Piling Up on Friday 2/3

This weekly meme is hosted here at Finding Your Gibbee. Feel free to play along, and post a link to your blog in the comments below. List all the books you have added to your To Be Read List this week. (These don't have to be titles you have actually purchased.)

My list for 2/3/2012

Home Front by Kristin Hannah
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillip Sendker (my favorite cover of the week)
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain
Wanted: Gentleman Bank Robber by Dane Batty
Before The Poison by Peter Robinson


  1. Looking at that cover of Before the Poison I can't help but wonder: what's up with this trend of book covers lately that have women on them with their head's not showing? It disturbs me, I must say...

    Here's my list!

  2. The author of “Quiet” is an admitted introvert. She did a wonderful job countering misconceptions about introversion. As an introvert myself I have always felt inferior at school and work compared to my very talkative and outgoing peers. Introverts are not people with a personality flaw. They are people who recharge their batteries by being alone while extroverts recharge theirs by socializing. Introverts are thinkers, sensitive, serious, thoughtful, and reserved people. While they appear quiet and repelling, their minds are actually racing with creative ideas and planning their next exciting project rather than wasting time with idle small talk.
