Mini Update Sticky Post: September 22,2020

MustReadEverything authors? Toni Morrison’s God Help the Child. Rereading? Carol Shields’ Larry’s Party. New-to-me? Roy DeCarava’s The Sweet Flypaper of Life. Debut? Jean-Christophe Réhel’s Tatouine. Dystopia? Adam Wilson’s Sensation Machines. In quiet moments? Ali Smith’s Summer. In extended afternoons? Langston Hughes’ Selected Letters. And from my 2020 Must-Read list? The final volume in Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Scots Quair trilogy.

So many books to talk about! Including what’s currently in my bookbag, notebook, stacks and reading log.

Also, preparing for some of the stories in Mavis Gallant’s Paris and Montreal collections in August and September (the ones which haven’t already been covered in short story reading project): join in, if you wish.

How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?

(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!)
