AUTUMN 2013 So many books to talk about!
In September I read 30 books, one for each day. (Although, in reality, there were some days filled with print, from dawn ’til dusk, so that that other days could be occupy me in other ways.) That is a personal record for me.
I’ve finished reading the books shortlisted for the 2013 Toronto Book Awards and am currently reading my way through this year’s Giller longlist (and other prizelists).
Mixed with the excitement of adding some new titles to my reading stacks, is the disappointment that some of my favourite books in this reading year have not yet appeared on the prizelists. I wish there could be more awards, more bookchat, more, more, more. Still, there is more reading. And that’s something to relish.
On Wednesdays the focus on the works of authors appearing at the International Festival of Authors continues. And on most Fridays, another installment of A Fainter Footprint.
The next installment of the Alice Munro reading project will resume with The Love of a Good Woman at the end of October. Join me for a single story — or for the collection — throughout this summer. (Schedule here.)
And, on October 12th, the whole Buried In Print family will be reading as part of Dewey’s Read-A-Thon. You can imagine how many stacks of books there are around here.
How about you? What are your reading plans for this season? (I know, it might not be autumn where you are: but it’s always reading season, right?)
(First time here? Please don’t be shy: there’s no such thing as too much bookchat! Please leave a comment, say hello, talk books!)
