Friday Finds!

Four finds this Friday.

Iris Murdoch's novel A Fairly Honourable Defeat arrived via Bookmooch. I haven't read her in ages and this is as good an excuse as any.

Amitav Ghosh's The Hungry Tide also came from a Bookmooch swap. What would I do without Bookmooch?

My blogiversary was a couple of weeks ago and I treated myself to two things I really wanted- Howard Jacobson's The Finkler Question, which has been long-listed for the Man Booker Prize and until a day or two ago was not going to be published in the U.S., and an Everyman's Library edition of one of my favorite books, D.H. Lawrence's Sons and Lovers. That works for me!

What did you find this week?

I love Sons and Lovers.

Howard Jacobson's Kalooki Nights was a great read!

What a beautiful mix! Sons and Lovers with an Iris Murdoch. So very nice!

I have a copy of The Hungry Tide that I haven't gotten to yet, and I am excited to hear about the Murdoch, as she is a favorite. Happy reading!
