Friday Finds





I'm so excited about this week's new additions to my library.

First up is the incredible The Photographer: Into War-Torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders, drawn & written by Emmanuel Guibert with photographs by Didier Lefevre. I'm about halfway through it; it's an amazing combination of photojournalism and graphic novel. You'll be hearing more about this incredible book on an upcoming Graphic Novel Monday.

Next up, The Invisible Mountain, by Carolina de Robertis. I won this galley in a Random House giveaway. Thank you RH! I'm looking forward to reading it.

Finally, I borrowed Mystics, Mavericks and Merrymakers: An Intimate Journey Among Hasidic Girls, by Stephanie Wellen Levine. Levine is a member of my book club and her book is next month's selection; it's a series of profiles of young Lubavitcher Hasidic women discussing their lives, hopes and dreams. It's really great and I'm sure it will make for a terrific discussion.

Now I'm off to the bookstore to participate in Buy Indie Day. I'll be back later with my new book!
