Mini Update Sticky Post: December 11, 2017 This week I’m still reading Charles Dickens’ Bleak House (inspired by the Guillermo del Toro exihibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario). I’m also finishing Naomi Novik’s Temeraire series (so good) and Christopher Barzak’s One for Sorrow, which a local bookseller recommended as a good read when grieving the end of a favourite series. Sherman Alexie’s memoir, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, is still with me. And I’ve been working on my stack of magazines by treating them like an advent calendar, reading one each day (and, then, I can read books): the pile is getting smaller!
And I enjoyed the diverse choices on the Toronto Book Awards shortlist, as well as the Writers’ Trust shortlist. (Talk of this autumn’s prizelist and event reading — here!)
My reading projects are still unfolding.
Exploring my grandmother’s copies of Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna stories.
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
