Free Friday Reading Recommendations

Free Friday Reading Recommendations:

My best recommendation for today is a fascinating, well-written article in today’s Arizona Republic about Sarah Polley Arizona_Republic_20130607_P01_4, a filmmaker who reveals family, legacy and complicated truth in her documentary “Stories We Tell,” in large part about her eccentric mother as told by family members.  I’ve always found it intriguing how members of the same family can have completely different versions of growing up—how they remember parents and certain events that took place.  Apparently, Polley agrees.  Says Polley in the article:  “I was amazed at how many of us were telling the story in totally different ways to people in our lives.  I think I wanted to tell a story about the way we tell stories and our need to tell stories and the way everyone has discrepancies in stories within their lifespan inexplicably within their families.”  So worth the read and, if you’re lucky enough to live in Phoenix, it’s playing at Harkins Camelview.  If you see it, let me know what you think.

Barnes and Nobel Nook features Free Friday downloads once a week. Today’s Free Friday download is A Blood Seduction by Pamela Palmer, and there are a bunch you can download for under $3.  I don’t know about you, but I’ll download anything for free or cheap!  Well… within reason, that is.  : )   Free downloads have opened up my reading to different genres and topics I might not otherwise have explored.  What have you read recently in your list of free downloads?
