Friday Finds- I Swear I'm Doing a lot of Weeding, Too!

Some fun things came in this week.

Barnacle Love, about a Portuguese family emigrating to Canada, came for review from Algonquin. It was a finalist for the Giller Prize and looks really good.

Also for review is Five Women, a book of short stories by German writer Robert Musil, from Godine. I've already dipped into it and it looks fabulous. I'm planning to start it today.

Booker Prize winner The Life and Times of Michael K, by the brilliant J.M. Coetzee, arrived via Bookmooch.

I picked up Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil at the library's book sale table. My trip to Florida is now a trip to Beaufort, SC, and we'll be visiting Savannah while we're there.

Finally I've always kind of wanted to read Robertson Davies, so I was glad to get What's Bred in the Bone via Bookmooch.

What came your way this week? Have a great Friday and see more Friday Finds at
