Welcome to this week's Friday Finds! Only
- A Study in Scarlet, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - This Baker Street Challenge post reminded me that I've never read the very first Sherlock Holmes story. Must fix that asap.
- The Selected Works of T.S. Spivit, by Reif Larsen - Medieval Bookworm says "This book is phenomenal. T.S. is a stunning character. He is clearly a genius but clearly a child at the same time; he makes amazing conclusions but then his child-logic can’t always keep up with his scientific mind. I found this fascinating. I’m no genius, but I truly felt that with T.S. I was having a peek into the mind of someone like Stephen Hawking, although much more understandable."
- The Discoverers, by Daniel Boorstin - This book is a review of many of the major discoveries throughout history. According to RebeccaReads, it is best read in small bites. Sounds like something to add to my "reference library" shelf.
- Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout - I've been hearing about this book for months without being particularly interested in reading it. However, it unexpectedly won the Pulitzer this year. That normally wouldn't mean anything to me, but this review at ReadStreet got me thinking that the writing may just be comparable to that in INTERPRETER OF MALADIES ... and THAT would really be something.
That's all for me for now. Hop over to MizB's for more Friday Finds, and have a great weekend!
