All that I am, all that I ever was…

I am more than my mental health. I am more than my homelessness. I am more than any one aspect of me. I am Addy. And this is…

Friday Finds (February 15)


FRIDAY FINDS showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased). Find out more on the blog Should be Reading.

Given I’ve been abnormally busy this week I haven’t been able to spend as much time in libraries and op-shops as I would have liked. However, I did squeeze in a visit to an op-shop that’s currently having a 50% off book sale. Courtesy of this sale I present my Friday Finds for this week:


Praise was the very first book I read on Australian soil. I have many wonderful memories of sitting on Elwood beach relishing this marvellous book and am looking forward to revisiting it in the near future. (Price 25 cents)

The Devil's Garden

Although I’m a fan of Richard Montanari, I think the main reason I picked up this book was the ridiculous blurb. I thought *every* man was a man with a past…or is that just me? (Price: 25 cents)

The Long Earth

Although I’ve never been the biggest Pratchett fan (the only book of his I’ve read is Good Omens), I couldn’t pass up this brand spanking new release. Plus, it sounds rather intriguing. (Price: $1)

The Penguin Book of Australian Short Stories

Short story collections can be a bit hit-and-miss so I tend to approach them with trepidation. However I love Patrick White, Peter Carey and Henry Lawson, so hopefully this will be more hit than miss. (Price: 25 cents)

Wild Minds - Stories of Outsiders and Dreamers

I’m an outsider, a dreamer, a misfit AND an eccentric. I am absolutely hopelessly heroic and you can bet your ass the love I follow is absolutely vital. Why else would I follow it? I *had* to get this book! (Price: 25 cents)

What books have you added to your TBR list this week?

  1. I love reading books I have read before, especially when they bring back good memories. I would kill to find books for 25 cents! I’m glad you did :)


    • I love when I can read a book over-and-over again. Some books (The Hotel New Hampshire, Memory and Dream, The Crow Road, Thongs) I’ve read dozens of times, partly because I just love them to pieces and partly because of all the wonderful memories attached to them :)

      The op-shop I mentioned is far and away the best in my vicinity. Whenever I come out of there I seem to be laden down with books, especially since they’ve had their 50% sale running!
