BOOKISH FINDS: The Charity Shelf

EtheringtonHeaders-Bookish Finds

One of the things I love about my internship is that I’m constantly surrounded by books. There are shelves everywhere I look, and on those shelves are stories that I would really love to read. The other thing is that I’m surrounded by people who love books and are generous with them too. We have a charity shelf in the lobby of the building where people leave books once they’ve finished them for other people to enjoy. It’s a great system, and I’ve picked up some books I’ve wanted to read in for a while:

  • Lion by Saroo Brierley
  • What Belongs to You by Garth Greenwell

Lion by Saroo Brierley

My auntie and I were talking about Lion a few days before it appeared on the shelf. She mentioned how emotional the film was and how good Dev Patel was in it, and I said how much I wanted to watch it but was waiting until I read the book. And there it was. I’ve become really drawn to narrative non-fiction recently and I think this will be another brilliant read.

What Belongs to You by Garth Greenwell

This book didn’t even make it onto the charity shelf. One of my work buds produced it from his back and I instantly recognised the cover and was said ‘I want to read that’. So he gave it to me. I’ve had it on my Amazon wish list for a while now. I don’t know whether I would have necessarily bought it myself, but I’m happy to have it!

 

Have you bought any books this week?
