Friday Find (February 6)


What great books have you added to your wish list this week? Share your Friday Finds at Should Be Reading.


Ami McKay, author of The Birth House (which I still haven’t read!) says this about Absent by Sherri Vanderveen: “Honest to the core, Absent is a moving, heart-changing journey through memories and family secrets. This is a tale you won’t soon forget.”

I came across this book on the Penguin Canada Book Club site.

  4. I'm interested to know how the word "absent" ties in with the little girl playing the piano on the cover. Hmmm...

  7. I finally got my hands on a copy of The Birth House (thanks to fellow blogger Myckyee), which I can't wait to read (although there are lots of other books that will probably come first)!

    Thanks, everybody, for your comments!
