Friday Finds #10

Friday Finds is a book meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
Friday Finds is a chance to share and show off the books you discovered during the week and would like to add to your reading list...


Or a place to simply feature the books you've actually purchased throughout the week and have added to your to be read pile!

This week, I purchased four books to add to my ever growing reading collection:

1. Peeling the Onion by Gunter Grass

I purchased the bargain priced, compact disc version of Gunter Grass's memoir. I was curious to learn more about this 1999 Nobel Prize winning author. Believe it or not, I've never read any of Gunter Grass's works. Perhaps after listening to Gunter Grass's memoir on audio compact disc, I'll move onto reading one of his novels.

2. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King

I purchased the unabridged, compact disc version of Stephen King's 'The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon' as I'd learned from my grandmother how much she had enjoyed reading this novel. So, thought it would be fun to listen to the audio version instead of reading it.

3. An O'Brien Family Christmas by Sherryl Woods

I purchased the bargain, hardcover version of this novel for under two dollars via I've never read anything by Sherryl Woods before. In fact, I've never even heard of her before. I was looking for some holiday reading material at a low price and this novel fit what I was looking for. The storyline sounds like a good one too, which is another reason for choosing this book.

4. Clean Gut: The Breakthrough Plan for Eliminating the Root Cause of Disease and Revolutionizing Your Health by
Alejandro Junger, M.D. 

I'm currently on a healing journey and choose this book to read. The book description/synopsis from Amazon is as follows:
In Clean Gut, Alejandro Junger, M.D, New York Times bestselling author of Clean and creator of the world-famous Clean Program, delivers a complete toolkit for reversing disease and sustaining life-long health.

All of today’s most-diagnosed ailments can be traced back to an injured and irritated gut. The gut is an intricate and powerful system, naturally designed to protect and heal the body every moment of every day  And yet for far too many of us, this remarkable system is in disrepair, which leads to all kinds of health problems—from extra pounds, aches and pains, allergies, mood swings, and lack of libido, to heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders, insomnia, and depression.

But we no longer have to be sick to get healthy. In this groundbreaking program, Alejandro Junger, M.D. explains how instead of treating the symptoms as they arise, we can preemptively attack disease before it takes root in the gut.

No matter your current state of health, you will benefit from this program: Clean Gut will help you put an end to everyday ailments, reverse chronic disease, and achieve true, long-lasting health.

So, which new books have you added to YOUR reading pile??
