Friday Finds

Three things new to the TBR shelf this week:

I got This is Where I Leave You, by Jonathan Tropper, in the mail from the author's publicist; I'm about 3/4 of the way through this quick, bittersweet, raunchy beach book and enjoying it thoroughly.

Sebastian Barry's The Secret Scripture has been on my radar for a while- ever since it was nominated for last year's Booker Prize- but I found a hardcover on the bargain table at one of my haunts this week and picked it up for a song.

The Confessions of Noa Weber, by Gail Hareven, was a surprise from my LibraryThing friend Irene. It's an Israeli novel and I think I'll like it because all but one of the books LT reccomends for readers of this book, are books I've read and enjoyed. But I'll let you know!

Otherwise, this Friday finds me weeding my book collection, putting some things aside for vacation in a couple of weeks, and finding even more books I'd love to read in my local bookstores. You?
