We seem to have lots of books in common. I'm also Canadian and like to read lots of Canadian books. I just joined Library Thing recently but I really like it so far.
It is so important to be able to make connections to a book in order to enjoy it. That is one of the first skills that we teach children. When I give my workshops on literacy, we discover that as adept readers we are unaware of the skills we use, we take them for granted. So as teachers of reading, we often need to re-discover the tools we use to make sense of a book. Your message reminded me of this, and yes, I have failed to enjoy hightly-rated and recommended books too due to a lack of connections.
Aaaaagh! I loved Late Nights on Air. I'd love to hear your opinion.
Thanks for the information & the invitation. It does sound interesting & fun. I am in Canada, however, so do not qualify (unless you get Canadian books that is - I read lots of those too!)
