Friday Finds (May 31)

fridayfinds5FRIDAY 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 picked up a grand total of 21 books this past week from a variety of places:

I was given the following seven Louis L’Amour books:

  • Bowdrie’s Law
  • The Broken Gun
  • How the West Was Won
  • The Iron Marshall
  • The Shadow Riders
  • Shalako
  • To the Far Side of the Mountain

I bought Shake Hands with the Devil by Romeo Dallaire at a local thrift store. I bought Blessed Be Your Name by Matt and Beth Redman on sale at another store in town. This week was also the last week of the library book sale, so I went a couple of times and picked up the following eleven books:

  • Shampoo Planet – Douglas Coupland
  • The Barrytown Trilogy – Roddy Doyle
  • Johnny Mnemonic (the screenplay and the story) – William Gibson
  • The Man In the Picture: A Ghost Story – Susan Hill
  • Dead Simple – Peter James
  • Einstein’s Dream – Alan Lightman
  • The Far Side of the World – Patrick O’Brian
  • The Truelove – Patrick O’Brian
  • Joseph Banks: A Life – Patrick O’Brian
  • Extraordinary Canadians: Lord Beaverbrook – David Adams Richards
  • Blondie: The Bumstead Family History – Dean Young and Melena Ryzik

The final book I got was an ARC of the paperback edition of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, which I received from lytrherus.com

Now I need to find space to put them all! It was a good week 🙂
