It's Monday! What Are you Reading?

It's time for It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Hurricane Sandy edition.  While we definitely won't be getting the brunt of the storm here in Toronto as the US East Coast will be, we're expecting to be hit by the outer reaches of Sandy.  The call here is for up to 100mm of rain and 100km/hr wind gusts overnight tonight.  So we've got our water, food, flashlights and batteries and most importantly I've got my books.

Here is what I'll be reading during the storm (since I'm assuming I won't be able to pull in many television stations from New York on my over the air antenna tonight.)

 

The Imposter Bride by Nancy Richler - this is the last book I need to read on the Giller Prize shortlist before the winner is announced tomorrow night.

Charlotte Street by Danny Wallace - found this through another blog (Leeswammes' Blog) and it sounds very funny.

What are you reading this week?  If you're on the East Coast, I hope you're keeping safe during the storm!

  1. I'm weathering Sandy in the DC area. At least I have the day off today! Good luck with the storm and good reading...

    1. I hope you didn't get hit too hard in DC! It was quite the storm on the coast.

  2. I hope you keep safe, Shan. At least you've got some good books to keep you going if nothing else.

    1. We were very lucky here, other areas of the city had it a bit worse but it was lighter than they thought it would be. I made sure to get to the library early yesterday morning so I had my books!

  3. I read a couple of books from the Giller Prize long list, but none from the short list yet. I'll be looking forward to hearing who wins :)

    Stay safe during the storm and enjoy your books!

    1. The excitement is building, the announcement is tonight! It was a good list this year, though no book I can point at and say "that is the winner for sure."

  5. Is Nancy Richler the daughter of Mordecai Richler? I heard about the latter from a Canadian friend. Anyway, The Imposter Bride looks fantastic and I'll be sure to be getting it when it gets released here in January. And I have Charlotte Street as well and need to get to it soon.

  6. They are actually cousins! I hadn't made the connection, but you mentioning it made me go look it up! So far, The Imposter Bride has been really good.
