Like last year, this summer will be crowded with Fringe for me, so I have picked two books to read over the summer months in preparation for 2 consecutive weeks of #yegbookclub. Hopefully you'll be able to join me for one or both of them! I will be reading more than two books. Someone mocked me last year for 'only' having 2 books on the docket. It's just that in September I only have 2 weeks for the #yegbookclub!
A novel of letters. A book of wonders. A story of love, loss, and life on Earth. The story begins in the pre-internet age with a letter left at the front desk of a hotel in Iceland. The recipient, Martha Geddes, is a neophyte journalist from New York, the sender, James Weaver, a rebellious young ecologist from Vancouver. Despite the fact that their lives couldn’t be more different, they feel a mutual attraction, the problem being that they live on opposite sides of a continent and one of them happens to be married to someone else.

We'll partake in the #yegbookclub for Every Blade of Grass on Monday, September 14, 2015 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. Edmonton time on twitter! Hope to see you there.
