I just finished reading Bernhard Schlink’s The Reader …. And am just starting Dominion by C.J. Sansom.
I am reading Lakeland by Allan Casey. It’s a fascinating look at how Canada – our culture as well as our landscape – is defined by our freshwater lakes. It provides thoughtful insights into the Canadian identity at the same time as offering some sobering food for thought. Plus, as a bonus, it is beautifully […]
The Queen of the South by Arturo Perez Reverte.
I just finished reading Soulless, the first book in the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. It was a hilarious and light read. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I’m also getting through Hard Choices by Hillary Clinton. I love memoirs but tend to read them slower than […]

Queequeg is also a hilarious character whose straight forward actions/thinking constantly surprises other characters’ sensibilities (feels like Dickens in that sense). […]
What I was reading in The Dome: “The Martian” by Andy Weir I felt I had to, as the movie’s coming out soon and everyone was asking what I thought of it. It was a fun read, and the technical details were extremely well researched. I’m very much looking forward to the movie to see how […]
