It's the Island Life | Weekly Snapshot

By the time this post is published, we will all be back home, but right this moment, as I type this up, we are enjoying our last day at Daufuskie, a secluded island near Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA. We were lucky to score a cottage (without having to break the bank) with front-row access to the beach, something that has always been on my bucket list and that I was thrilled to cross off.  This week has been very refreshing and just what I needed - a getaway, a break from it all, a retreat with family with no thoughts of work, to-do lists, and chores getting in the way. The island sure runs on its own time. The streetlights aren't turned ON at night to avoid attracting turtles too far from their ideal nesting place. There's the alligator crossing time at night when they go from pond to pond visiting friends (and hence tourists are advised to stay home when it's dark). There are very few cars - instead the preferred mode of transportation is via golf carts, which can go o

It's Monday! What are you reading? -- September 20, 2010


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

News from over here
So I didn't post any reviews over the last week, what with BBAW and all. Instead, here's what happened over here this past week

Books on my nightstand
This week, I'm hoping to get through a big stack of books. I took care of a lot of distracting items over the weekend, so I hope to feel less pressured over the week. I'm doing the Fall Catch-up readathon, so fingers crossed! Here's what my week looks like.

The Passage by Justin Cronin: I didn't really have time to pick this up last week, but hey today starts a new week! I don't want to get bogged in a chunkster, so I'll take this one slow even if it takes me a month to finish it.
Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser: I have just a few mores pages to go, but isn't this book delightful! I am not enjoying it so much as the first Lumby book, Lumby Lines. But Lumby is still as quirky as I remember it!
Moloka'i by Alan Brennert: I'm reading this one with a few buddies from one of my Goodreads groups. I've heard so much of this one and Brennert's other book, Honolulu. I'm especially in love with this cover!

YAY for Game On Diet! Hang in there with The Passage - it is worth it :)
I so lagged with BBAW! The week was insane and I didn't post once, about anything. Ugh. Once this new website training is over (this Wed.) things may get better.... or perhaps crazier as the staff begins to work on the site and has questions.

The Lumby books sounds like a lot of fun. Lumby Lines is already on my wishlist.
This all look like great reads. I can relate on the "chuckster" tackled one for a couple of weeks and it started so good, by about page 350 I wanted to throw it at a wall. The last chapter was good. I forced myself to finish but felt like I wasted time reading 300 pages that I'll never get back.

Looks like you've got a really full week ahead of you. Enjoy all your reading!

Here's what I'm reading:

The Passage looks good, but I only read one book at a time and that one looks like it could take an eternity! :D I hope you enjoy it.
I agree, the Passage looks good but soooo long. I'm saving it for the holidays when I have more time to read.

I know what you mean about BBAW, it completely messed up my schedule of things, reading as well. But it was so much fun! I'm really interested in reading The Passage at some point, I just don't have any idea when I'll ever fit it in. Ugh.

Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop by There’s A Book to take a look at what I’ve got planned for the week! :)
