Friday Finds – April 3


Should Be Reading hosts this weekly event. This is my first time joining in. Normally I feel like I don’t have that much I’ve heard about or added to my collection, so I’ve chosen to pass on it.

But this weekend is the Library Book Sale and I had a gift card to Borders, so I did some shopping this afternoon. Figured it might be a great time to start joining in.
