The April 2020 book industry survey revealed that Canadians have been reading 58% more during Covid19. As we face a staycation summer, reading will likely remain as a favoured activity. I share with you books I'm looking forward to reading over the summer. This year I'm committed to reading young and emerging authors, writers new to me. There is nothing like reading another book from a well-established writer who continues to surprise and delight, so I have included a short list of those old-friends. The pandemic has shaken what we know as normal, so I encourage you to embrace reading with the same openness to change and pick up a book by an author new to you.
Have a safe and relaxing summer.
I'm looking forward to reading the newest offerings of some of authors I read consistently:
All Adults Here Emma Straub
Redhead By The Side of the Road Anne Tyler
A Children's Bible Lydia Millet
Sorry For Your Trouble Richard Ford
The Glass Hotel Emily St John
The Night Watchman Louise Erdrich
A Long Petal of the Sea Isabel Allende
