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.

In my TBR this month | Nonfiction November

This is the last week of Nonfiction November - this may only be my second time actually following through for all four weeks of this event. Which is great - because I discovered some amazing blogs and several excellent nonfiction titles this month.

Doing Dewey is hosting the week and she's asking - 

It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!



I picked up a ton of recommendations this month - these six are the ones I am most looking forward to reading. 


Pandemic Solidarity by Marina Sitrin and Rebecca Solnit - discovered over at Monika's Lovely Bookshelf - she has several similar books recommended in her post, and I'll admit I TBR'd almost all of them. 

Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth - Unsolicited Feedback has several other books on this topic but this one in particular caught my eye.

I Have Something to Tell You by Chasten Buttigieg - this isn't a new to me book but reading about it on Based on a True Story made me want to read it myself.

Wham! by Andrew Ridgeley - Almost every song by George Michael takes me through nostalgia lane - I can probably tell you where I was when I listened to some of his songs for the first time, and so I was glad to see this book mentioned at books are my favourite and best

There's no Such Thing as Bad Weather by Linda Åkeson McGurk - only the day before I saw this book on Paperback Princess did I learn about this Scandinavian saying "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes" on a knitting podcast. Obviously, as a knitter, that quote speaks to me but I also loved all the other meanings this quote could have.

The Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett M. Graff - this is also not a new to me book but I appreciated the reminder at Helen's Book Blog and hope to pick it sooner rather than later. 


What's the number one nonfiction book you discovered this month?
