Friday Finds is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading.
I’ve seen ads for the film The Reader based on the book of the same name by Bernhard Schlink; I thought, “I’ll have to read the book before I see the movie,” which generally means that I’ll end up renting the DVD months down the road. Then I read this review over at My Friend Amy’s and knew I had to add the book to my wish list right away … then to my TBR stack … then to my nightstand! Maybe I’ll see the film on the big screen after all, instead of Netflix. Another bonus – it will fit nicely into the War Through the Generations Challenge.
Jill at Breaking the Spine had a Booking Through Thursday post with her list of “the best” books of 2008. Since I agree with her choices of Tomato Girl and Olive Kitteridge, and Loving Frank is waiting for me on the bookcase … I’m adding her other two picks, which are:
Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee, which just came out in paperback, and …
The Distance Between Us by Bart Yates
What books were added to your wish list this week?
