One night when the Rev Mr Dare was here to tea I used the word bull in my conversashun. I said Ilse and I were afraid to go through Mr James Lee‘s pasture because he had a cross bull there. After Mr Dare had gone, Aunt Elizabeth gave me an awful skolding and told me I was never to use that word again. But he had been talking of tigers at tea and I can‘t understand why it is more disgraceful to to talk about bulls than tigers.

Butterfinger I adore Emily's thinking. 16h

I love Canada Reads, even though I am not Canadian or live in Canada. I wind up reading all 5 books every year and will talk to the YouTube repeat while watching it. This year, I am happy because I have 4 of the 5 books. Small Game Hunting is the only one I can‘t get without paying 2x the cover cost due to shipping. I‘m ready! https://www.cbc.ca/books/canadareads/meet-the-canada-reads-2020-contenders-1.543...

BookishTrish If it makes you feel better, I‘m in BC and having a tough time getting Small Game too. The bookstore I went to yesterday had 2 in stock and the clerk could find neither. 19h
NerdyRev @BookishTrish I wonder if they are re-releasing it with a new Canada Reads sticker which is making it hard to find. 19h
BookishTrish I‘d say give it a week or so and it‘ll be more widely available 19h

It's been a while since a book made me cry. A very shameful part of Canadian history. This should be mandatory reading in Canadian schools, it was very eye opening. I always thought the schools occurred in the late 1800s (and they did), but this book is set in the 1960s. And according to Google the last federal residential school closed in 1996! I had no idea, how recent this all was. A very important read for any Canadian.

Krystle13 I got this one free the other month. I am torn on when to listen to it...ugh. It breaks my heart. I heard it was great and numerous people have said the same thing you did. 1d

#CanadaReads2020 shortlist
Since I don't live in Canada the Canada Reads selections can sometimes be difficult to get. One I have coming from my library, one is coming on Overdrive, two are coming as interlibrary loans, and one hasn't been released in the US yet.

LeahBergen I‘m so impressed that you follow Canada Reads when you don‘t live here! ❤️ 1d
Blueberry @LeahBergen haha. I wish there was the interest to do it in the US. I used to live on the US-Canadian border. Back in the days when all our television came from Canada. 7h

It's Canada Reads time! 🇨🇦 🍁 Every year, I'm less and less impressed with the debates that go on during Canada Reads week. Every year, I tell myself I'm not going to bother next time. But somehow, *every year*, I skim the synopsis on the short list and think “Oooh! That book sounds interesting!“ What's a gal to do? So many books, so little time. 🤷‍♀️


JacqMac This is so me. 😂 I both love and hate it. 2d

Not as good as I expected: I liked the premise of post-apocalypse from an Indigenous perspective (VERY well done by Cherie Dimaline with The Marrow Thieves) and the way the characters and community were introduced, blending traditional values with the immediate crisis. The more conflict-driven path it then took wasn't well handled, though, with a flat villain stereotype and weak ending.
