Sunday Synopsis: November 28, 2010
My in-laws left yesterday and my parents are leaving first thing in the morning and Tuesday afternoon. It has been so good to see everyone and spend time with them for Thanksgiving. It will also be nice to get back into the swing of things though and not feel like my home is a constant cluster of clutter! I have always had issues with cluttered space and with four people staying with us the past week in our tiny home, every nook and cranny has been stuffed with something or filled with toys and games from the kids playing.
Considering the chaos around my house, I have been able to get a good chunk of reading in. I decided to pick up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for a quick re-read. No matter how many times I have read this book, it still becomes one that is hard to put down! I should finish that one in the next couple of days and then plan to pick up A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle for my book club next week and then probably Dogsbody by Diana Wynne Jones thanks to Kristen at We Be Reading! She has been raving about DWJ and even sent me a copy of this book to get me started! I can't wait to dig in . . . afterall, her blog is one of my worst for growing my TBR pile! :)
Since I have been away for so long, I am once again (or shall I say still?) behind on many posts and reviews. I am really hoping to begin working on catching up during the month of December. I have also decided to work on a few challenges again for 2011 and will be posting about those in the next couple of weeks as well. Thanks for sticking with me during yet another short absence and be watching for much more to come in my book-ish world! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday (for all my American friends) or at least a great weekend for those who are international! And, here's to a great, productive week to come!
Did you have a great (holiday) weekend? What is on your current reading list this week?
