Fall is definitely my favourite season. I love getting out the warm sweaters and scarves, the colours of the leaves, sitting on the balcony wrapped in a blanket sipping a warm cup of tea. Not to mention the excitement of back to school, the season premieres of favourite television shows (Big Bang Theory anyone?) and cooking meals that warm you up from the inside out.
Fall is an exciting time for readers as it is when many of the major awards are given. This year the Man Booker Prize for fiction will be announced on Tuesday 18 October. The Scotiabank Giller Prize for Canadian fiction will be announced on Tuesday 8 November. Join me as I try to read through all of the books on the Giller longlist and hopefully many of the books on the Booker longlist.
Here at Curled Up With a Good Book and a Cup of Tea I look forward to reading a lot of Canadian literature, blogging and tweeting about books in the news, and pretty soon a giveaway. Stay tuned!
