Looking forward to the holidays | Weekly Snapshot

This coming week is a short week at work. One that I've been looking forward to for a while, if mainly to break the monotony of work + life at home and just have some life, movies, and fun.  Currently It looks like this week is going to be a very dull one in weather - cloudy, rainy sometimes, snowy towards the end of the week - very typical for winter but dull nevertheless. This is the season that has felt depressing to me ever since my first pregnancy - until then, I loved winter through and through. So, the extra restrictions that is the signature of 2020 is going to make this winter a dud. I think I'll just start planning for post-winter.  We wanted to go visit family in Boston but eventually, like many others, decided against it. Maybe there will be a vaccine available soon, and we can slowly start claiming some normalcy back. I don't know how normal it will be though - it's still too early to know what post-vaccine is going to be like.  Reading I was right in picki

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.
