It’s Day 12 of KIRBC’s push to Keep Toronto Reading, and because she’s hella dedicated to good books (not to mention my internet schemes), Erin Balser‘s got another great reco for us (not to mention yet another waiting in the wings! Did you hear that? That’s the sound of the gauntlet being thrown down, friends). Today, in another truly excellent distillation from a pithy pro, Ms. Books in 140 urges us to pick up Afterword Reading Society pick, Daniel O’Thunder by Ian Weir:
Erin Balser (@booksin140) is a writer, critic, and consultant living in Toronto, Ontario. A displaced Maritimer, she drinks way too much coffee, spends all her time on the internet, pretends she’s a vegan, and writes things. You can find her writing such things at Books@Torontoist, where she’s the senior editor, and Bookclub-in-a-Box, where she’s the associate executive director. Her latest project, KIRBC Presents Books in 140 Seconds hit YouTube airwaves this spring, and her first book, Don’t Stop Believin’: The Unofficial Guide to Glee will be published by ECW Press this fall.
Feeling shamed by Erin’s 3 videos when you haven’t made one? Email me for info (j.k.knoch[at]gmail.com) before she makes it 4!
And for those of you who internet detox on the weekend, don’t forget to check out our last two videos: Julie Judkins recommends Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? and Anne Pilkey recommends Fishing for Bacon.
