You’re a reader. You’ve arrived at a reader’s page. Perhaps you’ve browsed around and see that we may share a taste in books. Well, here is an opportunity to leave me (and others) a book suggestion. The comments are open!!


13 Responses to "Suggest-a-book"

I just finished ATMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCES by Rivka Galchen and definitely recommend it. It’s a strange but intriguing debut. Also SALMONELLA MEN ON PLANET PORNO (see review: http://www.miamiherald.com/entertainment/arts/books/story/750373.html )

Ah thank you. I can appreciate a ‘strange but intriguing debut’. And, by the way, I hope your NaNoWriMo effort results in your own debut!

I’ve just finished “The Distance Between Light and Dark” by Shawn Scheer. I saw this on a thread and the title caught my eye. It was amazing. Here’s a link for it on Amazon.


Thanks Marvin. I’ll keep my eyes open for it!

Two books:
The Algebraist by Iain M. Banks
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

Ah yes, Connie Willis. And I’ve trusted you in the past, friend Darryl, so I will pick up some Iain Banks. 🙂

Here’s something a bit different, some comedy for you. Book called Journo’s Diary by an Australian author. You can find out more at http://www.journosdiary.biz

Thanks for the suggestion…looks like a fun book.

i’m gonna try to wrack my brian for this
have you ever read Life of Pi?
i always thought the book was interesting but i never felt like i had a very clear answer of its themes on religion….

here’s the wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_of_Pi

Thanks, Alice — I really enjoyed the Life of Pi. Personally, I think the reduction of that book, or any book, into its themes is one of the annoying things about book reviews. Life of Pi was a damn fine yarn. I was utterly floored by a lot of it…THAT, in my humble opinion, can be enough for a book to achieve greatness!

or try


kc dyer’s, “A Walk through a Window.” http://kcdyer.blogspot.com/
It is a great read for parent and tween or 9/10 year old. or an older child on his or her own. Fun, mysterious, and with a bright skateboarding gal stuck with her grandparents for the summer while her parents ‘renovate’ but she is not so sure about that… their home in Toronto.
Check it out!

Thanks, Lorrie. I think I’ve met kc…definitely heard of her, being a BCer myself.
