Friday Finds


As much as I love books, sometimes I just can't find anything to read. Are you ever like that? If you are, check out these links. I bet you'll find a whole lot that sounds good.

Happy Weekend, friends.

Hey, thanks--I just signed up at Whichbook! The first book mentioned in "Fresh Delivery" (Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter) was one of my favorite reads last year.

Mac n' Janet said...

Thank you, I really liked the looks of Whichbook and will probably sign up there. I'm frequently looking for new books and book suggestions.

These are two great links. Thanks. I'm a slow reader, so I tend to choose my reading material with care knowing that we'll be together for quite some time.

I'm reading a series that a student loaned me. The books are by Michael Scott (I think) and are based on a character mentioned in the Harry Potter books... Nicholas Flamel. They've been rather entertaining although the second one, The Magician, had a fight scene that went on a little too long. In the third book, The Sorceress, William Shakespeare and Joan of Arc make an appearance.

Me? I've got the best librarian in the world. She always has a book she wants me to read or something she thinks I might enjoy. Nothing like a great librarian!

Isa Lisboa said...

Last few months, I've got carried away and bought a big stock of books, so now I have a lot to read... :)
But the links are great, thanks! I'll check them every once and a while!

Thanks, Relyn. I'm always on the lookout for something new!

GraceGal said...

Oh boy. Do I dare check out these sites? I Love books :)
Thanks for your encouragement on my blog, Relyn.

Love the poster!!

Jenny Woolf said...

Right now I have several books to read but none of them are grabbing me yet. I don't like being in that situation :) I prefer one book that I can't put down. Still, I will persevere.

Tracy said...

Oooo... I like this! Thanks for the tip, Relyn! Me too, much as I love books & reading, there are those occasional time when it's not always easy to find the next read. For a while now I've been in a non-fiction reading mode. I could do with some stories soon. :o) Happy weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

A Cuban In London said...

I can sympathise with that feeling. Sometimes the problem with me is that I have so many books to read and I just don't know which one to pick up. What I tend to do on those occasions is to re-read a favourite one. It usually spurs me on.

Greetings from London.

Hi Relyn,

Surprise, surprise! Thanks for thinking of me, for stopping by to say hello and for your good wishes.
Life is OK and we keep fingers crossed. Right now we're looking forward to the shop's 5th birthday next month!

Have been looking back through your posts and have loved your Sunday Morning Poetry choices.

Bookwise, I'm currently reading The Oracle by Valerio Massimo Manfredi. (A little late, I know.) I enjoy novels that weave history into the story. Have also been enjoying Phillipa Gregory's trilogy about the York and Lancaster queens.

Take care and keep spreading your joy!

Jeanne said...

Oh Awesome! I am always on the lookout for a good new book. Will check these out. Thanks for sharing and hope you are having a lovely weekend filled with joy!

Amy said...

Fabulous links!

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

I never have that problem. I have so many stacks of books waiting to be read, most of them must feel like orphans. I wish I read faster and could get through a book a day. Or even a week. Tell me what you've been reading lately!
K.

I have this print! It is in a frame, on one of the shelves in my bookcase! I could not resist when I first saw it on Etsy.

Deborah Carr said...

My gracious...I've never run out. Always a stack by my bed waiting to be read. And most often, I find myself reading several at a time (although I'm trying to 'focus' more these days...I'm down to 3 right now. At my most manic stage last winter, I had 9 on the go at once.Simply ridiculous.)

susanna said...

Oooh, thanks for the links, Relyn. I hadn't heard of them before.

Btw, I've read three really good books this year:

Water for Elephants (I can see why Hollywood made it into a movie although I have yet to watch it)

The Night Circus (a visual feast AND I heard that it's going to be made into a film - hurray!)

The Book Thief (I'm still thinking of the characters. It gives another perspective of WWII, from the side of Germans.)

Oldies, but Goodies
