Friday Finds, 16 Jan

I've been so busy the past week and haven't been able to participate in Friday Finds but here's my latest discovery for the week:

Self Help Stuff That Works by Adam Khan
I love self help books. Found this on some time ago and the reviews are positive. Can you believe they don’t sell this book in any of the bookstore in Malaysia? Buying this on Amazon would be way too expensive so I’ll have to wait and see if it will appear in any of the bookstores in the future. If you’d like to read a couple of chapters from the book, click here.

Edward Trencom’s Nose
What attracted me to this book was the title. I was curious about how a story can revolve around a person’s nose. It turns out the book is about a man’s ability to nose out good food. Not sure if I’ll read it though. Click here to check out the book review from Guardian UK.

Reading Like A Writer
This was recommended to me by a lady who sat next to me while I was doing my manicure/pedicure session (a rare occasion for me). I was reading a book while waiting for my nails to dry, she was interested in the book I was reading and we started talking. Turns out she’s an avid reader and we ended up talking about books for almost an hour. I’m no writer but I wouldn’t mind understanding the skills of reading like a writer. For more information on the book, click here to visit Harper Collin’s website.

Great books you've got for yourself! I've got Reading Like A Writer. :)

You do? Is it any good? One of the few books that I will read soon is How to Read Literature like a Professor, apparently that's good too.

Alice Teh said...

Yes and I've also read How to Read Literature Like a Professor and both were good. I hope you'll enjoy them. :)
