Time to Cozy up with a Great Book

October 02, 2017 | by

Fall is definitely here on the west coast, and that means rain for the next six months. But not to worry; we’ve got plenty of books for you to rea! Why not cozy up with a cup of tea while you watch the raindrops make their way down the windowpane?

In Search of a Better World A Human Rights Odyssey by Akhavan, Payam (09/08/17) 9781487002008 | House of Anansis | UTP Paperback | Price: $19.95

The author of this year’s Massey Lectures has been travelling the country, speaking about his experience as a war crimes prosecutor. His book is a real call to action for all of us.

The Good Lands by Dickenson, Victoria et al. (11/06/17) 9781773270241 | Figure 1 Publishing | RAI Cloth | Price: $60.00

This gorgeous coffee table book gives you a glimpse at the way Canadian artists have interpreted our incredibly varied landscape. From coast to coast to coast- and everywhere in between- artists throughout our history (pre- and post-colonial) have done their best to capture this incredible place.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated Edition by Rowling, J.K. ; Kay, Jim (10/03/17) 9781408845660 | Bloomsbury | RAI Cloth | Price: $52.99

What could be cozier than curling up for a re-read of book three in JK Rowling’s fantastical series, and poring over Jim Kay’s magical illustrations?!

Get Well, Curious George by Rey, H. A. (10/17/17) 9780544977501 | Houghton Mifflin Harcourt | RAI Cloth | Price: $20.99

If you’re anything like my friends and family, fall means the beginning of cold and flu season. Here’s a lovely read-aloud to share with the small people in your life, as they battle through the sniffles.

What I Think Happened An Underresearched History of the Western World by Rosen, Evany (10/07/17) 9781551526959| Arsenal Pulp Press | UTP Paper| Price: $17.95

Curled up on the couch, and laughing out loud at a book is one of my favourite activities (although not one my husband appreciates necessarily). This book by stand up comic Evany Rosen is just perfect for that. With a uniquely hilarious and feminist take on history, this one is right up my alley!

The Wisdom of Sundays Life-Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations by Winfrey, Oprah (10/17/17) 9781250138064 | Flatiron Books | RAI Cloth | Price: $38.99

Cool, fall days are also an excellent time for introspection. This collection of the wisdom Oprah has gleaned from her various guests over the years is perfect for quiet contemplation.

I hope everyone finds the perfect fall book for a cozy reading session!
