Friday Finds


First of all, I want to apologize for how slow I've been at replying to comments for the past couple of weeks. I'll get caught up eventually!
But thank you to everyone who has continued to comment.

This has been a slow week for book-acquiring; I only bought one book, Michael Gruber's The Book of Air and Shadows, and only because I found a gift certificate to Barnes & Noble in a drawer.

I received an ARC of Joanna Smith Rakoff's A Fortunate Age the other day, courtesy of Barnes and Noble's First Look program; I look forward to starting it soon.

Although family financial setbacks have limited the number of books I've bought, they have not limited the number of books I want! I still go book-browsing several times a week and added two more books to my wishlist today, Linda Grant's The Clothes on Their Backs and Ehud Havazelet's Bearing the Body. Did you put anything new on your wishlist this week?
