A Few Friday Finds
















I'm trying to get a little more control over my book-buying (ha!) so this week saw just a very few new finds.

Paolo Giordano's The Solitude of Prime Numbers showed up on the remainder pile at a local bookstore, so I finally brought it home. A love story about two misfits, I can't wait to read this.

Great House, by Nicole Krauss, was sent courtesy of LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I'm now 3 books behind in my Early Reviewer obligations and really need to catch up!

Finally, I finally found The Conservationist, Nadine Gordimer's Booker Prize winner, at a local bookstore. I don't know why but I've been having the hardest time tracking this down. Next time I'll just start in Harvard Square instead of leaving their wonderful bookstores for last.

That's it! What have you found this week?

I love the cover of The Solitude of Prime Numbers and hope the book lives up to it. I'm behind on my LT books as well.

Great House seems to be the book I am hearing the most about this last week or so. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it.

I acquired The Conservationist from Bloomsbury publishers on the back of reading and loving July's People earlier this year. Thanks for the reminder to read it!

About "finds" I was recently needing a book for a return trip across the country and was in a Big Lots store with my sister. There was Child 44, hard cover, for $3. I'd read a review of it and had wanted to read it. I almost finished on the cross country flight. It was so good that I got home and ordered the 2nd book from this author, Tom Rob Smith. Finds are exciting!

I am glad to see I am not the only one behind on the LT early reviewers books!

These all sound like excellent selections!
