Highway of Tears | Jessica McDiarmid
post image
Pickpick

What a heartbreaking, important book. Highway of Tears tells the story of the dozens of indigenous women who have disappeared or been murdered along a remote stretch of road in northern British Columbia.

McDiarmid lays out the history of the area, the lack of attention given to the missing women, and their families‘ struggle to have their stories heard.

I love a good memoir and this is definitely that. This memoir tells the story of a young girls life in the wilderness and how she came out of it resilient as heck! If you enjoy memoirs I recommend adding this one to your list. 📚 Also she's a Canadian author so thats just a bonus! 😊

ShelleyBooksie I really enjoyed this book as well. 2h
Jemmygem I look forward to reading it 55m

I‘m “stuck” under a cat, so I‘ll choose some #redandwhite covers from my Kindle app. Most of which have quite a bit of black too. #dearDecember @Eggs

Vimy | Pierre Berton
Pickpick

Pierre Berton always writes solid, readable history books. In this one I especially liked how he talked about what Vimy meant to Canadians at the time of writing. Would be interesting to see if that perception has changed at all.

They saw the exterior of a charming cottage in summer. A fairy-tale cottage, with fish-scale shingles and #gingerbread woodwork. Flower boxes were planted at each window and cheery sunflowers and hollyhocks leaned against the sunny home. #QuotsyDec19

I bought this for my dad and I'm super tempted to read it before I wrap it. However, I have so many books going- and still not as much reading time as I'd like- that I doubt I'd finish it before Christmas. Under the tree it will go and I'll borrow once he's read it. 😁

Race day! 10k in the books! I ran faster than I've ever run in a race but didn't quite make my 10min/mile goal. Finished at 1:06:41 which gave me a 10:20min/mile average. Considering I had a pretty rough November dealing with some health lows, I'm proud of this. I didn't walk and a couple of those miles I even managed to run under 10 min so progress! Now bring me a book & some hot coco! I'm not going to move for the rest of the night. 😆

The Right to Be Cold | Sheila Watt-Cloutier

This was good. I expected more of the environmental aspect in the book. I ended up enjoying the biographical part of the book best. Much of the 2nd half of the book included her travels to various conferences and counsels to tell the story of the Inuit to put a “human face” on the environmental crisis in the Arctic. Surprising to me, I just didn‘t find that part as interesting. Overall, though, I liked it.
