|Well, that went fast!|

Then the leaves begin to fall and as the nights grow longer and your facebook events tab is filled up with events you know it is the start of another season in Canada: book launch season!
Here is a recent snap of my to be read shelf (don't show them the other shelf where you started a pile of books you've borrowed from your y/a author friends Jan and don't talk about the books you continue to take out of the library!) You'll see lots of titles written by my local writing peeps and many more.
|Heaving with words ... to be read!|
Which is why I instituted the rule that I can't buy more books unless they are written by my friends (or are for research purposes). Said rule has been broken countless times since -- baby steps.
Well, I have no shortage of friends who write books so there is no fear of that shelf being clear for a long time!
Here's a short list of my writing peeps launches coming up, in this, the Canadian season of book launches.
First on the docket is Chris Turner's collection of literary non-fiction essays: How to Breathe Underwater. Wednesday October 8th, 6 pm - 9 pm, Shelf Life Books 1302-4th Street SW.
Second on the docket is Lori Hahnel's launch of her new novel After You've Gone (Thistledown Press). It's Thursday October 9th from 7-9:30 at Memorial Park Library 12th Ave @ 2 st. SW Calgary. There will be musical guests and refreshments (that's writer code for wine!).
