January 3 - UVic Bookstore
I went looking for books I might teach from in the fall, and picked up three likely candidates:
- Bruce Braun, The Intemperate Rainforest: Nature, Culture, and Power on Canada's West Coast ($22.95, academic nonfiction)
- Sarah de Leeuw, Unmarked: Landscapes Along Highway 16 ($19.95, personal nonfiction)
- Eden Robinson, Monkey Beach ($21, a novel)
They all look good; the problem for me in planning this course will be the richness of texts to choose from!
(In other news, already I'm officially out of Christmas money to spend on books....)
