|Read All Over celebrates the bookworm in all of us, showcasing readers in Vancouver and the books they love most.|
Sarah Evans is a freelance graphic designer and E.S.L. tutor. Originally from a small town in the Cariboo, she came to Vancouver after she had read all the books worth reading in her town’s public library. She was too impatient to wait for inter-library loans to arrive.
What are you currently reading? Your thoughts on it?
Right now I have two books on the go: The Dog Stars by Peter Heller and My Seductive Cuba by Chen Lizra, which I first read about on the Vancouver is Awesome Holiday Lit List in December. I love the pace of Heller’s story. I’m a bit of a post-apocalypse junkie when it comes to fiction and movies. The Cuba book has me wanting to book a flight and take off right now.
Favourite Vancouver/Lower Mainland writer?
I know people usually pick fiction writers, but I love Stanley Coren’s books. I remember reading Why We Love The Dogs We Do and so much made sense. I think I’ve read most of the books he’s written about dogs and each one gives me a better understanding of all the dogs I know.

Pretty much every way, although I haven’t listened to any audibooks for a while. I love the tactile nature of books, so obviously the actual object is preferable, especially if it a reference book or a photography or design book.
