Friday Finds

I've seen so many bloggers participate in Friday Finds, I want to join in the fun! I've added quite a few books to my wishlist and TBR stack this week...
  • Sucks to be Me by Kimberly Pauley - discovered via Iliana, who is actually hosting a give-away for this so I'm not buying it just yet, maybe I'll win! :-)

  • Seek the Fair Land by Walter Macken - an Irish friend recommended this to me after I read Joseph O'Connor's Star of the Sea and decided I wanted to read more historical books set in Ireland. Apparently Seek the Fair Land is something Irish kids read at school. It's the first installment in a trilogy so I sure hope I like it, I just ordered it from Amazon.

  • The Vanishing by Tim Krabbe - I got this from the library as I was browsing for titles for the RIP III challenge. This one is by a Dutch author as well and I've never read anything by a Dutch author, I don't think. It's a now-famous story about a woman vanishing while on holiday in France. Sounds chilling!

  • Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. Head over to Nymeth's and see how much interest in this non-fiction book she raised!
Thanks to MizB for the fun idea!

I'm sorry didn't pull up your number! Hopefully though the book will still find it's way to your stacks. It's so cute.
