Ever since I was a kid I have loved books. I lived in the country with very few neighbors and even fewer children my age to play with. Books and the characters in them became my constant friends and companions. I remember when I got into high school and discovered they had a whole library and I could take out any of the books I wanted! There was this feeling of awe mixed with intense excitement. This room could take me anywhere in the world I wanted to go for a few hours. I still feel that way only Chapters-Indigo book store has replaced the high school library. Chapters keeps me stocked in books and I keep them from going in the red. This weekend I bought three books that look intriguing and I can hardly wait for a day to lay in bed and escape to some place more exciting than Vancouver.
The books I purchased were:

  • The Curious Incident Of the Dog In The Night-Time by Mark Haddon
  • Suite Francaise - by Irene Nemirovsky
  • The Glass Castle - by Jeannette Walls


  1. Those books sound interesting! I'm currently reading, "The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't".

  2. Oh the Glass Castle...I read it in one night...LOVE IT!

    I love chapters too, the first time I walked into one I just stood there. I thought...this must be what heaven is like.

  3. Hmm... drowsey- I think I might read that one first!

    Lorelei - I hope you are reading on your lunch hour in the staff lounge at work. Oh and leave it casually on your desk while you work too!

  4. Let me know what you think of it after you read it...some people I know loved it...others didn't, so I can't wait for your input!
