Friday Finds 02/27/09

Welcome to Friday Finds! Here's what I've added to my TBR list this week ...
  1. The Kingmaking, by Helen Hollick - Medieval Bookworm loved this new and more realistic take on the King Arthur legend, and I have to say that is sounds very good to me to.

  2. The Leviathan Chronicle, by Christof Laputka - according to, this contemporary fantasy novel is currently a serialized podcast and is "top notch podcast drama"
I've added a few books to kiddo's list too ...
  1. Baseball Saved Us, by Ken Mochizuki - this story takes place in the Japanese Internment camps of World War II - kiddo loves learning about anything WWII-related

  2. Passage to Freedom: The Sugihara Story, by Ken Mochizuki - if you've ever thought that the Japanese didn't do anything good during WWII you must go read Maw Books' review - this book it at the top of my list for kiddo right now

For more Friday Finds drop by Miz B's blog. Have a wonderful weekend all.

I had the Kingmaking on my Friday Find also.

Passage to Freedom sounds like a good story. How sad that the inspiration for it was the comment, “I didn’t know the Japanese did anything good during World War II.” I would assume that same person didn't know anything about the 442nd Infantry Regiment either, "the most highly decorated military unit in the history of the United States Armed Forces," made up mainly of Japanese Americans.
