Friday Find (November 21)

What great books have you discovered this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.

I first spotted Pathologies: A Life in Essays by Susan Olding on the Mini Book Expo site, but I’d already claimed two books, so I couldn’t claim it too. Too bad because I love reading personal essays and these ones sound very good.


  1. I look forward to reading your review on this book. I enjoy the occasional good short story collection but I am picky. I usually need a trusted good reveiw first :D

  2. Sounds interesting. I like autobiography, so why not personal essays?

  3. That has happened to me a couple of times on the Mini Book Expo. The other day I saw a French lesson book and was disappointed that I already have two requested.

  4. I love the Mini Book Expo Site, but they have had problems with both books I've signed up for!! They just sent me an email saying I could sign up for a 3rd as the others haven't arrived yet!

    The book you received looks interesting!

  5. It does, doesn't it, Sherry!

    Icedream, when I posted this, I didn't actually have the book, but the editor has since offered to send it to me for review!

    Oh do try reading personal essays, Beth, if you like autobiographies or memoirs! Same thing, really, in a different format.

    Alyce, I know, it can be so frustrating, though I guess we shouldn't complain since we're getting these books for free.

    Wendi, that's weird, you're the second person to tell me that in the last short while. I haven't had any trouble with them so far (knock on wood), except I find it sometimes takes them a while to post my reviews (and the last time they posted one of mine, the link to my blog didn't work, argh!).
