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. I just hope the flooring is done quickly because then we can reclaim some of the main floor back. Not having a kitchen for 2-3 months is going to be very challenging but we've been promised a small work area on the main floor where we can cook early morning and later in the evening.

It's Monday! What are you reading? -- July 26, 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
Having just returned back from watching Inception, I totally forgot about this post. My conscious and "subconscious" kept muddling over all the facts before it "woke itself up" and I remembered this post.
So it's been another busy week, and I got only one book done.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker

Books reviewed

Books on my nightstand

I guess I did become too ambitious with my reading list last week, so I have pretty much the same set of books on my nightstand again.

One Vacant Chair by Joe Coomer: I started reading this one yesterday, but didn't get that far in. It's quite funny at times, plus engrossing.
Crazy by Han Nolan: Again, I will read this only if I get the time. I'm not sure yet about it, plus this ebook expires in a few days.
The Passage by Justin Cronin: I really can't wait to read this. I am so in a mood for reality-challenging stuff now, without venturing into anything paranormal. Could be the Inception effect.

I adore Nelson Demille, but I haven't yet read the one you've chosen. I'll be back to see what you thought of it.

Have a great reading week!

I'm so impatient to read The Passage but know I have to get through more of my pile here before putting it on hold.

Happy reading!

My son has seen Inception twice and said it is the best movie he has ever seen. He is taking me on Tuesday to it.

I too am reading The Color Purple. Have a good week!
I need to reread The Color Purple...it's been many years.

One Vacant Chair and Crazy captured my interest.

Hi Aths. I am looking forward to watching Inception.
I just picked up The Passage, and while I want to read it, I have to admit that the length is daunting t me. You have to let me now when you start, and maybe I will be inspired.
