Of course, he could probably have gotten by without all that trouble, but it was part of the fun - fooling the mundies, doing it all out in the open right in front of them, getting off on the blank looks on their sheeplike faces.

~ Pg. 2-3, City of Bones (Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra Clare.

I really hope that I get to read that novel soon. I saw it when I went out the other day and it was reviewed by one of my favorite bloggers so I ordered it from the library!
I'm guessing a mundie is like a muggle? This sounds good! I can't wait for your review!
