It feels like I was just sitting here writing last week’s Friday Finds (well, not here exactly, since we’re in NJ for the Thanksgiving weekend and here is at my sister-in-law’s kitchen island; herelast week was home at the desk in my kitchen) … anyway, the week has really flown by, with Thanksgiving preparations and our fun pre-holiday events at the kids’ schools.
Well, here is a snapshot of my week in new books:
I was so excited to win the three volumes of The Paris Review Interviews from the National Book Critics Circle (NBCC). Their blog, Critical Mass, ran a contest and I was the first to correctly identify an excerpt of an interview with Joyce Carol Oates. Picador has just published the third volume (pictured here); they are a delight to read.
I’ll be reading The Islands of Divine Music(John Addiego) for a blog tour with Unbridled Books in December. Like all the Unbridled Books I’ve seen, this book has a cover that is so inviting; this one looks a little quirky and whimsical, just what I’m in the mood for!
