Saturday Shout-Out

On my travels through the blogging world, I find many books that pique my interest. I always add them to my wish list immediately but I tend to forget who deserves the blame credit for inspiring me to add them to my list (and to whom my husband would like to send the bill when I get around to actually buying them). So each Saturday I'm going to try and keep better track, link to my fellow book ferreter-outers (I know, not a word but useful nonetheless), and hopefully add to some of your wish lists too. Here are the latest additions to my wish list as of this Saturday:

The Iambics of Newfoundland by Robert Finch was mentioned at A Striped Armchair.

An Equal Stillness by Francesca Kay was mentioned at Hello, My Name Is Alice.

The Pursuit of Other Interests by Jim Kokoris was mentioned at Breaking the Spine.

Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter by Lisa Patton was mentioned at Breaking the Spine.

Americans in Space by Mary E. Mitchell was mentioned at Breaking the Spine.

Once on a Moonless Night by Dai Sijie was mentioned at Book Chatter and Other Stuff....

Meeting Mr. Wrong by Stephanie Snowe was mentioned at Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia.

The Music Room by William Fiennes was mentioned at dovegreyreader scribbles.

Remembering the Bones was mentioned at A Life in Books.

The Finishing Touches by Hester Browne was mentioned at S. Krishna's Books.

Slept Away by Julie Kraut was mentioned at S. Krishna's Books.

Evenings at the Argentine Club by Julia Amante was mentioned at All About {n}.

The Brightest Star in the Saky by Marian Keyes was mentioned at Breaking the Spine.

What goodies have you added to your wish lists recently? Make your own list and leave a comment here so we can all see who has been a terrible influence inspiring you lately.


  1. I requested The Iambics of Newfoundland from the library. :)

  2. I really enjoyed THE FINISHING TOUCHES (as you know), so I really hope you do too!

  3. Some of those are tempting! Love the cover of The Music Room.

  4. What a lot of great books you found. I'm glad I could contribute to your growing wishlist! I've had The Iambics of Newfoundland on my wishlist for awhile but haven't actually gotten it yet. Another NFLD book I have on my TBR pile is Theatre of Fish by John Gimlette, in case you're in the mood for more. I'm from Newfoundland so I'm partial to reading about my home province, especially now that I live in the Southern US. :-)

  5. Thanks for the link! :) That cover for Whistlin' Dixie in a Nor'easter is so cute. :D And the one for Once on a Moonless Night makes me want to read it!


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
