Decoda’s Summer Reading 2019 – Christie

At this time in my life my summer reading can be divided into two categories: books I will read and books I’d like to read but probably won’t manage to. The first category includes books I’ll be reading with my almost five year old. A current favourite of mine is the Dory Fantasmagory series by… Read more

Decoda’s Summer Reading 2019 – Gail

Once again, Stanley the Dog is writing Gail’s summer reading blogpost. Thanks, Stanley! The Secretary is a new novel by Renée Knight. It is so good it deserves a lick. It begins with “The secretary is the most dangerous person in the room.” How can anyone not read further? For me, a big dog is… Read more

What are you reading this summer? Decoda staff members have a tradition of sharing what they’re reading or planning to read, and I’m starting off this year’s series by writing about two things that influence what I’ll be reading this summer (or really any time). First, I love reading lists. Any time I see something… Read more

Decoda’s Summer Reading 2018 – Christie Case

My summer reading wish list is unrealistically long. It’s always too long, and that’s exactly how I like it. If I can’t spend my entire summer laying on the grass reading book after book, I like to at least allow myself room to consider what I would be reading, if I could. It’s quite likely… Read more
