WordPress appears to be making it snow on my blog. Festive.
It’s December. Day one of advent calendars in our house and on this blog. Along with reviews of books about books, there will be daily book art to count down the days until books appear under the tree. Right, Santa?

Also in blog news, I am one of the panelists for Canada Reads Independently over at Pickle Me This. My selection is Thomas King’s Truth and Bright Water, which will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me. Head over there to read all about it, and, hopefully, read along with the rest of us.
I loved Kerry’s Canada Reads Independently last year. A lovely, varied pile of great Canadian reads, and through it I reconnected with Carrie Snyder. Her short story collection Hair Hat was one of the recommended books, and I discovered her fabulous blog, Obscure Canlit Mama. I can’t wait to see what’s in store this year!
