On a Street Called Easy, In a Cottage Called Joye - a very generous friend lent me this book about two men who restored a 60 room home in Aiken, SC. Having restored the home we are in, I loved hearing all the stories of disasterous events and successful outcomes.
Also have these two books going on simultaneously:
Surprised by Joy - the story of C.S. Lewis' early life
The Art of Racing in the Rain - a story told from the viewpoint of the family's dog
How 'bout you?
