CBC Books' Summer Reading List for 2013
They call Bone and Bread a "dazzling debut" (!!!).
In terms of the rest of the list, I read Where'd You Go, Bernadette? in a couple of days last week and really loved it. It's hilarious and memorable and unique. Born Weird by Andrew Kaufman is also funny and brilliant and big-hearted.
The days are passing in a blur of laundry and lightning-fast research and decisions about our new place... looking around for furniture and (maybe this is just me...?) wondering why everything is ugly and overpriced. (Or why everything I like somehow turns out to be $7,000?!) Even IKEA is looking expensive after all the costs associated with the fire and the renovations. Now we're trying to decide what can wait and what needs to be right now. Beds are a must, but tables and chairs can wait...? Couches? Patio furniture seems like a luxury that should go to the bottom of the list, but given the time of year, we'd also like to get it right away. I'd love to take my time and find the perfect things for our new home, but I know that when it comes down to it, it might be nice to have somewhere to sit, eat, sleep.
