Pic: Wintertime at the Yorkton Golf Course

I am from a prairie city and I have traveled around here and there in the past but I do love being in Saskatchewan's natural beauty like that shown in my profile pic. Also winter is a relief because it slows the world down; the world moves too fast. Lately my family is enjoying our new-to-us summer cabin at the lake, which has something for everyone (as long as we don't get rid of the WiFi subscription)

Lately I've been having fun "borrowing" books from all the Little Feee Libraries that have popped up everywhere. I register and re-release them in the same libraries and they disappear but unfortunately I have only had one book journalled that way this year. How are people not excited to connect with a book's previous and future readers!? I don't understand why people don't journal books!

I like historical fiction, and classic "storytelling" - such as what I found in "Solomon Gursky Was Here", where main characters are intricate or likeable, or where a place becomes a main character itself, and the plot is exciting, but the point of the book may stray a little. I recently read and thoroughly enjoyed The Studhorse Man and The Shipping News. The White Bone blew me away, I would highly recommend it.

Some of my favourite bookcrossed picks are:

The White Bone 10/10
The Shipping News by Annie Prioux 10/10
The Fig Eater by Jody Shields 9/10
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood 8/10
Twelve Weeks in Spring by June Callwood 10/10
The Black Donnellys by Thomas P. Kelly 7/10
Solomon Gursky was Here by Mordecai Richler 9/10
