Friday Finds - My Warehouse Sale Finds and More















Last weekend Harvard Bookstore held its semiannual warehouse sale, where they open a big building filled with remainders and used books. I got a few cool things- Iain Banks' novel The Steep Approach to Garbardale, John Williams' Stoner and a collection of comics by animator Lev Yilmaz, a favorite of mine. Banks is another favorite; he's an established science fiction author who also writes amazing literary fiction. I can't wait to read this one!

Forget Sorrow, a graphic novel by Belle Yang, came for review from her publicist.

The Lacuna, Barbara Kingsolver's recent Orange Prize winner, came from my pal Frances at NonSuch Book, a wonderful literary fiction book blog.

What are you reading today? Have a great weekend!

The Warehouse Sale sounds like so much fun! Forget Sorrow catches my eye.

Ooh, I am jealous of your NYRB edition of Stoner! People really liked that during the Spotlight Series!

How I wish we had these types of sales in my part of the world. Yet again, just another way to put book temptation in my way, perhaps it isn't such a good thing.

I have heard great things about Stoner and The Lacuna, and will be really interested in hearing what you think. The warehouse sale sounds like it was a lot of fun. Wish we had one around here!! Enjoy your new reads, Marie!

I am on a roll with Orange Prize winners....I haven't run into a single one that I didn't just love.

I haven't read The Lacuna yet, though. It's on my list and I'll look forward to hearing what you think of it.

During my time in Boston living there, I never made it to this sale. Oh well. You got some good ones!

Stoner is a fantastic book. So glad NYRB brought it back from the dead.
