Book tastes

Interested in Canadian authors. We enjoy mysteries, horror (but already own everything by Stephen King), science fiction and spy / action thrillers. In non-fiction we enjoy psychology and sociology (why people do the things they do).

Don't get this!

Please no politics and no romance.

Other notes

We collect books signed by the author. We also both teach English (ages 12-18) and are always looking for great Young Adult fiction to share with our students.

Secret Santa

sp-patten's Secret Santa is Jen_Bartels. Help Jen_Bartels pick the right book.


xenophon: They own Robertson Davies best trilogy so the need one of Alice Munro’s collections of short stories - also perfect for sharing with students (Sat, 24 Nov 2018 11:15:47 -0500)

Jen_Bartels: I hope you like what I picked out, I had much fun choosing them. I also really appreciate you wanting Canadian authors, doing that research had expanded my own TBR list. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is one I think you and your students will really enjoy and it's the start of a series so the whole class can continue with Flavia if you enjoy her. The Barclay are books I've read and really enjoy so I hope you do as well. Merry Christmas!!! (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 12:56:20 -0500)

lorannen: Santa had some money left over, so, as xenophon suggested, I added Alice Munro's My Best Stories (9780143170396).

Done. (Sun, 16 Dec 2018 18:52:47 -0500)
