reading in Canada
As you can see, I actually own a copy of Two Solitudes. It was, in fact, the only book on this year's Canada Reads smack-down that I have read. It's probably not a great endorsement that I remember next to nothing about it. I think I sleep-read through it.
I am pleased that Lisa Moore's February took the title of The Book That All of Canada Should Read. Like many Canadians, I remember well the day the Ocean Ranger oil rig sank off the shore of Newfoundland. Thirty-one years ago to this very day.
Last year around this time, I heard a documentary on CBC radio (it might have been on The Current), about the sinking. If I am not mistaken, bits of February were read in that doc.
Congratulations to Lisa Moore! I am definitely putting February on my to-read list. I wonder how long the hold list is at the library?
