Friday Finds 02/07

Spread the love

Okay I haven’t done a Friday Finds in a month because I was without internet access for two weeks and I forgot a few weeks now. In fact technically I’m writing this on Saturday because I forgot again but I’m back dating it so it’ll be on the right day.

So this list is very long. All links are to the reviews/posts that I found out about the book at.

The first one isn’t even a review, it’s just from Reader’s Respite, Diversifying the Bookshelves feature:

Accomodating Broccoli in the Cemetery or why can’t anybody spell? by Vivian Cook

I’m quite a good speller and I personally find it important. If you see an error in my blog, it’s most likely a typo. I don’t always remember to hit spell check. So this book intrigues me.

Walking Through Walls by Phillip Smith

Found through a review on Trish’s Reading Nook. It’s a memoir of a father who had out of body experiences and other supernatural talents.

Mommy I’m Still In Here by Kate McLaughlin

I found this through Violet Crush. I’m very into books and memoirs about mental illness as it’s a subject close to my heart and mind. This one’s about Bipolar disease.

Beautiful Child and Ghost Girl by Torey Hayden

These are two books by Torey Hayden that I haven’t read yet that were reviewed at Bogormen. I really need to find the time to read these.

Lifelines by C.J. Lyons

This is a fiction book but the characters are all medical staff and it looks really good. I saw this at Reading With Monie.

Houdini by T.J. Banks

Also found at Reading With Monie, this is the story of a cat.

Righting the Mother Tongue: From Old English To Email, The Tangled Story of English Spelling by David Wolman

This long title was found at The Written World and is the story of English spelling. If you read above, you’ll know that I am intrigued by this subject.

Only in Canada, You Say: A Treasury of Canadian Language by Katherine Barber

Also found at The Written World, another language book, even better, about Canadians! I too (just like Kailana says) like to read about “Canadian” Language. She said she found that things she said, she assumed everyone in Canada said when really it’s only in her area. Well I’ve found it the opposite, maybe because I’m in South Western Ontario, which is quite close to American culture, but most of the “Canadian” terms I’ve never heard anyone speak, except eh?

In an Instant by Lee and Bob Woodruff

Found this one at A Comfy Chair and a Good Book. It is a memoir about Bob’s serious brain injury and his recovery from the incident.

Dog Lost by Ingrid Lee
This is in a post about two dog books. I’d read the other one too but it’s this one that really captures my interest. It’s from A Patchwork of Books. It’s about a cause that is near to my heart, the plight of the pitbull.

Poop by Nicola Davies

Reviewed at Dog Ear Diary. I’m always interested in the intriquises of normal everyday things.
