Friday Finds- Of Course I Got *Something*

My Traitor's Heart, by Rian Malan. This book is a memoir and reportage by a descendant of one of the South African politicians responsible for creating apartheid. It's about the cost of hatred and violence through an examination of several murder cases. It caught my eye at Lorem Ipsum, my favorite used bookstore.

I bought a copy of Michael Holley's book War Room: The Legacy of Bill Belichick and the Art of Building the Perfect Team at Holley's signing event at the New England Mobile Book Fair. It's the first event I helped run and I might even read it someday!

That's it! Sunday's the big day, so we'll see if Santa brings me any books. Stay tuned! (Spoiler alert- I think there's a good chance!)

I'll be on the look out for the first book. I need to read more SA Literature.

My Traitor's Heart sounds really good! You made me laugh with War Room when you said you might actually read it.

You might read it?! Interesting books, good variety.

Happy Holidays!

You are like me, and can never pass up buying a book! I just bought three in the last few days, and I knew that I probably shouldn't have!

Happy Holidays Marie!
