♥ Book Title : Horse Meets Dog
☯ Full Synopsis : "“A wonderful read! You’ll never look at horses or dogs the same way again!” —Jon Stewart, former host of The Daily Show Horse is just an oversize dog with funny paws…according to Dog. And Dog?

My Brilliant Career has continued to delight readers and to cause them to locate their personal realities in the struggle of Franklin’s heroine, Sybylla Melvyn, to recognize and to pursue what she most wants and needs in her life. In addition to the rich selection of appendices, this edition includes maps of early twentieth-century Australia and a critical introduction that outlines political and economic developments relevant to the novel, traces the literary landscape upon which My Brilliant Career first appeared, and describes the reception and interpretation given the novel in the century after its initial publication (including the celebrated 1979 film adaptation)."Article| Miles Franklin| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Boundless
☯ Full Synopsis : "From the author of Annabel: A “compulsively readable” journey through the Canadian arctic that “lay[s] bare the beauty of both the world and the soul” (Globe and Mail). In 2010, Kathleen Winter embarked on a journey across the storied Northwest Passage, among marine scientists, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and curious passengers. From Greenland to Baffin Island and beyond, Winter witnesses the new math of the North—where polar bears mates with grizzlies, creating a new hybrid species; where the earth is on the cusp of yielding so much buried treasure that five nations stand poised to claim sovereignty of the land; and where the local Inuit population struggles with taking part in the global economy while defending their traditional way of life. Throughout Winter’s journey, she learns from fellow passengers who teach her about Inuit society and history. She bonds with Nathan Rogers, son of the late Canadian icon Stan Rogers, who died in a plane crash when Nathan was just a young boy. Nathan’s quest is to take the route his father never traveled, except in his beloved song “The Northwest Passage,” which he performs both as anthem and lament. And Winter guides readers through her own personal odyssey, emigrating from England to Canada as a child and discovering what was lost—and gained—as a result of that journey. In prose charged with vivid descriptions of the land and its people, Kathleen Winter’s Boundless is “a profound and lyrical memoir of a transformative journey” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)."Article| Kathleen Winter| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Bookshop Book
☯ Full Synopsis : "We're not talking about rooms that are just full of books. We're talking about bookshops in barns, disused factories, converted churches and underground car parks. Bookshops on boats, on buses, and in old run-down train stations. Fold-out bookshops, undercover bookshops, this-is-the-best-place-I've-ever-been-to-bookshops. Meet Sarah and her Book Barge sailing across the sea to France; meet Sebastien, in Mongolia, who sells books to herders of the Altai mountains; meet the bookshop in Canada that's invented the world's first antiquarian book vending machine. And that's just the beginning. From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over two hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we've yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world. -- "A good bookshop is not just about selling books from shelves, but reaching out into the world and making a difference." David Almond (The Bookshop Book includes interviews and quotes from David Almond, Ian Rankin, Tracy Chevalier, Audrey Niffenegger, Jacqueline Wilson, Jeanette Winterson and many, many others.)"Article| Jen Campbell| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : In Another Country
☯ Full Synopsis : "Asking what Indian readers chose to read and why, In Another Country shows how readers of the English novel transformed the literary and cultural influences of empire. She further demonstrates how Indian novelists writing in English, from Krupa Satthianadhan to Salman Rushdie, took an alien form in an alien language and used it to address local needs. Taken together in this manner, reading and writing reveal the complex ways in which culture is continually translated and transformed in a colonial and postcolonial context."Article| Priya Joshi| Statement ..."
