Friday Finds ~ January 29th, 2010


This was my favorite meme to put together.  I like looking at the book covers and putting them all together.  It makes me want to go to the book store!  Friday Finds is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  While browsing fabulous 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 on my Kindle from



Incendiary by Chris Cleave
The Commoner: A Novel by John Burnham Schwartz
Indignation by Philip Roth
Reading Lolita In Tehran: A Memoir In Books by Azar Nafisi
One Thousand White Women ~ The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus
The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien
The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks
Midwives: A Novel by Chris Bohjalian

    1. Ni Kidding!! I have over 300 dang samples! It’s my new wish list really. I counted up how many books I have actually read on my Kindle since getting it almost a year ago (March ’09) and it’s only eight. I was a little surprised. I’m reading more on it this year though, that’s for sure. What have you read on yours so far and which samples did you download?

  1. I read Roth’s Indignation last year. He is such a fantastic writer but I can’t say that I liked this one very much. I was going to say “enjoyed” but even if you loved the book, I don’t know that “enjoy” would be a word you would use.

  2. Karen,

    “Reading Lolita in Tehran” was yummy. As a teacher, I found it very inspiring. I found myself analyzing the ways she got discussion and learning happening…it’s such an art.
