- Congratulations to Barbara Sibbald, whose book The Museum of Possibilities launched this week. Many thanks to those who have been mentioning the book on Facebook and Twitter!
- Have you ever wondered what kind of books a Canadian PM might read? Here’s your answer (with bonus web comic, YouTube and TV picks).
- We always seem to be talking about debut novels, but what about fantastic sophomore efforts? Here are some of the best second novels of all time.
- Kilgore Trout and Sherlock Holmes were both (apparently) based on real people. Who knew? Check out a few other surprisingly real folks from literature.
- As readers, we all have pet peeves when it comes to our books and our reading lives. (*ahem* Dog-eared pages. *ahem*) Just for fun: you know you’re a reader when these mildly annoying things really get your goat.
Hope you’ve all been enjoying our poem snippets on Facebook and Twitter as part of our #PQLPoemADay. Nothing like a few lines of beautiful poetry to give you a pick-me-up later in the day!
