Todd Wong’s Top 8 List of Summer Reads
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.
Albums to Listen to Before You Die, (because I like lists, and I love listening
Books to Read Before You Die (because I like lists…)
by Diana Galbadon (read it again) – Actually, I am working on the final
installment of the 6 book series “Breath of Snow and Ashes.”
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.
Suzuki – the autobiography (because
Suzuki is amazing… the Greatest Canadian – still living… and because a signed
copy was gifted to me as a present).
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
Vinci Code – The Illustrated Version (not the movie).. in case you still
haven’t read it… because the pictures are cool.
is a Season by Patrick Lane… (because it is the One Book One Vancouver choice
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
