Friday Finds (08/28/09)

Hmmm...more books this week. I can't help myself, especially when most of these were 80% off...From the back cover of PS, I Love You, by Cecelia Ahern
Holly and Gerry are the kind of married couple that others envy. Then, at the age of 30, Gerry is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Holly doesn't know how she'll go on without him, and in truth, she doesn't want to. But Gerry has other plans for Holly. Months after Gerry's death, Holly receives a package of letters that he's left for her, instructing her to perform a series of unexpected tasks. With the help of the letters---and her fun, quick-witted girlfriends and a raucously endearing family that smothers, loves, and drives her crazy---Holly wobbles, weaves, and jokes her way toward a new life, even larger than the one that she'd been forced to leave behind.

Assigned to write his autobiography, high school senior Rob Radkovitz decides to "listen" back on his life. As he remembers the voices of his younger self, his quirky family, and his closest friends, one stands apart-the haunting voice of his long-absent father, left behind on a single tape from one of his radio shows.

Welcome to New York City's Upper East Side, where my friends and I all live in huge fabulous apartments and go to exclusive single-sex private schools. We aren't always the nicest people in the world, but we make up for it in looks and taste.

It's time to fill out our college applications...Not applying to the Ivy Leagues is not an option, and not getting into them would be a total embarrassment....But I know a few girls who aren't going to let the pressure get them down. After all, no one really wants to to to college a virgin.

You know you love me,
gossip girl

I hope you had some great finds...HAPPY readings!!!
