Friday Finds
















A few fun finds for this Friday:

The Glass Palace, by Amitav Ghosh, arrived via Bookmooch. Since I enjoyed Sea of Poppies, I'm interested to read more of Ghosh's work.

Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell. I haven't read this since high school but I started rereading it in the bookstore and it's just such a sentimental favorite, I had to have it. Love Gone with the Wind!

The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf, by Mohja Kahf, and The Girl from Foreign, by Sadia Shepard, are two upcoming selections for my bookclub and should be great reads.

What's new for you this week? Read more Friday Finds here.

It's pretty difficult to resist "Gone With the Wind". I originally read it just because I saw it lying around, but against my better judgement I found myself actually enjoying it. Hopefully it's be just as good (or possibly better) the second time around. Enjoy!

I was thinking you were going to have the joy of reading Gone with the Wind for the first time. Great finds, as usual!

Some lovely looking covers on these books. Looking forward to the Glass Palace.

I've read GWTW twice (both times in college) and would love to read it again soon...

Kathleen said...

I loved GWTW (book and movie). I'd love to reread it again and see what I think of it now.

Just got an ARC of MAKING TOAST by Roger Rosenblatt yesterday. I have a feeling I will need lots of kleenex!

Oooh, I'm really drawn to the cover of "The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf"

I love GWTW...I have a coy myself. I may pick it up. Seems perfect for a really frigid New England Winter Weekend.

GWTW is one of my all time favorites! I'm rereading this year, I think for the 3rd time. Enjoy!

All of these are great finds! I do have a copy of Gone With the Wind and I have not yet read it, but I've heard it's good. I hope your next read by Ghosh is good as well and will be looking forward to reading your review on it.

Oooh, I just read and reviewed The Glass Palace last week (or was it the week before?). Snap!
