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!
I had a decent week this week:
- The Navigator – Clive Cussler with Paul Kemprecos
- The Yiddish Policemen’s Union – Michael Chabon
- Uh-Oh: Some Observations From Both Sides of the Refigerator Door – Robert Fulghum
- The Violinist’s Thumb: And Other Lost Tales of Love, War, and Genius, as Written By Our Genetic Code – Sam Kean
- This Year in Jerusalem – Mordecai Richler
- Dispatches from the Sporting Life – Mordecai Richler
- The History of Scotland – Plantagenet and Fiona Somerset Fry
The first three books I got from a local thrift store for the total of a dollar; the fourth book was one I won as a giveaway; the last three were bought by my wife from Value Village. I also received a prize pack in the mail today of Nate Rocks the World by Karen Pokras Toz along with some other goodies (pictured below). I won this pack from the authors website as part of a celebratory giveaway.
