Well, we’ve come to the end of summer, and this means my summer book recommendations on the CBC is also coming to an end. To commemorate the occasion, I got a little picture of myself and the trusty Doug Dirks to post up here, so you get a peek at the studio I inhabited for the past two months. Riveting, I know. Is it everything you dreamed of and more?
Unfortunately I don’t have a link to share with you to listen to my last segment, but for those of you who are interested, I recommended The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud and Give Me Everything You Have by James Lasdun, as my theme was “The Private Lives of Teachers”, in honour of the first week back to school.
I’m way behind in my book reviewing, so I’m hoping to get some full reviews of these books up on here over the next few weeks, but just in case I don’t, all you need to know is that they’re good books and you should read them! Especially if you need something to get you back in the mood for Fall. These aren’t ‘summer’ reads per say, because they’re not light and fluffy (they can quite dark actually), but they’re not as dense as some of the Fall books we have coming in the next few months either.
