Now ... on my bookshelf

The library giveth and the library taketh back. I was 100 pages away from finishing Mercy Amoung the Children and enjoying the main character Kyle describe his family life as it continues to change and well ... deteriorate. Oh well, perhaps the whole set of Canada Reads will be on its way in a few days to take with me to Florida. In the meantime I am reading 2007 Giller Prize Winner Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay. I thought for sure that I had read an Elizabeth Hay fiction before, but reviewing her biography, I cannot find something that seems familiar. Of course, I can hardly be relied upon for this. My memory of authors, books and movies ends shortly after I have read/seen them. Merry Christmas and the Best of the Season to my fellow readers. See you in the new year!

On My Bookshelf

My Holiday Sale and Open House was this past weekend and now that the stress of that is done I am hopeful that I can get back into reading. Of course I still have pieces to make for my show in Florida in January and I am still open for sales up until Christmas, however I plan to create more time to read in the evenings. On my bookshelf right now is Canada Reads 2009 selection Mercy Amoung the Children by David Adams Richards. I also have The Outlander however I worry it will have to be returned to the library before I can get to it. No worries though, I have asked for all the books for Christmas so I can take them with me to Florida as I will have more than enough time to read there. It took me some time to get into this book as I was only able to read a few pages at a time, however I am now sufficiently hooked and reading the story of Sydney and Elly as told by their son Lyle.
