Friday Finds -- 3/12


My Friday Finds is the library book club's selection for April, American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld. Here is the Barnes and Noble description:
A kind, bookish only child born in the 1940s, Alice learned the virtues of politeness early on from her stolid parents and small Wisconsin hometown. But a tragic accident when she was seventeen shattered her identity and made her understand the fragility of life and the tenuousness of luck. So more than a decade later, when she met boisterous, charismatic Charlie Blackwell, she hardly gave him a second look: She was serious and thoughtful, and he would rather crack a joke than offer a real insight; he was the wealthy son of a bastion family of the Republican party, and she was a school librarian and registered Democrat. Comfortable in her quiet and unassuming life, she felt inured to his charms. And then, much to her surprise, Alice fell for Charlie.
What did you find this Friday? This meme is hosted by Should Be Reading.

I just bought this book! Don't know if I'll be able to read it in time for the bookclub, though.

This looks good. I read Prep a while ago and wasn't completely impressed but I might give her another shot.
