Friday Finds

Another interesting week of books. First up, I bought The Witches of Eastwick at River Run Books in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; River Run is one of my favorite indies outside the Boston area and lately I've become Twitter friends with two of the women who work there (If you're on Twitter you should follow them too- @readandbreathe and @MissLiberty, respectively) so it was fun to go visiting and, of course, buy a book! I received The Tricking of Freya from Macmillan; it's set in Iceland and looks fantastic. Can't wait to get to it.

I won G. Xavier Robillard's Captain Freedom in a HarperCollins giveaway, and my husband and I are currently arguing over who gets to read it first. I gave him my China Mieville galley that I snagged a week or so ago, so I think maybe I get first crack at Captain Freedom. And finally, Container Gardening, a volume of poetry, came my way courtesy of author (and neighbor and library patron) Ellen Steinbaum. I've started reading it and I'm really enjoying her poems.

Friday Finds lives over at Come play!

I don't normally like Updike but I love The Witches of Eastwick and have read it multiple times. I like the film also.
