Black Friday Finds

I'm hard at work at the bookstore today; I hope you're enjoying Black Friday and find some time to patronize your local independent bookstore this weekend. Here are this week's new books:

The Time It Snowed in Puerto Rico is a coming of age story from writer and Twitter pal Sarah McCoy. She has a new book coming out soon but first I want to read her debut novel.

Tinker, Tailer, Soldier Spy is John Le Carré's classic spy novel, soon to be a movie. I've been curious about this book (and the other George Smiley books) for a while, and finally put one aside for myself.

The Wilding is Benjamin Percy's debut novel following his collection of short stories. I've read a few of the stories from his collection Refresh, Refresh, and I think he's an incredible and original writer. The plot of this book concerns three generations of men who go on one last camping trip in the wilds of Oregon. Sounds dark and wonderful.

Have a great weekend and let me know what you picked up this weekend! More Friday Finds at
