Friday Finds- Finally, a Few!


A few finds- but enough for a post!

Now, it's not like I haven't found anything I wanted to read this week, but for some reason I've been slow to buy. I was in one of my favorite bookstores yesterday browsing and could easily have had myself a little shopping spree, but I just haven't been in a buying mood. I did get a couple of things though.

Penelope Lively's Booker Prize winning Moon Tiger came via Bookmooch.

A trip to the used-book section of Brookline Booksmith yielded two novels, both Europa Editions- the detective thriller The Midnight Choir, by Gene Kerrigan. It caught my eye because it's set in modern-day Dublin. I also found Jane Gardam's Orange Prize-nominated Old Filth. I'm not sure exactly why I bought it, but it just seemed like something I'd like.

What looked good to you this week?
