Friday Finds- Electronic Edition

















This week was all about the e-book for me. I had a gift certificate to the Sony eReader Store hanging around from my birthday, so I decided to go ahead and spend it on some things.

A Mountain of Crumbs, by Elena Gorokhova, a memoir about growing up in 1960s Soviet Russia, which appeals to my Russophile side. A while back I read a really great memoir on the same subject, called Out of Line: Growing up Soviet, by Tina Grimberg, and I'm really looking forward to Gorokhova's book.

Francine Prose's Reading Like a Writer is one that's been on my must-read list for a while.

Frederica, by Georgette Heyer, is an experiment in a new genre, which came to my attention thanks to one of the awesome blogs I read. I really need to start keeping track of exactly where these ideas come from, so I can give proper credit- and links!

Finally Dan Chaon's Await Your Reply is a novel I was interested in a while back and then sort of forgot about. Maybe I'll get to it soon!

What did you find this week?
