Friday Finds

Two great new books came my way this week.

I received Julie and Julia, Julie Powell's blog-turned-book, which I won in a giveaway at Carolina Gal's Literary Cafe. Thank you Susan! This is definitely one for the beach bag and I can't wait to read it.
I picked up Alia Yunis's The Night Counter as well, a story about several generations of a Muslim family in Lebanon and the United States over a hundred years. It looks wonderful and I'm looking forward to it. Carolyn Turgeon, author of Godmother, says it's "an enchanting debut that winks and glitters like the bangles that line [a character's] arms." Sounds great!

What's going in your beach bag this weekend?
