Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.
A Mother’s Trial by Nancy Wright
Why I have it: Spotted on a #6Degrees chain at Marelden.
Summary: True crime account of a woman who was diagnosed with Münchhausen Syndrome by Proxy and put on trial for the death of her adopted baby daughter.
I’m thinking: Maybe. I’m not much of a true crime reader but the opening chapters are compelling.
Mapping Manhattan by Becky Cooper
Why I have it: Spotted on Jenny’s #6Degrees chain.
Summary: Becky Cooper walked the city from end to end, asking strangers to fill in blank maps to illustrate ‘their Manhattan’.
I’m thinking: Yes. I basically can’t resist maps.
The Sea, the Sea by Iris Murdoch
Why I have it: No idea.
Summary: Theatre-great retires, plans to write a memoir, things go horribly wrong.
I’m thinking: No – despite all the praise (and a Booker prize), there is too much navel-gazing in the opening chapter.
