Canada Reads 2010 announcement.

The Canada Reads contenders were announced this morning.

1. The Jade Peony by Wayson Choy

2. Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott

3. Generation X by Douglas Coupland

4. Nikolski by Nicolas Dickner

5. Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. I wanted at least one book on the list that I hadn't heard of.

Of the five, I've read one (Coupland), I own another (MacDonald), and I've put holds on the rest at the library.

Actually... I put holds on only two of the books originally. When I checked at noon, the third was available at my library. I planned to pick it up later in the afternoon but when I checked again around 3:30pm, it was already gone. I put a hold on it then and I'm now 9th in line. I didn't expect that to happen so soon.

On an unrelated note, the wheel in my mouse is misbehaving and it's making me a little bit crazy. I tried cleaning it (which was not easy) but it didn't really help.

On another unrelated note, J & L are still sick.
