Free Friday Recommendations

It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with all the memoirs on my list, and all those that are being recommended to me.  Can I just take some time off?  Please?

I downloaded a list of “Must Read Memoirs of 2012 – So Far!” from the Book Page’s blog The Book Case, where they claim you can “Discover Your Next Great Book”.  Seems to me I might discover my next great career… professional book reader.  Since I read a lot of memoirs, I was happy, yet surprised, that I had only read ONE on the list:  The Other Side of Suffering, which I talked about a few Fridays ago.  I won’t list them all, but here are some I am adding to my pipeline:  Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelson (anyone other than me want to secretly be the Next Food Network Star? Between that and my new career as professional book reader, I’m not sure I’ll have much more time to blog…)…. add that to:

Burn Down the Ground by Kambri CrewsThe Great Northern Express by Howard Frank Mosher; Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son’s First Son by Ann Lamott; and Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen.

Some day I’ll tell you about the memoir I’m writing about one of my family members… it relates to cake.

Until then…

And, because it’s Barnes and Noble Free Friday Download for the Nook, here’s the one available for today:

Each one of Dale Brown’s blistering Dreamland thrillers is more exciting than the last. In today’s Free Fridays selection—Raven Strike —a ripped-from-the-headlines plot will keep you enthralled from start to finish.   When a band of CIA agents goes rogue—breaking all of the rules while on an anti-terrorist mission in the Sudan—a deadly drone falls into the wrong hands. Enter Director Jonathon Reid, who is suddenly in the dark about the details behind this catastrophic mistake. The closer he gets to uncovering what went wrong, the more he realizes that there’s something sinister going on at the CIA, and forces are aligned to make sure he doesn’t find out the truth.

In Raven Strike, find out why Clive Cussler calls Dale Brown “the best military adventure writer in the country,” then explore his other pulse-pounding adventures.
