Friday Finds—August 5, 2011

Friday FindsI started back to work this week and didn’t spend as much time scouting for books to add to my TBR pile, but I did find a few.

I came across [amazon_link id=”0312556934″ target=”_blank” ]Yankee Doodle Dixie[/amazon_link] by Lisa Patton at Peeking Between the Pages. What a beautiful, beautiful cover. I love the green in the dress next to the pretty peaches. Sort of a [amazon_link id=”B000QRIGLW” target=”_blank” ]Twilight[/amazon_link]-esque cover, I guess, but prettier. I discovered this book is actually a sequel to [amazon_link id=”B0044KN1EE” target=”_blank” ]Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter[/amazon_link], which is on sale on Kindle for just $2.99 right now. I snapped it up. Both books are now on my list.

I also found [amazon_link id=”0571226531″ target=”_blank” ]On Canaan’s Side[/amazon_link] by Sebastian Barry, which was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

Did you find any potentially good books this week?
