Canada Reads followup

You wouldn’t think that a silly literary contest run by the CBC once a year would have the effect it does.

Over the last week, I have seen people all over the place reading shortlisted books: Volkswagen Blues on the bus, Rockbound in the mall, everywhere.

I just put my name on the waiting list for Rockbound at the library. I am 158th in line. (I might actually get to read it this year.) Not at all bad for a book that was shrouded in obscurity only a few weeks ago.
