Friday Finds



Two great books came my way this week.

Shades of Grey, Jasper Fforde's new one, came for review from the publisher. I'm really looking forward to this; early reviews on LibraryThing indicate that it's more sophisticated and serious than his earlier books, but a quick glance also tells me it's not missing his trademark dry wit. So it should be great!

One of my best girlfriends sent me a signed hardcover of Paul Auster's latest, Invisible. Jean and I became big fans of his when we were in college and read The New York Trilogy; for a long time I had a poster from the reading he did for it at MIT hanging in my bedroom. I'm behind on his books these days though and really, really need to catch up.

I don't know about you, but I feel like with all the great books coming out and all the older classics I want to read, I'll never catch up- but that won't stop me from trying!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and gets to spend some time lost in your TBR piles!
