Mini Update Sticky Post: November 1, 2018 Reading selections from the CanLit prizelists, I’ve recently finished Thea Lim’s An Ocean of Minutes and am slowly reading through Eric Dupont’s Songs for the Cold of Heart (Trans. Peter McCambridge), both shortlisted for the Giller. For Margaret Atwood Reading Month, I’m re-reading Life Before Man. For a reading challenge, I am exploring Zora and Me, a fictionalized biography for middle-grade readers. Finally I’ve gotten into reading Ms. Marvel (the third volume). And I’m also a few chapters away from finishing Elizabeth Arthur’s Antarctic Navigation which has been on my shelves, unread, since 1994, but it is just wonderful: slow and dense and snowy. I am lost in it, in the best way, and I’m not sure I remember what my stack looks like without this bulky volume in it.
Exploring my grandmother’s copies of Mazo de la Roche’s Jalna stories. (I’ve just finished reading the 16th volume.)
How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
