Friday Finds-May 1



Should Be Reading asks you to share what books you discovered this week that interest you!


A new book was brought to my attention this week from ReadingGroupGuides.com. It is Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith! If you have visited my blog in the past I think you know how much I truly enjoy The No. 1 Lades Detective Agency series. I have been reading these with my book club, so I can't wait to tell them next week that we have another installment to look forward to!



Here is a summary of the book from Alexander McCall Smith's website:

Mma Ramotswe’s ever-ready tiny white van has recently developed a rather disturbing noise. Of course, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni–her estimable husband and one of Botswana’s most talented mechanics––is the man to turn to for help. But Precious suspects he might simply condemn the van and replace it with something more modern. Can she find a way to save her old friend?

In the meantime, Mma Makutsi discovers that her old rival Violet Sephotho, who could not have gotten more than fifty percent on her typing final at the Botswana Secretarial College, has set her sights on none other than Mma Makutsi’s fiancĂ©, Phuti Radiphuti. Can Mma Ramotswe’s intuition save the day? Finally, the proprietor of a local football team has enlisted the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency to help explain its dreadful losing streak. The owner of the team is convinced he as a traitor in his midst. But how is Mma Ramotswe, who has never seen a football match in her life, going to discern who is throwing the game? Help, it turns out, may come from an unexpected quarter.


Well I am just thrilled about this Friday Find! I know that I won't be reading it for awhile since we only read one of these a year and the last one we read was In the Company of Cheerful Ladies, but just knowing that it is coming up puts a smile on my face!

What have you found that has caught your eye this week?

This one is making the rounds. I love it when an author you absolutely love comes out with another book. It's very exciting!

I'm excited about this book too, although I've only read the first three books in this series so far!

I haven't caught up in the series but always enjoy reading these books. I wish that I had HBO to see the series based on the booos as I've heard they are wonderful

I haven't read that series, but I loved his Isabel Dalhousie series.

I've only read the first one of this series but I'd sure like to read more one of these days.
