Weekly Discoveries #3

Here are this week's discoveries. As always, many come from other bloggers' book reviews, but others are my own finds.

In case you're wondering about the huge number of books on my Weekly Discoveries lists: I'm using these lists to keep track of what catches my attention as I read reviews (online and in print) , participate in book lists, and wander through bookstores. Some books are recommendations from friends and family. The lists are here so I can browse them before I hit the library or make a trip to the store. No more little bits of paper that always seen to go missing.

That said, it's ironic that this week I have a small list. I had a tough workweek and thus not much time to browse reviews!

Book Suggestions
Champlain's Dream by David Hackett Fischer (biography, history)
Wife in the North by Judith O'Reilly (autobiography)

Authors to Check Out
Lori G. Armstrong (PI mystery series)

Books Bought or Borrowed
The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry (fiction)
Illuminated by Matt Bronleewe (fiction, 1st in series)

I think this - Weekly Discoveries - is neat. You should make it into a round robin! I could benefit from something like this. :)

I've heard really good things about Wife in the North - it looks intriguing.

Thanks for your comment on my blog :o)

I think it is kinda funny that you are also interested in some of my favorite hobbies: reading (of course), food and photography. I am not by ANY MEANS a very good photographer, but I enjoy it a lot. I am a fairly good cook, although I seldom have the time to really go out there in the kitchen and do something special.

LOL... This is why FRIDAY FINDS has really grown my own TBR list! I've used my FF meme in a similar way, as a way to keep track of what books I'd like to read in the future (without all those little scraps of paper that always seem to get lost!). LOL.

Thanks for stopping by. I read all comments and may respond here, via e-mail, or on your blog. I visit everyone who comments, but not necessarily right away.
