Mini Update Sticky Post: July 29,2020

MustReadEverything authors? Alice Walker’s short stories. Rereading? Maud Hart Lovelace’s Deep Valley children’s stories. New-to-me? Hiroaki Samura’s manga. Debut? Deborah Hemming’s Throw Down Your Shadows. In quiet moments? Eduardo Galeano’s Upside-Down: A Primer for the Looking Glass World (Trans. Mark Fried) . In extended afternoons? Marlon James’ A Brief History of Seven Killings. 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!)
