    My favorite crime fiction writers are: Michael Connelly, Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbo. All great authors. Curious to know if there are any Dobber members who agree or have other fave crime writers.

    Buying books is for rich people. For the rest of us, books are free at places called libraries.

    Most of the time, 90% of the time I buy in used book stores. I'm addicted to that stale, mothball smell. The books are also a fraction of the price. Usually the non profit literacy store here in town, offer free services to anyone to help them learn to read. When I get to Victoria, there is this amazing place, Russell's Books.. two stories. Sydney, just outside of Victoria has like 10 used book stores. I usually go alone and with cash, no cards, or I'll spend too much.

    when push comes to shove or I'm hunting for a very specific book, I'll hit amazon and still buy used copies

    Currently reading Rawi Hage - Carnival. What an amazing Canadian writer. I've already read his other two novels De Niro's Game and Cockroach. The main character was born into the circus, as an adult became cab driver. It's not just a book or novel. This is literature. There's a beauty to his writing and descriptions that are void in so much of what is published these days

    I just picked up Charles Bukowski's "Women" -- this will be next up on my reading list. Two of my fav authors right here.

    (I could really use a new Rawi book published)

    I have an annual Remembrance Day tradition. I always read a non-fiction book based on a Canadian conflict leading up to Remembrance Day. I find it's a great way to put
    back into perspective every year the sacrifice the men & women of our Armed Forces and their families make for our country and for every single one of us.

    This year... "Fifteen Days - Stories of Bravery, Friendship, Life and Death from Inside the New Canadian Army": By Christie Blatchford

    My facebook is 'filled' with Afghanistan veterans. These are men and women I went to school with, played sports with, drank with, have been friends with for decades. Brings 11/11 into a whole new perspective when it's peers I am recognizing and thanking as well as those from years past.
