Friday Finds / Weekly Discoveries (Feb. 27)

Here's what caught my eye this week: As always, some are from fellow bloggers and some are my own discoveries. I've also noted if the book is available in other formats.

For those new to my blog: I list all the books that attract my attention during the week. Some I'll read, many I won't. And later, I might not even remember why I thought I'd like a particular title or author.

For more Friday Finds or to join in the meme, visit MizB at Should Be Reading.

I spotted Christopher Barzak too! I've ordered one of his books - I'm really looking forward to reading it.

I love Robin McKinley -- I just read her book, Sunshine, and will be posting about it later. Good fun!

I went through a Robin McKinley phase a few years back-she is a favorite of mine with her fairytale re-tellings. You should definitely read at least one by her!

I actually won a Christopher Barzak book earlier this week, so I am very anxious to read him as well.

I have heard great things about Robin McKinley but have yet to read one of her books. Do you know which book would be good to read first?

I was reading about American Rust earlier this week (somewhere). Have a great weekend.

Hold on here. Have you gotten a Kindle? I'd like to read Songs of the Missing too.

Sadly no Kindle, just helping out my readers!! I'm waiting for a uniform format . . . and for a better economy.

Anna 2/27/09, 1:50 PM  

Ooh! Another Beverly Lewis book! I have all of the books in her previous Amish series, and I can't wait for the next one!

Thanks for giving me some new author names to check out. I am headed off for my weekly visit to the book store tomorrow so this will definitely be a help!

I like the way you did this post! Sometimes when I look back at my lists I wonder why I thought some books were appealing. :)
