Finished reading the third book of this summer, which is surprising, since last summer I didn’t finish a single book I started. So far I have read:
- A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments by Roland Barthes
- Black Popular Culture ed. Michele Wallace and Gina Dent
- Brother Of A More Famous Jack by Barbara Trapido
All of these books were fantastic. I’m tempted to reread Barthes, instead I’m starting An Imperfect Offering by James Orbinski which I found buried in my bookshelf in Waterloo, bought at some campus book sale. Apparently, it was a finalist in the Governor General’s Lit Awards (2009). I guess if Michaelle Jean liked it, it must be half decent. Also, I was completely unaware that we had a new Governor General, and it’s been 2 years since he was recommended by Stephen Harper. That’s embarrassing.
Or I might just give in to James Joyce and reread Ulysses. That’s always an option.
