Christmas 2010

An impressive haul, this Christmas, enough that people were looking around grumbling that next year books might have to be off the wishlist:
  • Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood
  • Hugh Brody, Maps and Dreams: Indians and the British Columbia Frontier (a classic, a gem, a treat)
  • Robert Budd (who I gather may generally be known as "Lucky"), Voices of British Columbia: Stories from Our Frontier (transcribed interviews from people living in BC in the early 20th century, including 3 audio CDs)
  • Douglas Coupland, Player One: What Is to Become of Us (the 2010 Massey Lectures)
  • Dave Eggers, Zeitoun (an upcoming Mook Club selection)
  • David Pitt-Brooke, Chasing Clayoquot: A Wilderness Almanac
  • Tara Saracuse, Island Kids (former student!)
  • Vikram Vij & Meeru Dhalawala, Vij's: Elegant and Inspired Indian Cuisine (best. food. ever.)
  • Robert J. Wiersema, Bedtime Story (an uncorrected proof, though I did ask for an autographed copy from Bolen's!)
Skewed toward Douglas & McIntyre, as it happens (Brody, Budd, Pitt-Brooke, Vij), but I'm okay with that!
