Friday Finds is hosted by MizB. I have some big finds today and would like to share with everyone.
Out from the library and walk two shops down to a charity shop, I saw several Salman Rushdie’s books on shelf. If there is a moment to collect Rushdie collection, now is the time, The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Shalimar the Clown, East, West….
yet it was only The Enchantress of Florence that I bought.
Here are the rest of my finds:
The Black Swan, Nassim Nicholas Taleb – Taleb writes about the highly probable. The man heralded to predict the banking crisis, I wanted to get into the head of Taleb to find out what he thinks about the impact on life’s other highly probable.
My Cousin Rachel, Daphne Du Maurier – Quite surprise to find the new edition here. I love Rebecca, this one looks set to follow the footstep of Rebecca too.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Lisa See – I have read Lisa See’s Peony in Love last year, so-so, but highly readable. I have no clue what this book is all about, but heard that it was better than her other books!
The Other Half Lives, Sophie Hannah – so many good reviews about Hannah’s thrillers mentioned on Blogosphere, this book is new and came with a dust jacket. Guess what? It’s a discarded copy from the Oxfordshire library. I still don’t see what’s wrong with the book except with the library stamp on it.
Still good conditioned 5 books with a fiver is surely a good find, don’t you think so?
