Friday Finds - Happy New Year!

Three finds to report today to round out 2009 and begin the new year.

Any Human Heart, by William Boyd, is the first ebook I bought since getting my shiny new Sony Reader. Come back on Tuesday to hear more about my experiences with the new toy! As far as the book goes, I've started reading it and I'm enjoying it a lot. It's written in diary form, about an English man. Right now he's still in high school so I can tell you more later.

Token, by Alisa Kwitney and Joelle Jones, is another entry in the Minx line of graphic novels. I picked it up on sale earlier this week. It's about a young girl who doesn't fit in growing up in the 1980s in Florida.

The Famished Road, Ben Okri's Booker Prize-winning novel, arrived from Bookmooch. I didn't recognize the name when I requested it, but seeing it now, I think I tried to read it several years ago and stopped in the middle. Well, I'm willing to give it another shot.

2009 has been a fantastic year of reading for me, in no small part because of all of you who read and comment here on my blog. As we start 2010, I just want to say thank you to all of you and I look forward to sharing another year of reading with you! So, thank you! :-) 2010 is going to be even better with more literary fiction, graphic novels, Jewish lit and the occasional surprise.

I can't wait!
