Hey #Ottawa area Littens 🇨🇦 The Book Gallery is closing due to a series of unfortunate circumstances. They have to get rid of almost 100,000 books by June so they‘re giving them all away. Free books AND you‘re helping someone who‘s going through a rough time.

LeahBergen Oh, that‘s so sad. 2w

⚡️ Art of various sorts (relevant links in profile), cooking, puzzles, gardening. I also enjoy video games but I don‘t really have time to play them.
⚡️ I can‘t think of one I haven‘t tried but probably something more active than my current hobbies. I‘d like to try archery again.

1. Complicated question. Short answer: I live in 🇨🇦, specifically Ottawa. I‘m from here/rural Quebec.

2. I can‘t see myself living anywhere else permanently.

3. All I‘ve had time to read lately is the news.. so, everywhere.

4. Uhh Timbits are considered quintessentially Canadian (Poutine is actually Quebecois and maple syrup is Indigenous). Ottawa has BeaverTails.

5. 💙💚

Wow I haven‘t posted in forever. Haven‘t read much because March is a busy month. But in other bookish news, my 10yo niece and 13yo nephew stayed with me over their March break and I took them to Chapters—I don‘t think they‘d ever been in a bookstore before because there aren‘t any where they live. My niece emphatically declared “I want to live here” and I couldn‘t have been prouder 😂

I enjoyed this. It has some faults typical of a YA fantasy, namely that character development sometimes seems sped up in order to move the plot forward. However, the world building is nice and the start of the book is slow in order to establish character and setting. It‘s from an independent publisher so I know this isn‘t always possible but a map would have been handy. I look forward to reading the second book when it comes out.

I‘ve mentioned before that I tried listening to an audiobook only once in my life so I decided to try again. I downloaded the tagged on Libby for my flight. Not into it. Despite being stuck in one place for 3 hours with no other entertainment and listening to one of my favourite books, I couldn‘t focus on it. I just get too distracted for audiobooks, which is weird because I like podcasts.

mcctrish I have struggled with audio books as well. I keep thinking I will find the ‘magic‘ one that works for me 3mo
CouronneDhiver I don‘t always do a great job with audiobooks either... to each her own 😊 3mo
VeganCleopatra But you're ok with podcasts? That does seem strange. 🤔 3mo

teebe @mcctrish Good luck! I‘m going to try a few more but I think the only way they‘d be useful to me is if I follow along with a book. I need the visual element. 3mo
teebe @VeganCleopatra yeah, there‘s definitely times I have to re-listen to podcasts to fully absorb the info but for the most part, I can focus on them fine even while multitasking. Something about audiobooks makes them easy to tune out 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
teebe @CouronneDhiver yeah I don‘t think they‘re for me, I need something with a visual element. 3mo
VeganCleopatra Maybe because ABs usually only have one reader? Or podcasts are shorter and often have more chatter? 🤷‍♀️ 3mo

This is one of those books that pisses me off because it could have been good and isn‘t. I enjoyed the world and mythology but all the problems of the first book— plot holes, inconsistent characterization— are here magnified and piled under other issues. ➡️ Full review on Goodreads

If there‘s one thing I absolutely cannot stand in a book it‘s inconsistency.

I enjoyed the Irish mythology and historical aspects, and it‘s overall a fun read. However, there‘s a few plot holes and inconsistencies with the characterization that make me less willing to put up with the annoying main characters. It could have done with another round of edits. I will still read the 2nd book because I enjoyed the world and want to know what happens, but this could have been so much better than it was.

The historical parts of this book fascinate me. This part is dealing with how the rise of guilds supplanted what was seen as “women‘s work”. As domestic industries (like healing, ale-brewing, textile work) became professional, women were pushed out by men who were considered experts despite the fact that these had been women‘s jobs for centuries. The author also connects this with the rise of Christianity. Too bad it‘s a TINY part of the book.

I‘m often asked for book recommendations re: #Reconciliation or genocide in the Americas. There are many sources for that but one piece of advice I can give to anyone learning about #Indigenous issues: none of it is in the past. The issues those books detail are ongoing and unless you‘re also reading newspapers/blogs/etc dedicated to Indig. issues, you‘re missing half the story. Case in point, the raids by the RCMP on Wet‘suwet‘en territory.

CouronneDhiver It just makes me so mad. There seems to be no proper effort made to understand our Indigenous culture and values... You can‘t fix issues you don‘t acknowledge 😤 (I‘m 1/2 Native, 1/2 South African) 4mo
brilliantglow Our (Canada's) treatment of Indigenous issues is overall quite shameful. 4mo
JacqMac It‘s crazy to me that this is still a thing. Why can‘t we do better? 4mo
teebe @CouronneDhiver it‘s willful ignorance at this point 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
teebe @JacqMac Honestly? Because there‘s no desire to do better. Indigenous rights clash with what corporations and governments want.. namely, the money that comes from pipelines and other resource extraction. 4mo
