Eat, Pray, Love - I have heard about this one mostly from Ange, but I gather it has received a lot of acclaim and they're even turning it into a movie starring Julia Roberts. I like to read the book before I see the movie, and it looks pretty good from skimming a few pages.
The Grammar Girl's Devotional - like a page-a-day calendar, but in book format, this "devotional" gives a grammar tip every day. Good grammar is important and thinking about good grammar is also important. It'll help me brush up on my grammar skillz.
This Book is Broken - a history of the Broken Social Scene. The format is mostly quotes/dialogue from band members, but beyond that the book itself is beautiful, with tops of photos and posters, kind of scrapbook-style.
What is Stephen Harper Reading? - I'd heard a bit about this story before I got the book. Yann Martel, Canadian author of Life of Pi, sends a book to Stephen Harper every week with a letter of recommendation on the book's behalf. This book is a collection of those letters. Hey! Maybe Stepherino prorogued Parliament to catch up on some reading...
What books did you get/read over the holidays? Any recommendations for me?
