Book Deals for August 17th

In today’s deals:

Mama Day
– This book just jumped out of me because of the description. Then come to find out it is by the same author as “The Women of Brewster House”, which I loved and reviewed not long ago. Definitely seems like a good pick!

A Land More Kind Than Home
– I mainly was interested in this book deal because the setting is in North Carolina, and that is where I now live. I think it is extra meaningful to read books that are set where you live. Makes you feel more connected to the characters, and if the author does a good job, you will be able to imagine the scenario perfectly since you live in the backdrop. Plus it has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon!

Gulag: A History
– This is the book I decided to purchase. It is a Pulitzer Prize winning book on a topic that is not discussed enough. The Nazi concentration camps are a large focus of many books, but not often are the concentration camps of the Soviet Union discussed. This is mainly because we turned a blind eye to the crimes our allies committed during WWII.

Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit
– I just really like the title of this book and it seems like a good “feel good” sort of book.
