One of my goals in 2014 is to find a bookish community in my own backyard, so I joined a local book club (I am yet to attend a meeting). The book for February is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and it took me completely by surprise how much I enjoyed reading this book. After reading nothing but classics for the last 15 months, this book had more impact on me than probably the last 6 classics I read. I didn’t realize I was craving more contemporary stories. No antiquated words, trying to figure out the historical context, shrugging off outdated perspectives and weird social norms. I was already planning to read more Canadian literature this year, but now I’m thinking of reading whatever takes my fancy. But does branching out from my niche of reading the classics mean I’m no longer ebookclassics? Do I need a new name or blog?
For Comedy Nerds
For any fellow fans of stand-up comics and comedy shows, I thought I would share this very comprehensive list of books written by comedians. I’ve only read Bossypants by Tina Fey, but I think I need to read more of these stat!
What are you reading in February?
