Canadian Electoral Reform

Hey guys, did you know that if we had a different system of voting in Canada, the chances are that Stephen Harper would not have gotten his Conservative majority last year? We can change that for the next election, or even just strive for more democratic elections in the future. Read this site and sign the letter! 🙂 Like this if you did! And please pass this on.

precariously balanced book piles

Here’s something you probably didn’t know: I work in a bookstore. So it should come as no surprise that my list of books to read is as tall as I am, and that the stack of books that is balanced precariously atop my nightstand is about… a bajillion pages thick. Right now I’m re-reading some books from my childhood, the Guests of War Trilogy by Kit Pearson. Next in line will be Divergent, a newly released dystopian novel by Victoria Roth, as is my new obsession (Dystopians, not Roth). And to yet more an unsurprising reaction, The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis. I wouldn’t be a very good book whore if I hadn’t read the winner of Canada Reads now, would I?

I also realized last week that I had yet to read The Lost Symbol; Dan Brown’s latest, of which I never miss. So I bought that to add to my pile. To demonstrate how diverse this “pile” of mine is.. I can tell you that it includes a Sarah Dessen novel, a biography of a polygamist wife, a Jodi Picoult book, The Tales of Beedle The Bard by J.K. Rowling, a grammar book, a (gasp) teen dystopia novel, Persuasion, a philosophy book, Debt-Free Forever, and a weight-loss method book. If you can find a pattern in all of that.. well, even I can’t.

At least I can attempt to broaden my thinking..
