Friday Finds














A good week in books, and I'm already half way through one of the four new books to grace my home this week.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie, has been on my radar for a long time and I finally decided to pick it up this week.

The New Weird, an anthology of speculative fiction, and Ursula K. Le Guin's Lavinia were finds from ReaderCon.

Notes from the Underwire, by Quinn Cummings, came to me via a Twitter friend.

They all look great, and Lavinia is fantastic so far- more on that later! And my first post about ReaderCon will be up on Saturday.

You can read more Friday Finds at ShouldbeReading.wordpress.com.

If you haven't already read it, Sherman Alexie's novel Flight is incredible.

Those all look good, but I have to admit I chuckled when I saw the cover and read the title of Notes from the Underwire.

These Friday Finds are killing me. So many great books to add to the ol' wish list.

NOTES FROM THE UNDERWIRE is terrific - you can sample Quinn's wonderful writing at her blog, The QC Report. Of course you'll have to wade through her blog interviews to reach her regular posts (the book came out July 7).

NOTES FROM THE UNDERWIRE looks fun/funny!

Enjoy your new books.
