Friday Finds

Three finds this week- three great finds.

I got Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall, a long but incredibly interesting-looking historical fiction that was shortlisted for this year's Man Booker Prize, for review from the publisher. It has to do with King Henry VIII and Thomas Cromwell; I think if I had seen this in a bookstore I would have been too intimidated to take it on, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I agreed to review it. So we'll see!

Revolutionary Road, Richard Yates's novel, came via Bookmooch, as did John Irving's The World According to Garp. Both were made into movies I enjoyed. I just saw Garp last week for the first time in years and was puzzled by a number of things, so I thought reading the book might help!

When was the last time you read a book that had been made into a movie you liked?
