Beginning in November

 

I'm still busy reading selections from the CanLit prizelists, I've recently finished Thea Lim's An Ocean of Minutes and am slowly reading through Eric Dupont's Songs for the Cold of Heart (Trans. Peter McCambridge), both shortlisted for the Giller Prize, both very good and quite different from one another. 

 

For Margaret Atwood Reading Month, I'm re-reading Life Before Man.

 

For a reading challenge, I am exploring Zora and Me, a fictionalized biography for middle-grade readers.

 

Finally I've gotten into reading Ms. Marvel (the third volume).

 

And I'm also a few chapters away from finishing Elizabeth Arthur's Antarctic Navigation. It has been on my shelves, unread, since 1994, but it is just wonderful: slow and dense and snowy. I am lost in it, in the best way, and I'm not sure I remember what my stack looks like without this bulky volume in it.
