Mini Update Sticky Post: November 17, 2018 Reading from the CanLit prizelists has been keeping me busy. Eric Dupont’s Songs for the Cold of Heart (Trans. Peter McCambridge), was my last read for this venture and I paid the biggest library fine I’ve ever had for a single item in order to finish it. For Margaret Atwood Reading Month, I’m re-reading Life Before Man. Finally I’ve gotten into reading Ms. Marvel (the fifth volume). In non-fiction, I’m reading Sharon Butala’s The Girl in Saskatoon: A Meditation on Friendship, Memory, and Murder alongside Muriel Spark’s autobiography, Curriculum Vitae. Along with a debut novel by Patty Yumi Cottrell and a soon-to-published collection by Nilofar Shidmehr. So. Many. Good. Books.
Exploring my grandmother’s copies of Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna stories. (I’ve finished reading the 16th and final volume.)
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
