Brr, it's getting cold | Weekly Snapshot

Rest in Peace, Ruth. We will sorely miss you.
Cold morningsFor the past few days, we've been waking up feeling very cold. I've tried my best to ignore the season shift, but this morning, comfort took precedence and the heater has finally been turned on, if only for an hour. So while the afternoons are significantly warmer, the rest of the day and night is not. Personally, I love sweater weather, and with this year being a dud so far and not having been friendly to my wardrobe, I'm looking forward to some retail therapy.
Fall is about sweaters, pumpkins, pumpkin spice, wagon rides, corn mazes, so much good ole fun, and did I already say sweaters?
But, oh wait, we are still in a pandemic. Right, we'll find out what this year's Fall is going to be about. Even if some of these places are open, I know we won't be visiting any this year, so we are all going to be very sad. Maybe I'd try the corn maze - last time I went, it was not crowded at all, but we will have to …

It's Monday! What are you reading? -- October 11, 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
-  Moloka'i by Alan Brennert
-  Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch by Richard Hine

News from over here
This past week, most of the news was around the readathon on Saturday. While I didn't get to read much, I did manage to make some significant progress on a chunkster. This week, I also posted two reviews:
-  The Game-On! Diet by Krista Vernoff and Az Ferguson
-  Moloka'i by Alan Brennert

Books on my nightstand
Although, right now I am in the middle of three books, in a sense, I am also between books, as I try to figure out which book to start with next, while I read the other books on the side.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling: It's been a long time since I picked this one up. I keep picking it and putting it aside because other more urgent reads keep calling me. This week, I'm hoping to sit and read this because I'm never going to be able to find time anyways.
Panopticon by David Bajo: Having requested this one from NetGalley, I plan to pick this one sometime later this week. I don't have much clue about this book, and the reviews have been mostly mixed. Still, it's from Unbridled Books, and since I've loved some of their other titles, I really want to try this one.

I'm only familiar with Harry Potter out of your books listed, hope you enjoy your reads.
a Harry Potter week! I am so excited for the upcoming movie...only a month away!

p.s. you, like me, turned off the word verification during the read-a-thon and haven't turned it back on yet. I'll go do mine now.
I've been seeing "mentions" of the Game-On Diet. It sounds like a great motivator.

Hope you enjoy your books.

Here's my Monday:

That last book really caught my attention. The one you received from Unbridled books. I've never heard of Panocop.... I think of something related to a camera or movie???? Can't wait to read your review.
