Friday Finds ~ October 23rd, 2009


It seemed like FOREVER since I participated in Friday Finds and it turns out it has.  The last Friday Finds I posted here was back on August 14th!  So, without further ado, here are my Friday Finds for October 23rd, 2009. 

Friday Finds is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  While browsing book blogs,, Washington,, various other places on the Internet, and getting recommendations from friends, these are the books that either made it to my wish list this week or I downloaded the samples onto my Kindle from




The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood
The Children’s Book by A.S. Byatt
The Piano Tuner by Daniel Mason
The Path of Minor Planets: A Novel by Andrew Sean Greer
Cost: A Novel by Roxana Robinson
Tell Me Something True by Leila Cobo
An Education by Nick Hornby
Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby
In A Perfect World by Laura Kasischke
Seeing Things by Patti Hill

  1. Karen, thanks so much for the shout out! I love the new look and feel of your blog, so perfect to match your gorgeous backyard with all the fall foliage. I think it is totally reasonable that you weren’t able to keep up with blogging or reading as much now that you’re a) not on a small island in the middle of the pacific, and b) that you now are homeowners and your hubster is busy keeping bad guys off the streets! I’m sure in 2010, you will have other distractions, but that’s why we consider these kinds of personal challenges just that– a challenge! If it were easy, it wouldn’t feel so rewarding knowing you’re making sacrifices to get to your goal. Either way, whether you make it or not, I still think you’re the cat’s pajamas! xoxo, LibraryLove
