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

It's Monday! What are you reading? -- Mar 22, 2010

It's Monday! What are you reading this week?
This is a weekly event initially hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, now by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books, to celebrate what you are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

Books completed last week
- White Oleander by Janet Fitch
- Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel (To be reviewed)
- Liar by Justine Larbalestier (To be reviewed)
- Sugar by Bernice L. McFadden (To be reviewed)

I am currently reading

The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien: I hadn't been able to start this one yet, and as always, I am late to the LOTR Read-along party.


The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs: Finally, I started this one last night! Phew! That was a one-month delay for me!




My reading plans for the next week

For a change, I am not listing any of my next reads. I do have a good reading weekend coming up, hopefully. I'll just try to pick up what suits my interest, rather than plan in advance!

Comments

I was never able to finish The Lord of the Rings. I keep saying I need to go back and give it another try, and I keep not doing it. Enjoy your books!

I bet you breeze through The Friday Night Knitting Club!
I won Last Nigh in Montreal and am also looking forward to reading Liar. Oh, and I have the Friday Nigh Knitting Club so can't wait to see your review!

You can never be late to the Tolkien party. I love it when I see Tolkien on people's lists. One of my favorite authors.
White Oleander is a memorable read! And I just read The Friday Night Knitting Club...loved it!

You had a good week reading. Hope next week is fruitful too. I will have to stop back to read your reviews on Liar , Sugar, and Last Night in Montreal.
Whatever you choose to read - I hope it is wonderful and look forward to seeing what you chose :)

I hope you are enjoying LOTR. I am curious about what you thought of Liar. I've read mixed reviews (and I inadvertently found out the big spoiler) so I'm not sure I'll be reading it. The Friday Night Knitting Club looks good. I hope you enjoy your books.

Great reading week. My boys tell me over and over that I must read LOTRs. Will get to Liar one of these days.

I love it when I'm able to just pick up whichever book suits my mood and read it.

You know...everytime I see your reading The Lord of the Rings it reminds me I need to get you that paper of my husbands! Will remember to ask, I promise!

I actually have a copy of Friday Night Knitting Club and haven't gotten to it yet. I'll have to see if your review pushes that one into my lap!

Have a fabulous reading week!

Yeah, Friday Night Knitting Club is really easy to read. I enjoyed it.

I see you have Middlesex up there on your sidebar. Wonderin' if that'll be comin' up soon. I have that book and haven't read it yet. It's pretty long. I should though. It keeps staring at me. Ha ha

I like to do that too sometimes...just pick up what I'm in the mood for at the moment.

Have a great week, Aths :)
