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.

Books on my nightstand
I had planned to do a readathon this weekend, but that didn't pan out, because I spent most of my time with friends. But I am in the middle of three books right now.

Crazy by Han Nolan: This book is making for interesting reading. The boy protagonist has a bunch of virtual friends, who do actual communications with him. At some point, it isn't hard to believe they exist and become lost in that world. Didn't we all have imaginary friends at some point in our lives?
The Passage by Justin Cronin: This one sure is going exciting. I am not too far into the book, but I have a feeling that I will like this one!
Blankets by Craig Thompson: I surely have to exclaim WOW here! I was initially pensive about reading this one, knowing that it is serious. But one minute into the book, and I couldn't put it down. It was engaging! It IS engaging!

The Passage was amazing, but very long. I actually had to red it in bites. Enjoy!
The Passage and Still Missing are on my wish list!


Have a great reading week ahead!
