Friday Finds (03/05/10)

Friday Finds at the Store is a meme hosted by Jennay at My Tea Time is Book Time. It is totally easy and everyone can join. Basically just post the books you found at the bookstore or library. Now others can see the great finds you had and maybe they will pick it up on their next bookstore/library run. HAPPY readings!!!

Number the Stars From the back cover of Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend, Ellen Rosen, often think about life before war. But it's now 1943, and their life in Copenhagen is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching in their town.

The Nazis won't stop. The Jews of Denmark are being "relocated," so Ellen moves in with the Johansens and pretends to be part of the family.

Then Annemarie is asked to on a dangerous mission. Somehow she must find the strength and courage to save her best friend's life. There's no turning back now.

Because of Winn-Dixie From the back cover of Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
One Summer's day, ten -year-old India Opal Buloni goes down to the local supermarket for some groceries-and comes home with a dog.

Winn-Dixie is no ordinary dog. Big, skinny and smelly he may be, but he also has the most winning smile. It's because of Winn-Dixie that Opal gets to know some very surprising people and starts to make new friends. It's because of Winn-Dixie that she finally dares to ask her father about her mother, who left when Opal was three.

In fact, just about everything that happens that summer is because of Winn-Dixie.

What did you find???

(these books were bought from a store called FullyBooked)

***Now go and grab your fave cup of tea (or whatever beverage you prefer) and HAPPY readings***
