Todd Wong’s Top 8 List of Summer Reads

Todd Wong’s Top 8 List of Summer Reads

My
Top 8 summer reading suggestions was printed in our Library Union
newsletter for CUPE local 391.  The newsletter staff had asked for
suggestions… and this is what I came up with. 

1.     1001
Albums to Listen to Before You Die, (because I like lists, and I love listening
to albums).

2.     1001
Books to Read Before You Die (because I like lists…)

3.    Outlander
by Diana Galbadon (read it again) – Actually, I am working on the final
installment of the 6 book series “Breath of Snow and Ashes.”

4.   X-Men
comics by Marvel (not the movie). 
Because they are incredible!!! 
And I have just discovered that they are selling the 1st four
decades on dvd for $40.

5.   David
Suzuki – the autobiography  (because
Suzuki is amazing… the Greatest Canadian – still living… and because a signed
copy was gifted to me as a present).

6.    The
Golden Spruce (winner of the GG award for non-fiction, shortlisted for the BC
Book Prize for non-fiction but BC Book Prize winner for best regional, and
shortlisted for One Book One Vancouver…. Because I bought the book, love Haida
Gwaii… and author

7.   Da
Vinci Code – The Illustrated Version (not the movie).. in case you still
haven’t read it… because the pictures are cool.

8.   There
is a Season by Patrick Lane… (because it is the One Book One Vancouver choice
after all).

How am I doing with my summer reading list so far?
I looked at the “1001” books in the Chapters bookstore.
I am currently working through “Breath of Snow and Ashes.”
I re-read some X-Men, Batman and Spiderman (where Spidey marries Mary Jane Watson) again.
I was amazed at Da Vinci Code… finishing it just after the time the movie came out… in anticipation of going to see it
