PQ Weekly Roundup: 11 Sep 2015

pqroundup2Every Friday, the PQ Weekly Roundup collects the most shared links in our social media network—bookish articles, reviews, quizzes, recommendations and more—in convenient digest form.


  • The big news this week was the Giller Prize longlist announced on September 10. Coach House Books, House of Anansi and Biblioasis represented indie publishers with a total of five nominations.
  • You can never have enough pictures of gorgeous libraries. They’re inspiring, OK?
  • In preparation for the long-awaited release of Mexican Journal, we’re celebrating the work of P. K. Page with these five reading recommendations.
  • We keep hearing doom-and-gloom stats about closing bookstores nowadays, but Borderland Books in San Francisco is testing out a new model of operation to keep doors open. Is sponsorship the way to go?
  • And finally, it looks like everyone is all geared up for the Fisher Small and Fine Press Fair taking place Saturday, September 12 at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library in Toronto. Yours truly will be joining the fun with publisher Tim Inkster. A little birdy told me that we might have a few author visitors, too!
