Friday Finds (June 22)

FRIDAY FINDS… is where you share the book titles you discovered or heard about during the past week. These can be books you were told about, books you discovered while browsing blogs/bookstores online, or books that you actually purchased. This event is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

As usual MizB asks the question:

What great books did you hear about/discover this past week? Share with us your FRIDAY FINDS!

It wasn’t too bad a week this week. I only bought one book, but also got access to 4 ARC galleys from NetGalley.

The one book I bought was for $4.99 at Chapters in Sudbury. It is Secret Lives of Great Authors: What Your Teachers Never Told You About Famous Novelists, Poets, and Playwrights by Robert Schnakenberg. It looks like a book I can keep on hand when I just want to read something light and learn something I didn’t know before, such as Ayn Rand being a huge fan of Charlie’s Angels, or that T.S. Eliot was known for his love of practical jokes like whoopee cushions and exploding cigars!

The four ARCs I got access to are:

  1. Who Is Jesus?: Linking the Historical Jesus with the Christ of Faith by Darrell Bock.
  2. The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen by Susin Nielsen.
  3. The Light Between Oceans – M.L. Stedman.
  4. Sailor Twain: Or: The Mermaid in the Hudson – Mark Siegel.

    • Working in Chapters must be fun. We don’t even have a bookstore in our small town 😦 Nearest Chapters is 2 hours away!
