The idea of this blog is to facilitate the love of reading by collecting news about new books, or sometimes good old books. It is also dedicated to stamping out the scourge of e-books, Kindles, Kobo's, i-Pads, and all other such abominations.

Nanaimo Celebrates with its Authors

Over 100 people turned out for a celebration of Grandparent's Day with a reading by
Carol Matthews from her new book The First Three Years of a Grandmother's Life.
Rick Scott opened the afternoon with his song "Grandma". The reading ended with a standing ovation for Carol. If you were up and about at 7:00 a.m., you may have heard Sheryl McKay's interview with Carol on CBC.
Some of the proceeds of the book sales will benefit the work of Adrianne Dartnell and Rick Lennert who spend several months each year working in Cambodia and other South-east Asia countries building shelters and supporting women and children.
