Friday Finds - I Have a Disease, a Book Disease

I have been WAY behind (that's an understatement) on catching up on my favorite blogs so this week's Friday Finds is books o' plenty. And I haven't even finished reading all the blogs yet! These are all of the discoveries I have made in July thus far-

from My Friend Amy:

Stop Me if You've Heard This One Before by David Yoo

from A Garden Carried in the Pocket:

Yoga for Body, Breath, and Mind: A Guide to Personal Reintegration by A.G. Mohan
(I love yoga and I love jenclair's yoga book reviews!)

from Today's Adventure:

The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

from Melissa's Bookshelf:

Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham
(Melissa is the first one to actually attract my interest to this book, as neither of us read much chick lit and she liked it. Maybe I should try it out, too.)

I have some sort of book collecting disease. I wonder if there is a cure.


  1. What a lot of Friday Finds! Lucky you!

    I found Holly's inbox in one of my other FF's - still got to read it yet, but it looks great!

    Have a great weekend! My Friday Fill in can be found HERE!

    And here's my Friday Find

  2. I have this disease also. Luckily for M, I take it to the library instead of the bookstore! My WoW books? Then I go to the bookstore.

    My Friday Finds are here, I'll be back later to check out more your finds.

  3. You have certainly put together quite some list. I love the title Come on Shore and We Will Kill You and Eat You. Lovely.

  4. I have the same disease and I don't wanna find a cure! You found some great books.

  5. This is a great list; glad you're catching up! :--)

  6. Sassy Brit- Thanks!

    Book Dragon- Yes, I am on a book buying ban (except for that one day I bought 4 for $12, oops but it WAS a good deal...)

    Nicole- Isn't that title crazy? We will kill you and eat you. I think it wins the prize for creepiest book title of the year.

    Bermudaonion- Yeah I do have Stage 4 book coveting disease. Hey, there are much worse diseases, right!

    rhapsodyinbooks- Thanks! I am glad I am catching up, too. I am glad I am getting out of my funk.

  7. So many good ones! I hope you do get a chance to read One More Year. It's really good.

  8. Nice posting. Do you know about these yoga books?


  9. Yikes, that is a lot of new ones for my list. Falling; Simpson looks really good. Thanks

  10. There is no cure that I've found, just go with it!! I wish I could deduct book purchases on my taxes- that would be helpful.

  11. There is NO cure for a book addiction. The only treatment is a steady dose of reading - or a 12 step program, but really, why bother with that when reading is so fun? (it's just the money....)

  12. Garden Spells ftw! Personally, I loved that book. :)

    Remember admitting you have a problem is the first step. ;)
