Friday Finds! Sick Day Edition


No video this week; I'm taking a "sick day" and I don't think you want to watch a video of me all green and unhappy. I'll be back with another vlog next week but for now I have two great finds to tell you about.

First up is Solo, by Rana Dasgupta, about political changes in post-war Bulgaria. I won this book from LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program.

Next is What If? Writing Exercises for Fiction Writers, by Anne Bernays and Pamela Painter. Bernays and Painter are acclaimed writers and writing teachers and I used to have a copy of this book but got rid of it somewhere along the line. I'm taking a 10-week fiction writing class in Boston right now and realized I need this not just for my class but for my writing life.

That's it!What did you add to your collection this week? What are you reading? Have a great weekend!

Congratulations on winning Solo! I hoped to win it, as it has been on my radar since the Commonwealth Writer's Prize last year. Enjoy!

Solo sounds good. I'm still waiting for my LibraryThing read to come. It usually doesn't take this long. Hmm. I bet the mail carrier is reading it!

Feel better, I've been pretty sniffy and gross myself this week

Hope you feel better soon. Looks like you are feeling a bit creative?

I had one book come into the house this week and it was a gift from author Rosy Thornton of her latest The Tapestry of Love. SQUEEEEE!

Both of these sound promising. Hope you are feeling better by now.
