Friday Finds ~ February 5th, 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

Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Today’s Favorite Song

The Washington D.C. area is under a severe storm warning with an expected 24-30 inches of snow to fall between now and tomorrow evening at seven o’clock.  That is just INSANE!  We got six inches of snow last Saturday and an additional four inches fell Tuesday night.  So, to celebrate the winter wonderland that keeps on coming, I want to share one of my favorite songs about the white stuff that is a beautiful pain in the ass.  Snow from the movie musical White Christmas!
