Friday Finds: Some Love, Some Malaria, and Leakey’s Three ‘Angels’

Friday Finds by Should Be Reading

What great books did you hear about/discover this past week?


First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria: How a Peace Corps Poster Boy Won My Heart and a Third World Adventure Changed My Life

First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria by Eve Brown-Waite

I love travel stories, and add a little love adventure and you’re looking at a good book.  This book not only caught my eye because of the cover, but Goodreads even recommended it to me because of my love of humor.  So if it’s as good as it looks, I will finish it in no time!


Walking With the Great Apes: Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, Birute Galdikas

Walking with the Great Apes by Sy Montgomery

I have already read the wonderful biography of Dain Fossey, Woman in the Mists, I have about five Jane Goodall books waiting to be read, and I know a little bit about Birute Gladikas.  So how in the world would I not like this book!  I am so excited to have found it and I know I will fall in love with it and my three woman heroes even more!


Reflections of Eden: My Years with the Orangutans of Borneo

Reflections of Eden by Birute Galdikas

And we round off my Friday Finds with a book by Birute Galdikas, one of the wonderful ladies featured in the book above, and about her adventures with the Borneo orangutans.  I know little about this one of “Leakey’s Angels”, as I have studied Dian Fossey and Jane Goodall.  Now, I will add Birute, the woman with the orangutans, to my list of heroes!


These are the three books I have found this week.  I can not wait to read these wonderful finds once all my other TBR books are finished and once I am completed with NaNo.  Which, by the way, I have a word count of 35K!  So I’m very close to my 50K goal!  

Have a Great Weekend All!
