First 13 for 2013

I’ve decided to focus on reading more paper, less online.

So here’s the start of Books Read in 2013 from the 95 books in a year idea. The first 10 I’m finished, the others I’m still reading.

  1. Day and Night: Poems by Dorothy Livesay (Oolichan Books, 1944, 2011)
  2. Life in a Medieval City by Frances and Joseph Gies
  3. Still: (to be) Perpetual by Matthew Cooperman (dovetail, 2007)
  4. Cleo & the salamander by Amanda Earl (le Temps des Cerises, 2012)
  5. Newspaper Blackout by Austin Keon (Harper, 2010)
  6. Memoirs by Evelyn H.C. Johnson (Chiefswood, 2009)
  7. The Wild Braid: A poet reflects on a century in the garden by Stanley Kunitz (Norton, 2005)
  8. English Montreal Poetry of the Seventies, edited by Andre Farkas and Ken Norris (Véhicule Press, 1977)
  9. Methodist Hatchet by Ken Babstock (Anansi, 2011)
  10. Conflict by Christine McNair (BookThug, 2012)
  11. Agony by Steve Zultanski (BookThug, 2012)
  12. Warrior Poet: A biography of Audre Lorder by Alexis de Veaux (Norton, 2004)
  13. Pauline Johnson: Her Life and Work by Marcus van Steen (Hudder & Stoughton, 1965)

I’m thinking I’ll post the done list at the end of each month. But here’s to a start…

And here are others who do 13 Thursdays.

  1. the only one that’s familiar to me is Life in a Medieval City. I’ve read that one. I think these authors have published other similar books?

  2. They seem to have made a career out of different angles of medieval life. We’re reading two other of their books on it as well.

  3. Looks like some heavy reading.

  4. I must confess, I haven’t read any of these. I need to broaden my outlook, though, and some of these titles are intriguing.
